  1. Great job this weekend everyone! Everybody that competeed gave it everything they had in each and every event. I think Crossfit Murphy made a name for itself at Garage Games One. It was great to see the fight, determination, and competiveness demonstrated by people from our gym. Also, thank you so much for all the support we recieved. Thank you to the ones that made the trip to Woodstock to support and cheer us on, as well as to the ones who called and sent text messages of encouragement and support.

    Erik, as our trainer thank you for all that you do. I know you put a lot of time and effort into designing WOD’s that will challenge us and make us better each and every day and that showed this weekend. Crossfit Murphy athletes were able to compete with anyone out there. Through the workouts, encouragement, motivation and support you have made every person at the gym a stronger person not only physically but mentally as well.

    I love our Crossfit Murphy family. I don’t think any other Crossfit affiliate members in the world share the bond that the members of Crossfit Murphy share.

  2. As I stood there in Woodstock watching grown men and women play dodgeball in freezing weather and loving it I had to ask myself, how the heck did we get here? This was an awesome weekend! Crossfit Murphy certainly came to play. They competed against some of the fittest people on the earth and did not back down. I am exhausted from just walking around and watching our athletes but to see our guys and girls go to event after event and fight so hard was truly impressive. Matt, Ray, Zach, Erik, Ashley, Jenni, Penny, Amanda, Brooks and Leighton awesome job!

  3. Congratulations to all those who participated in this weekend’s Garage Games!! I am very proud to be part of such of a special group of people. CrossFit Murphy was represented well throughout the whole weekend. I watch and see throughout the CrossFit community amazing things that these dedicated athletes do to make wonder how they do these things so fast or so heavy. Those amazing athletes are you. You went into a huge event and proved yourselves with your performance. I was proud to see the endless effort and fight that everyone displayed. If you are not already aware, you are a part of a very special community. Every time I turned around throughout the weekend, I saw someone new from the box who drove to Woodstock to watch their friends perform. Every time I checked my phone, I had a missed call or a text message with some encouraging words or a check in to see how everyone was doing. As I walked to the car yesterday I asked someone “How did we end up here?”. Just a I, they had no idea why we spent two days in frigid weather watching people workout, but they did agree that they could imagine no other place they would rather be than with their best friends.

  4. The most impressive thing about this group is not their athleticism but their character. I was not surprised at all by the results….as individuals and as teams I knew the deck was stacked. Be proud of what you have accomplished.
