We have an exciting 5 weeks ahead of us with the CrossFit Open underway. Check out the EVENTS tab for more details on what the CrossFit Open is, when the WOD's are and why you should enter!
CrossFit2600 added 7 new photos.
Some more pics from this morning. Awesome effort from everyone!
Youth vs experience - Drago and Kane going head to head in 17.1 near the end of the WOD.
Dumbell snatch & burpee box jump over for time. Welcome to 17.1 team!
So it's the 7th year the OPEN is on and 2600 is proud to have been a part of all of them. Some great memories, Ness's first chest to bar pullup, Cookman's 193 attempts at 150 wall balls and when a sniper got all the young bucks on the row-thruster wod🤕🤕. We will be running them on Saturday morning during normal class times. If you need a certified judge (potential regional team/individual) 07:30-9 is the time slot to be in. It's a great time of the year and we really enjoy all the supporters that come and cheer the athletes on. Can't wait to see what Castro has thought up💪💪#crossfit #open2017 #canberra #moreburpees #morethrusters
Scott thinks the first month of CrossFit is the hardest, but promises it gets better.
"You are sore, but you keep coming back. It's hard to explain.
"If you want to keep fit, CrossFit is the ultimate challenge. It's not like weight training and focused on a few movements, it's so broad. It's got everything (cardio, olympic lifiing, gymnastics) and that's what good about it, it makes you work on the things you aren't good at."
CrossFit2600 shared Again Faster Australia's photo.
Congratulations to our very own Kat Baker who joins the Again Faster Australia team this year. A testament to your hard work and dedication to training, Kat, we couldn't be happier for you! Join Kat in the Open this weekend, team!

Val claims to be the laziest and stubbornest person on earth who hates exercise*.
After trying all kinds of diets, she found CrossFit and hasn’t looked back.
I first started at 2600 in 2011 doing one PT
session a week. I used to look at the group classes and think "these people are crazy" there is no way I will ever do this. I then left
Australia and when I returned three years later I gave it a go as my diets were no longer working (that’s what happens after you pass your 30s).
It took me two months to actually get up and attend the 6:30am class and it took me one year to smile during the classes (yes, I was grumpy - I love my sleep). But I kept going because 2600 taught me that to keep fit, you have to work hard and eat clean and that’s the best thing about 2600, the coaches educate you in how to eat clean, how to accomplish your
goals and the most important, they are tough, they really look at what you doing, so there is no way for you to cheat (believe me I have tried so many times).
So if your goal is to be fit for life, 2600 is the
best place to be :O) come and enjoy the ride.

The secret ingredient to long term gains: Fun. If you don't combine laughter and sweat in your training you're missing out! Let's hope Castro throws in juggling for time. #crossfit #team2600 #open2017 #crossfit2600 #kingston #keepsmiling
2600s self confessed trouble maker George has some hard learned advice for new starters - "don't be late".
But he encourages anyone concerned about tackling the movements in CrossFit to come in and give it a go.
"I think a lot of the reason people are scared or worried about taking up CrossFit is the Olympic lifting and those kinds of movements. But they don't need to be worried - that's what the coaches are there for. The coaches will worry about your technique and help you to get it right. They won't let you move on until you are able to do the movements correctly."
Well done Steve C, Drew, Caz, Jo and Ness all making the podium on Saturday at the Masters League! #crossfit #crossfit2600 #masters #keeprolling

Yen turned down a volleyball scholarship in her native Malaysia to focus on her studies and stay close to family, but after settling into her career in Canberra, she found an outlet for her competitive and athletic interests at CrossFit 2600.
I wanted to go to a box where the coaches could understand me as an athlete and able to help me perfect my strengths whilst improving my weaknesses. 2600 came very highly recommended by many I've spoken to and in my opinion, if an affiliate is able to send athletes to the regionals every year, they must be doing something right with programming.
Remember tomorrow at 10:10am we will cover what's involved for the REBOOT 2017. Training/nutrition/sleep/mobility and water are our focus areas. Get your squad together ready for 4 weeks of health and fitness. #crossfit #canberra #sleep #nutrition #training #water #mobility #adsisasleep #chalkiesguns
