Now that the dust has settled on the 2016 open, we have had time to reflect. For some it was their first experience and for others it was an opportunity to measure the progress they have made throughout their fitness journey.
2016 has been a massive year for Celtic Crossfit. Taking a massive leap and moving into a bigger facility, kitting out the box with brand new equipment and investing a lot of time a energy into growing our #celticwarrior community and it has definitely been worth it. As a staff it was incredible to see so many of our members and non-members tackle the open workouts with commitment, determination and enthusiasm. Every single person bought into the Celtic Crossfit Affiliate Cup and made it an incredible experience for everyone involved.
It think it’s important to also mention Friday Night Lights. It was the first year, real emphasis has been placed on creating an event like experience every Friday, and that is thanks to every single #celticwarrior. The effort put into the catering, entertainment and of course the workouts was amazing and something we are extremely proud of.
Before you scroll to the scores I think it is important to mention some individuals, who volunteered their time to help us produce #fridaynightlights.
Firstly, Mark who gave up his time to DJ, which I think everyone will agree helps you guys push that little bit harder and squeeze out a couple more reps, secondly Luois Alonzi who produced awesome highlights of each evening, I am writing this with the understanding of how long it takes to record, edit and produce these video clips and he did it off his own back and in his own time, these highlights showed the amazing community that we have build in Celtic Crossfit. Also I think we need to mention Abby and Lulu and stu for the amazing bakery skill, I’m sure there are plenty of #celticwarriors who will gladly taste any cakes that are made 😉
And the scores are…..
Awesome work from all, but the 2016 #ultimatecelticwarriors are Team 4, can you all arrange to be at the gym at the same time at some point this week so we can take order for your customer DNA apparel t shirts and have a team photo.
