The summer is off to a exciting start. The CrossFit Games came to a close and two new individuals, Ben Smith and Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir, were crowned Fittest on Earth. And of course it wouldn’t be the CrossFit Games without the name Rich Froning Jr,. and his team, CrossFit Mayhem Freedom, taking home the Affiliate Cup.
The Main Line CrossFit beach WODs started during the July 4th weekend with 20+ Athletes in attendance and every Saturday since has not disappointed. New equipment is arriving to the Box; assault bikes, foam plyo boxes and platforms are all scheduled to arrive end of July and beginning of August. And lets not forget the 2nd Anniversary of CrossFit R5 on August 17th and the 3rd Anniversary of CrossFit Main Line on August 18th. New anniversary apparel is arriving soon to mark the occasions.
Also, mark your calendars for our annual October ‘Lifestyle Challenge’. We will kick off the month on Saturday, September 26th at “Half Hill Farm” in Malvern, PA where athlete, Chef Paul Marshall, is hosting a Nutrition Seminar at his farm to table restaurant.
