Have you become hooked on CrossFit? Ready to test your skills?On Saturday, March 2nd CrossFit East Bay will hold the first Touchstone CrossFit Invitational. Members from CrossFit East Bay of GWPC, CoCo CrossFit of Diablo Rock Gym, and CrossFit Pipeworks in Sacramento, plan to meet at Great Western Power Company to compete in CrossFit as 'The Sport of Fitness.'
“For those who are interested in getting their feet wet in competition, it provides a friendly atmosphere to try it in,” said CrossFit instructor Maximus Lewin. “CrossFit competitions can be pretty intense and intimidating to the uninitiated. For our members who are doing the 2013 CrossFit Open it is a peaking opportunity.”
The event involves three different exercises. CrossFit East Bay described two of the events on the website and the third will be announced the day of the competition. Lewin provided some instruction for how participants can prepare. “By doing Constantly Varied High-Intensity Functional movement, and by working to increase work capacity across broad time and modal domains. Since 2/3 events are announced in advance, it is possible in this case to work on them directly. However the third event will not be announced in advance.”
