Fitness Elevated 2013 Wrap-Up

photo-1

Another year is in the books!  This year’s Fitness Elevated had common theme running through it:  Carry!  Athletes carried logs, atlas stones, buckets of bricks, and sandbags along with snatching, cleaning, and a combine event designed to find the fittest in Utah.  In the end no weakness was left untouched and well rounded athletes persevered.  You can view all the scores at WODRocket on your mobile device using this link:  FE2013 wodRocket

Mandi Janowitz lead wire to wire in the final event capping off a dominant performance in which she finished out of the top only twice and outright won over half of the events.  Perhaps the most impressive was in the final “The Dos” where along with 16 year old phenom Jessie Bradley she was the only athlete to finish under the time cap.  Also impressive were fellow Hack’s Pack member Mary Lampas and 3rd place Dana Howell, both of whom never placed lower than 8th in an event.

For the Elite men Brennan Fjord backed up the hype winning his division by over 20 points.  The battle for 2nd and 3rd was fierce between CrossFit Miner’s town owner Michael Lynch and a familiar face on local podiums, Chase Heywood from CrossFit the Club.  Despite finishing 15th on the final event Lynch held on to edge out Heywood by just one point for 2nd place.  Also impressive was newcomer Matthew Aiken who lifted 245lbs on the snatch complex, won the Hack Attack, and finished 3rd on both finals.

The Open women was capped off by a gutsy performance by the mother of 4 month old baby, Ashely Doxstader of CrossFit 22.  Ashley crushed both the run and row event and also won the Hack Attack and snatch complex.  She wrapped up the competition by accepting her trophy with one arm while holding her newborn in the other.  Lindsay Jorgensen, a former Weber State soccer player and Wasatch CrossFit athlete, came in 2nd by consistently performing while placing top 3 in just one event, the last last final workout.  Jamie Hansen of Brickwall CrossFit edged out teammate Jessica Taverna by one point to secure the final podium spot.

The Open men’s field was wide open.  The top 3 athletes only two top 3 finishes in the individual events but in a competition that punished weakness the specialists were exposed and made to suffer for lacking engines, strength, or lifting ability and the well rounded athletes seized the day.  Brickwall CrossFit training partners Kody Frank and John Butler secured first and second on the podium while brother’s from another mother Drew Rykert and Christian Rodee represented CF Saratoga Springs with 3rd and 4th place finishes.

The Master field impressed as they lifted the same loads the Open athletes did, much of the time doing it faster.  Arther Erickson won again with a string of 1st place finishes.  Kelvin Minefee crushed Saturday finishing 1st or 2nd in every event other than the 5K run.  The Master’s women competition was tight and after 10 events only 7 points separated 1st from 3rd place.  Natalie Peterson won top honors battling it out with 2nd place finisher Annie Fowler, they accumulated 10 top two finishes between the two of them.  Kathy Stout of Wasatch CrossFit showed why she belonged in the finals winning 1st and 2nd place on the Uno and Dos.

Thank you to all of our volunteers, judges, and the athletes for another great year.  I’m sorry about the sound system, I should have checked it and that won’t happen again.  Last of all, here’s our vision for next year:  Fitness Elevated will be the largest competition in the SouthWest with over 420 athletes including a Games athlete team division and prize money for every category.  Fitness Elevated 2014 will take place over 3 days and will crown not just the fittest in Utah but the best in the Southwest.  See you next year!

Volunteer Schedule & Change Requests

VolunteerScheduleFE2013AsOfThurs4pm

Thank you so damn much for volunteering!  This event could not happen without you.  Many of you have emailed or texted me changes in the last few days.  Unfortunately I can’t keep up with them coming in via text, email, Facebook, and carrier pigeon so if you see something up here that doesn’t work for you please use the form below to submit the change.  We could use a few more volunteers for the 5K run on Saturday morning, please let us know if you’re available or know someone who is.  Last but not least, we should be good to go for t-shirts for volunteers but people volunteering 8 hours will get priority.
