Let’s be real for a minute. Life is messy. Best laid plans are cast aside every day because life happens, ready or not. But isn’t this what life comes down to? How do we react when the going gets tough? We all have those days when motivation fails us and we just can’t get out the door. Lean on the community when your own motivation fails. Then celebrate the wins when your efforts pay off. Before long you will see that wins generate motivation…not the other way around.

We are excited to announce the 4th Annual Catacombs Games! If you have been a part of our community for long, you know this is one of the highlights of our year. Much of the CrossFit world is dug in and focused on the CrossFit Open. The Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition comprised of 5 different workout completed over 5 weeks. Some Catacombs athletes will choose to compete in the Open but everyone should be a part of the Games. While the rest of the CrossFit world is steeped in competition, we are focused on building community. Read on to learn all you need to know to be a part of the Catacombs Games.
