As most of you have already heard, CrossFit Rochester placed 6th overall out of 740 gyms in the nationwide Lurong Paleo Challenge. This marks the second year in a row that we’ve place in the top 10! We had 35 members participate this year. With Julie seemingly a bit pre-occupied this go-round, our success speaks volumes about our ability to co everyone’s individual commitment. In addition to the improvements of body composition, energy, and workout scores, the Lurongers earned the title of top gym in the Northeast. The gym will be getting four new barbells, 1,000lbs of bumper plates, and a bunch of other cool prizes. Congratulations to all of our awesome Lurongers: your commitment to the challenge is indicative of what a supportive and dedicated community we have at our gym.
We’d also like to congratulate our across-town neighbors Flower City CrossFit for an amazing performance in this year’s challenge: they took first place overall! Based on those stats, I’d say Rochester is a pretty good place to be a paleo athlete!
