The first CrossFit Games at Two Rivers Correctional Institution (TRCI) were met with a high level of intensity. The participants pushed themselves to their physical and mental limits in the 100-degree heat. The course began with a quick Rogue Fan bike ride, then transitioned to burpee pull-ups. The course then moved to the weight section, which included clean and press, dead press, and thrusters. The next section incorporated TRCI’s one and only row machine, followed by medicine ball squats, bear crawls, and finishing with another Rogue Fan bike ride.
The course designer and Paradigm Shift Club member, Michael Dodge, wanted to develop a challenging event, incorporating multiple unique fitness stations. All five participants finished the event but were completely exhausted!
Adam Coopersmith won 1st place with a time of 9 minutes, 13 seconds (9’13”). Joseph Bernard followed in second place with a time of 10’12”, and 3rd place went to Carlos Jackson with 10’17”. The three winners enthusiastically accepted their exclusive prizes from the club.
