2012 CFI Games: Part III SIGN UP NOW

By Holley | In Competition | on July 19, 2012

Happy Birthday to Mike K, the guy who is always in BEAST mode but does it with a smile on his face!

As you all know, the sign-ups for CFI games close this Sunday, July 22nd. Having taken a look at the sign up list, I must say, we need more participation! Unless you have an injury or ailment preventing you from competing safely or already have plans for the weekend, sign up! This in house competition is a perfect way to get exposure to what a competition might feel like, especially for those of you looking to compete at the novice level. You will find that during competitions you will perform better than you do on the average day at the gym and it’s an excellent opportunity to PR! Most importantly, every person in the gym and all friends and family will be rooting for you to succeed! There’s nothing like your training buddy standing in front of you yelling for one more rep and not to put the bar down to keep you motivated. Another bonus to this in house competition is that your trainers will be programming the workouts, the same people who write your programming every day. You can trust that the workouts will challenge you, but you’ll be prepared and won’t end up injured. Plus, a movement list will be announced ahead of time, giving you time to become more proficient at any of your shortcomings.

This isn’t the first in house competition hosted at CFI. We’ve done an Olympic weightlifting meet and a powerlifting meet where we’ve had almost 100% gym participation. I think everyone had a lot of fun and definitely learned a lot from the experience.

I can’t express to you all how great an experience this is going to be and how much fun you are going to have! Also know, that if your name isn’t on the sign up list, you’ll find that many of your classmates will be hunting you down and encouraging your participation. For those of you that have competed before, in house or otherwise, or have already signed up and have words of encouragement to share, please post to comments! Refer to the previous two posts if you need to review the information about the day or which level to sign up for. I expect to see many more names on the sign up sheet in the next couple of days! :)

P.S. I still need more volunteers for the event, so if you or a friend/family are willing to volunteer for the day or just part of the day, please email me or sign up on the sheet posted on the office door. Thank you!

    Big Mike! Happy birthday, dude! Where to begin with the fun of working out with Big Mike? Could it be the pacer aspect I use him for… ok, I’m ahead of him, why? Crap, I went too light (sorry, Ruth) Ugh, why is he so far ahead of me – I don’t have my A game today.

    NOPE… it’s definitely the facial expressions face-off when squatting in racks opposite each other.

    Mike, you push me and motivate me. You’re awesome! And thanks for the great sense of humor, too.

    @Tom, I still remember that Sucktoberfest WOD and Mike saying, “It’s ONLY 10 minutes of work, right?”

    Coincidentally, Sucktoberfest will be rearing its ugly head next week.
