“Can’t Stop! Wont Stop!”
In typical Weekend Warrior fashion, CFBT’s very own Team Ultimate Victory Forever threw down the gauntlet this past Saturday and put their fitness to the test -trekking across an eight-plus mile stretch of grueling and rugged terrain, littered with more than 25 obstacles. We’re of course referring to the Seattle Reebok Spartan Race that was held on Meadow Wood Ranch in Snohomish WA this weekend. And perhaps the best part of the entire race was it’s hashtag (#WhyiRace), where each participant was asked to reflect on what makes them Spartan strong. And it was Agustin who
summed it up best with probably the worlds first Spartan Haiku:
Conquered unsurmountable heights,
with teammates help.
I ask for water.

An 8lb 10oz shout-out to Sara B for working out on the last day of her pregnancy… Only to tackle a second workout that lasted thirty hours. But in the end, it was all worth it. Sara and her husband are now the proud parents of Oliver George B., standing a towering 21.25″ tall. Congratulations, Mama B!

Rainier CrossFit’s Strongest Man & Woman competition is right around the corner –Saturday August 15th! This years festivities will once again be held in the parking lot just outside the Old Cannery in Sumner WA. Should you choose to participate, make a donation, or just be part of the audience, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details, ASAP!
This event began in 2006 as a way to combine a love for Strongman and a need for increasing awareness (and funding) of a little known genetic condition called Fragile-X Syndrome. It so happens that the proprietors of Rainier CrossFit are the proud parents of a son who was born with Fragile-X; the most common cause of inherited autism and mental disability yet largely unheard of, and thus drastically under-researched and underfunded. This charitable event is their call to action. So much so in fact, it has grown from five local competitors to four divisions of men and women, with more than forty competitors from five states. It has raised over $40,000 to date, and in the spirit of all things CrossFit… shows no signs of slowing down (in 2010, a CrossFit component was added to the contest, creating a surge in interest and attendance).
CrossFit Belltown humbly asks that you take a Saturday morning drive down to Sumner and spend a few hours supporting one of the strongest families in the CrossFit Community, and taking the time to give their beloved son a big high-five… he absolutely loves high-fives!
Time Cap: 12 minutes
Accessory: Accumulate 3 minutes in a Plank Hold
“Fear Tricks Us Into Leading A Boring Life”
But not these two! Fearless and well-dressed dynamic duo Team Dysfunctional Fitness (shown above -Agustin V & Derek F), garnered a ton of fanfare and support in The First Annual Downpour Games at Bellevue’s Reign City CrossFit this past Saturday morning. The competition was nothing shy of tough and grueling. Job well done!
