An “Open” Letter

The Open is past us now but I didn’t want to let too much time pass before saying a few parting words.  The Open is for measuring yourself.  Sometimes you actually exceed your expectations and sometimes you fail.  I think most people that are involved would tell you that in some, if not most ways, they exceeded their expectations and will be nervously looking forward to it again.  Most people use the event like feeling of the open to push themselves just that little bit harder than normal and their friends are cheering them on even more fervently than usual. 

Owner Operated

There seems to be a misconception out there that CrossFit Incognito is part of the Chillicothe Fitness and Racquet Club and that you need to be a member.  You DO NOT need to be a member of the racquet club to train at CrossFit Incognito.  The racquet club does not own or contribute financially to CrossFit Incognito.  We simply rent space and have a great working relationship with the club. 

The first of my Crossfit Open stories.

Everyone is nervous about the Open.  Everyone, even the people who have gone to competitions before and done well.  The people you see all over the interweb and Instagram and Facebook and in magazines…all of them are nervous before Open WODs.  You aren’t any different than anyone else.  So in at least one way you are just like Rich Froning and Camille Leblance-Bazinet!

It's Our 2 Year Anniversary

Welp, CrossFit Incognito has been in existence, in one form or another, for two years now.  I am feeling several things all at once and I hope it doesn’t distort what I am about to say.  This journey has been long and difficult…but so much more rewarding than I could have imagined.  I started this little venture in the hopes that someone would want to workout and let me share some knowledge I’d accumulated over four years of CrossFitting and coaching with them.  I hoped it would help me heal some of the wounds in my personal life as well…
