WOD Friday, October 11


After this past weekend many Connex athletes have gotten the itch to compete again, and even some of you have gotten the itch to compete for your first time which is super exciting.  There are tons of competitions around the midwest to sing up for.  No matter what you are looking for in a competition you can find it…all ladies,  all beginners, all teams.   The bigger CF gets, the more options for athletes who are interested in competing.   The big one that we have on our Calendar is TNT battle for the cup.  Connex has traveled to STL two years in a row for this event and its a great one.  It is well run, attracts great athletes, and offers challenging WODs.  For those of you who are considering registering for this event I did find last years requirements for RXed and Scaled.
