1st Competition of the Year!

Our 1st competition of the year for Vision CrossFit is in the books.  We had the 7 teams compete in the Granite Games Throwdown on Saturday, January 12th hosted by our partners at Snake River CrossFit in Nampa.  So very proud of these kids!  They were mostly competing against adults, as they were some of the only teens in the competition.  They held their own for sure!  Areas for improvement include: The heavy barbell, but as we know strength takes time and you don't want to rush it with teens, who are still developing.  Their work capacity and their ability to recover between workouts was amazing and this was definitely an area of strength.  We have an Olympic Weightlifting Meet coming up January 26th at Crown Performance in Garden City. We will feature our first ever 3 lifters as part of the newly formed Vision Weightlifting Club which is now an official member of USA Weightlifting.  We are also looking forward to several students competing in the 2019 CrossFit Games OPEN starting in February.  Lot's going on here at Vision.  I will do my best to offer more updates here on our website as we continue to grow, thrive, and influence young people to pursue health.        -Coach George
