Chris Spealler continues his preparation: he’s going to the Reebok CrossFit Games to win. Andréa Maria Cecil reports.

There’s one reason Chris Spealler is going to this year’s CrossFit Games.

“Honestly, I’m going to win,” he said. “I’m not going to have fun.”

After managing a third-place finish at the South West Regional with a performance nothing short of remarkable, the iconic CrossFitter is forging ahead in his preparation for his sixth consecutive Games on July 13-15 in Carson, Calif.

For the period before the Games, Spealler will adhere to training similar to that of his preparation for the Regional.

“Maintain the strength, but try to work on weaknesses,” coach Ben Bergeron said. “Keep the athlete confident.”

Generally, the focus will be on strength with programming that includes heavier weight at higher repetitions, followed by improving conditioning.

Great article on a great subject. CS proves there is no measuring heart no matter what size you are. Knowing there are athletes in CrossFit like Chris helps me maintain my passion for it despite the criticism, lack of support, and hateration from those closest to me. Chris is the little guy that can still pretty much kick your butt in most everything and I strive to be like that. He is literally the modern day version of David who uses his faith as his weapon against adversity. I hope he can make his last Games his most memorable.
