This is my first year to have an individual client of mine make it to the Reebok CrossFit Games. And, there are 2 of them! Hopefully we can keep this trend up. My goal is to have 10 individual athletes competing in 5 years time. Full Effort!
This is a picture of Michelle Savard from back in late 2011, getting her "engine" up to speed with what was to come in the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games: The Open. Lactate Endurance training = pain, but tolerance and efficiency builds quickly when progressed properly and things are in place, and only adds to the energy system that CrossFit will test in the Open on a regular basis - Aerobic Power. She will most likely punch me in the arm quite hard once she sees that I posted this picture. But, it represents the determination, struggle, and sacrifice one must go through to get to the top of the mountain (so to speak). Michelle has done that, and now she gets to compete at the Games, which has been a dream come true for her!
