August is almost over - we can't believe today is the last day of the summer- and we want to thank everyone for a busy month at the Box, considering it was the holiday season and all. That's why we are very grateful to our members for their loyalty, passion and dedication to train with us. No matter if they’re tired or sore or hungry – they just keep coming through our doors. Such a super job.
It was an extraordinary month for us, too, because we were privileged to attend the Madison CrossFit Games in person.
Our trusted, loyal staff and Coaches made it possible for us to go and we thank them for running things smoothly in our absence. Two thumbs up!
We thought about sharing our highlights with you, as it was such a great experience.
During the previous years, The CrossFit Games took place in Carson, California, so this was the first time this event was held in Madison, Wisconsin.
The new Games venue was well organized, the food options were excellent (lots of healthy choices), the fittest people in the world were in attendance exercising on the competition floor AND sitting in the stadium seats. And Dave Castro (CF Games Director) made sure the events were very exciting.

Our biggest challenge was to see as many performances as possible, since they ran in different places simultaneously: for example, you might watch the Master’s compete in one area or go see Matt Fraser in the Coliseum or go to a weightlifting class taught by Coach Mike Burgener (yes–that Mike Burgener)!
One of the most amazing events was the run/swim/run taking place in the nearby lake during unexpectedly cold morning temperatures. The Obstacle Course on rain made the wood slippery and more challenging. Rogue did an unbelievable job building the course outdoors, which apparently cost 1 million US dollars to construct and it was taken down days later.
Over the course of 4 days, almost every individual athlete made each event look easy and it was highly inspirational to watch. The high level of energy in the stadium was so uplifting and not something we had experienced before in a crowd of strangers.
But the most important thing for us was the fact that we learned so much by attending various training seminars, talking to CrossFit Headquarters Staff and making many friends among fellow Box owners from all over the world. This is something we do everywhere we travel because we love it and because we want to improve ourselves and so provide all of you with the highest quality of training and equipment possible in Romania.
Attending the Madison CrossFit Games gave us a fresh perspective on our Community and renewed our energy and commitment to you. It also provided us fresh ideas to give you the best training experience we can possibly offer.
A big THANKS to ALL for making this dream come true so that we can help you with yours – day by day – as we all continue working together to be our very best.
Let’s train hard and watch for our new calendar of Replay CrossFit September Awesomeness!

“I’m going to get bulky.”
“I’m going to get injured.”
“I’m not fit enough for CrossFit.”
Experienced affiliate owners and coaches have been hearing these myths for years, and they’ve discovered ways to dispel them, helping people confront their fears and insecurities in the process.
The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes.
The CrossFit Games events are made up of a broad range of functional movements.
Functional movements move large loads, long distances, quickly. These movements also form the basis of our exercise program.
At each CrossFit Games, the athletes engage in a series of challenges unknown to them until right before the competition. The combination of highly trained athletes and unknown events makes for an explosive mix.
CrossFit has the proven ability to deliver world-class fitness to all—including women who are pregnant.
Life is not a sprint but a marathon of fitness that should keep you healthy after your 40s, after retirement and into the distant future.
People embrace CrossFit for various reasons: weight-loss, becoming stronger, health-challenges and so on.
For more than a decade, CrossFit delivered. Faster, better results than other training modalities out there. The evidence is crystal clear.

In gymnastics, completing a routine without error will not get you a perfect score, the 10.0—only a 9.7. To get the last three tenths of a point, you must demonstrate “risk, originality, and virtuosity” as well as make no mistakes in execution of the routine.

before. For now, forget all that you have heard and check out the top 10 reasons you need to try CrossFit.
But everyone feels fear at some point in CrossFit. Even the most experienced athlete fears heavy weights or Hero WODs.
