It is exciting to see the momentum happening with the CrossFit Open, with this video, and so many others being released. As a whole the organization is truly putting their efforts behind the Adaptive Community. We all need to show up and support this effort.
Don't let a small fee be a reason not to participate, there are many options available to those who really need assistance. Contact us for more information.
The following is from The CrossFit Open post:
“I think the new adaptive division of CrossFit is really, really good,” Rebecca Nagel says. “It’s showing people around the world that it doesn’t matter your ability — everyone can participate.”
Rebecca, 24, lived an active lifestyle until a car accident in May of 2014. The injuries she sustained resulted in a diagnosis of L-1 incomplete paraplegia. After recovering for months in the hospital, Rebecca started CrossFit “to get fit” and found a supportive community at her gym. As an adaptive athlete, Rebecca describes working harder, feeling stronger, and becoming more independent since modifying workouts.
This year, Rebecca is participating in the #CrossFitOpen.
“This is my first Open,” she continues, “so I'm not really sure what to expect ... but I'm really excited to compete and try something different, see where I rank among other athletes.”
