crossfit-tnt-battle-for-the-cup-7

This past weekend we had four Connex athletes compete in the Battle for the Cup 7.  The battle was down in STL and was the first competition for three out of our four athletes.  Gillian, Alec, Holly, and Emily went down there and represented for Connex.  All of our athletes displayed determination, grit, and stellar fundamentals throughout the entire weekend.    These four athletes demonstrated the hard work and attention to detail CrossFit Connex athletes give every day in every workout.  Some of the WODs put them out of their comfort zone, but you never would have guessed.  They stepped up to every new challenge with courage and energy that was felt by everyone around them.  All of our Connex athletes  pushed themselves to new levels this weekend and I could not have been more proud to be part of CrossFit Connex as I watched and cheered them all on.

When you see these athletes in the gym this week be sure to congratualte them for all of their hard work and their impressive performances this past weekend.
