Hookd2Hops Competition at CrossFit Hook'd!

Our friends at CrossFit Hook'd are gearing up for their 2nd annual Hookd2Hops on September 24! CrossFit Hook'd has again partnered with Two Roads Brewery—an awesome local brewery in Stratford, CT—for this 4 person, co-ed team competition (2 guys, 2 girls). There are scaled and RX divisions, 3 guaranteed workouts with a 4th for top finishers, and free t-shirts and beer coupon for all registered athletes! 

We already have one team heading down to represent YCF so it would be great to have another team compete as well. This one will definitely be a fun comp! (Did we mention there will be beer?!)

The competition is also raising money for the Catch a Lift Fund, a great cause that enables post 9/11 combat wounded Veterans to regain and maintain their physical and mental health by providing granted gym memberships, fitness programs or in-home gym equipment, anywhere in the U.S. Click here for more information on the fund.

Jordan Banks
17-year-old Jordan Banks graduated from Bristol Central this past June and is set to play baseball at Southern Vermont College this Fall. He went from playing on the JV team to All-State in just one year and says taking CrossFit classes at Yankee CrossFit had a lot to do with that:
“Before, I couldn’t go as long [during games] and I’d get tired earlier. Now, I don’t get tired. I’m as strong at the beginning as I am at the end. CrossFit has helped me out with my flexibility. I play first base so you need to stretch to get balls. It made me quicker to the ball as a first baseman. I’m also able to hit the ball further because of CrossFit. I wouldn’t be working out [in the offseason] if it wasn’t for this. When it does start to hurt [during CrossFit workouts], it makes me push. I was used to giving up during practice—half assing it—but CrossFit teaches to you push through.”
