It's that time of year again – let's get it on!

The CrossFit Games are CrossFit's answer to the question, "who is the world's fittest man and woman?"  This weekend people from 11 midwestern states will be competing for 10 (5 men and 5 women) spots in the CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA.  CrossFit Verve will have a handful of athletes competing and hopefully, a representative crowd to cheer them on.  The details for the event can be found on the Regional Games website and all are encouraged to come check it out.  It will be quite a scene – that's for sure!


  1. Eric :

    Matt & Cherie – Best wishes to you and all your athletes tomorrow in qualifying for the games! I know you guys are ready to Go Get It! I’ll be cheering all the way from Atlanta. My money is on you, so Defend your title of CrossFit’s “Fittest Husband and Wife Couple” on The Planet! If you guys twitter let me know and I’ll follow you on twitter.

  2. Tiff :

    hey all! so any who are going to ca for the games, i HIGHLY recommend southwest airlines.
    you can get a nonstop round ticket for $160 AND if you need to change your flight…you can do it online with no charge (unless the flight itself is more expensive)
    i love them b/c my plans are in a constant state of change, so i utilize this feature with nearly every airline ticket i’ve bought from them!!! it’s wonderful…and they’re cheap.

  3. Anna :

    Is anyone meeting at verve tomorrow morning to carpool, would love to jump in with someone. Alan wil be bringing the hears from work just in case any “body” needs it later.

  4. Alan :

    Nice! LOL!

  5. Matt :

    Cherie and I are leaving from Verve at 7am tomorrow morning. Anyone interested in carpooling can meet there and we’ll work out some configuration that will minimize cars.
    On another note, bring food – good food for yourself. They are offering meal tickets which you have to purchase in advance, but I would recommend bringing something for a PWO meal(s) and a lunch that you know you can stomach easily.
    And another note… we have a couple of visitors from other affiliates across the country hanging out with us – please say hi and make them feel welcome.

  6. Anna :

    I will meet ya there Matt, Cherie how ya doin???

  7. Bryce/crossfitchicago :

    Thanks for letting Alex and me drop by today. Good WOD to test the lungs without killing myself before the competition tomorrow. Matt or Zac, if you get some of those shirts in before the weekend, bring by an XL and I’ll get you tomorrow or Sunday.

  8. Amy Schaeffer :

    I just wanted everyone to know that tonight, when the doorbell rang, I immediately put up my fist like someone was going to jacked in the face…..
    it was the delivery food man but my point is, I have more strength, confidence, and trust in myself than I ever had before.
    Without CF, I would not be who I am today.

  9. James :

    Crossfit Verve: Where pizza man assault happens.

  10. Erin :

    Amy–you are one bad ass chick. Hang in there sister!!!

  11. Luke :

    Wow, I’m nervous (go figure). Gonna watch Hot Rod to loosen the nerves.
    Amy, that dude didn’t stand a CHANCE! You would’ve squat-clean-thrustered that guy into oblivion.
    I wanted to thank everyone at the PM classes for working out hard, and giving me little pep talks for tomorrow. We’ll all do great.
    Word to your mother.

  12. Chris :

    What time are people competing tomorrow?

  13. Cherie :

    We are all competing starting with Joylyn at 9:00 and ending with Matt at 12:40 for the first heats and Starting at 2pm until 5:40 for the second heats.
    Good luck everyone
    Amy – I wouldnt be who i am w/o CF either.

  14. Carol :

    Wish I could be there to cheer you on. You are the Fittest Husband and Wife Couple I’ll ever meet. I am very proud of you both. Good Luck to you all.
