  • When registering of the CrossFit Games, be sure to select CrossFit Surmount as your affiliate! The first Open workout will be released on Thursday, Feb. 27. The fifth and final Open workout will be released five weeks later on Thursday, March 27. We will be completing the workouts Saturdays, with a make-up session held during Open Gym on Sundays.
  • Many of our athletes will be competing in the NC Fitness Challenge today. CrossFit Surmount will be CLOSED TODAY (Sunday). I encourage you to attend the event as a spectator and cheer for our incredible athletes!
  • The Barbell Club begins Monday, and will be held Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 8:45. There have been some last minute cancellations. Contact Coach Paul ASAP if you’d like to join.

Congratulations to our CrossFit Surmount athletes who competed in the NCFit Open, and thank you to our members who were volunteers! I’m very sorry that I wasn’t able to be there to cheer for you. I do know that many of our members were able to attend, and quite a few of you sent me updates, recordings, etc. May was even kind enough to call me via FaceTime so that I could watch you live. Many of you reached out to me and told me that you could tell a Surmount athlete by her or his focus on executing proper form. Yay!

A special thank you to Coach Liz for leading yesterday’s sessions!
