Competition Season Recap!

Competition Season Recap!

Over the last couple months, we've had several coaches and members participate in local competitions! Here's a recap of recent events for those who missed the opportunity to come out and see our community in action! 


Resident superheroes Atchie, Chris Meyer, and Anthony participated in this individual Rx competition. Events included high skill gymnastics movements such as burpee bar muscle ups, handstand push ups & rope climbs, barbell movements such as clean & jerks and front squats, as well as several strongman events including yoke carry, tire flip & atlas stone movements. In a group of tough competitors, Chris placed 7th out of 32, Anthony 25th, and Atchie came in 4th of 9 competitors. 


In this partner competition held locally at Diablo CrossFit, two teams represented GRCF. Marek and Atchie competed in the women's Rx division, and Chris M. and Jack (Atchie's brother who made a visit to compete) competed in the men's Rx division. Events included a thruster ladder with a snatch complex buy-in, chest to bar pull ups, burpee box jump overs, push presses, pistols, axle deadlifts, partner sandbag runs, ghd sit ups, hspu, and much more! Finals included a waterfall start, knocking bottom finishers off each round. Jack and Chris tied for 8th place to make it to the finals, but despite passing other teams, they couldn't make up enough time from the waterfall start to make it to the next round. (During the waterfall, teams started the event based on their current placing to reward the teams in the lead). Overall, they placed 7 out of 10 teams in the finals. This was a strong finish considering there were 37 solid teams in the men's Rx division. Atchie and Marek placed 9th of 25 teams, missing the finals by only 1 place. All around awesome effort by all! 

MAX's GYM OPEN (Olympic Weightlifting Meet)

In October, Melissa, Atchie & Sergio put on their singlets and made their way to Crossfit Oakland to compete in the annual Max's Gym Open!  Both Melissa and Atchie competed in the Women's 63kg weight class & both went 5 for 6 on their lifts which is great for their first competition!  Sergio weighed in and competed in the Men's 77kg weight class.  He was able to get a 1kg PR Clean & Jerk!  All three lifters did amazing thanks to the help of coaches Jim and Patrick guiding them through the meet.  They were also cheered on by a great contingent of family, friends & Grassroots community! 


Also in October, Melissa, Atchie, Rebecca, Patrick Barnes, and Chris Sutardja competed in their first strongman meet held Santa Cruz Strength. This competition included stone carry & load, farmer's carry, log clean & press, and deadlift events. While they were all looking forward to pulling a truck, due to rain, that event became a sled pull. All competitors not only had a great time but finished really well in the rankings! In the lightweight women's division, Melissa placed 1st, Atchie 3rd, and Rebecca 4th of 8 competitors! Patrick took 2nd for the men's 230# division, and Chris took 3rd in the 200# division. Way to represent, GRCF!


On November 9th, Chris Hench competed in a meet held by Norcal Powerlifting. Chris was able to consistently PR his lifts in training for the meet, and then hit another deadlift PR at the meet! According to Chris, "It was great to see that the powerlifting community is so friendly and welcoming to newcomers (and crossfitters!). It was also encouraging to confirm lifting standards at an official event and to watch lifters from diverse backgrounds (a couple runners were there too). I’d definitely recommend checking it out, but be prepared to spend an entire day there!"

We look forward to cheering on TeamGRCF in more competitions to come... check the calendar at the gym for upcoming events, and let us know if you're heading out to any events so we can come show some GRCF love!

I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily
basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online.

of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to
get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and
visual appeal. I must say you have done a amazing job with this.

Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari.
