While there, cameras caught Terry Dickman, the fifth-place finisher from the 2010 CrossFit Games masters division and part owner of CrossFit Excel. He was competing at the powerlifting event to try something new.
“I thought it would actually help my CrossFit training, working on strength,” he says. “My goal is to try to get some PRs today.”
Dickman went on to share his Games experiences and how he found CrossFit.
“I was a little bit overweight, actually a lot overweight, you know, and looking for something that wasn’t so boring. After a month of doing (CrossFit), I was totally hooked and I’ve been doing it ever since,” he says.
In just two years, he became a Games competitor.
“That kind of tells you about the program or CrossFit, what it can do for somebody,” Dickman says.
