SuperFit Games Takes Over CrossFit Embark in Apex, NC



On October 8th, 2016, competitors lined up for the SuperFit competition in Apex, North Carolina. Hosted by the CrossFit Embark, the SuperFit competition consisted teams of two athletes tackling three grueling workouts, surely testing the will of everyone participating.

The day was overcast and the rain was pouring, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the athletes. Being confined only to Embark’s front area, the energy was 14715557_1098465156856713_1323185539184858085_obuilding as the competition began.

The first intense workout gave each team eight minutes to hit their 1 rm on a clean and jerk. Each competitor had four attempts to hit their Target. The host gym had a well stocked arsenal of plates which allowed teams to truly test their limits. Male RX team CrossFit Embark smashed it out of the park with a combined 695 pounds.

WOD #2 consisted of as many reps as possible in seven minutes of 2 bar muscle ups with 2 thrusters. Team #208 Old Farts proved they aren’t such old farts by taking first in the Male/Female Novice group for the second workout with a 242 score.

Only a few teams finished the third workout which had an 11 minute time cap for athletes to complete 30 calorie rows, 25 box jumps, and 20 snatches. A really grueling workout, even for those who are veterans to these types of events. Team #205 BoCo Jo’s just scraped in at 10:58, giving them a chance for the final.

The final workout of the day gave teams 15 minutes to complete 4 rds, 10 deadlifts, 3 rope climbs, 9-6-3 muscle ups, and 30-20-10 cals on ski erg. Team #310 Swedish Rose completed all of those in a stunning 5:40.
