Games, camaraderie, good food and skill work—these are the best parts of going to camp.
Baseball, track and field, and other sports have their own camps, so why can’t CrossFit? Or so went the thinking of Skip Miller, owner of Denver’s Front Range CrossFit, who recently hosted a group of firebreathers for a week-long training camp in preparation for the 2010 CrossFit Games qualification process.
Seventeen athletes were up against two-a-day workouts, Olympic-lifting drills, training on the rowing machine and even gymnastics work. Luckily, they were treated to great food and plenty of R and R as well.
In this video, Jordan and Paula Gravatt step inside Miller’s affiliate for a look at this new concept that was also employed at CrossFit New England.
