FireSteve hittin some snatches


Fire Steve competed this weekend in the NorCal Masters and represented Auburn CrossFit very well. He finished in 6th place. I don’t know about you but I’m pretty sure that’s damn impressive for a first year CrossFitter. Steve has been putting in some hard work and it’s beginning to show. There were 40+ men between 40-44 in his field. The NorCal Masters is the largest masters competition in the history of the sport of fitness. Thank you for inspiring us (or at least me) to step it up in the box. And thank you to those of you who went down to support and cheer him through 8 WODs over two days! Well done Fire Steve, time to get ready for the CrossFit open.


And a shout out to Christian of American River CrossFit who finished in 3rd. I hope I’m as fit as this dude when I’m an old fart, nice job C-Boy!

    Thanks Elijah for the kind words. Thanks to Elijah, Kyle, T, Molly, Dan and Lanette for coming on Saturday and yelling at me. It definitely pushed me to go harder and faster. It was a fun, challenging and at times humbling experience. I now look forward to more of this craziness in the future.

    it was amazing to see the masters compete on saturday. steve rocked the workouts, like always! now i really can’t wait to turn 40!

    intense steve and kyle: here’s a link to some online crossfit lingo flashcards in case you want to work on definitions. i found them while researching the sample test questions. from what i’ve read about the test, vocabulary is crucial.

    great lifting today! i love heavy lift days. surprised myself by lifting 20 pounds over my goal, which means i need to set higher goals for myself 🙂
