Local woman performs well in global training competition

Every year CrossFit holds a competition to find the fittest man and fittest woman in the world. The 2014 season began on Feb. 27 with the worldwide CrossFit Games Open competition. Everyone in the world was invited to compete in five workouts over five weeks, posting their scores online. Last year 140,000 athletes competed in the open, and this year the number grew to 214,000 athletes.

This year, CrossFit Beaufort congratulates Heather Callender for her outstanding performance during this five week competition. Heather both eats and trains to perform, which definitely showed, as she placed 11th in the Southeast Region, and 100th in the world in the 40-44 year old female category. This category alone had more than 5,000 athletes competing not just in the U.S. but across the world.
