Each year at the CrossFit Games, they honor someone with the Spirit of the Games award. This honor goes to the ‘athlete who embodies the spirit of the sport.’
Each week during the 2015 CrossFit Open, No Excuses CrossFit will recognize a member it feels represented the Spirit of the Games. This week’s honor goes to …
Josef Roberts had never attempted a muscle up in his brief 6-month CrossFit career. So when then the gymnastics movement showed up in 15.3, he wanted to give it a try. After practicing a few drills and techniques, Josef got his first muscle up during the Open. He then added three more during the 14-minute WOD.
Josef’s willingness to go outside his comfort zone and try new things is what CrossFit is all about. The self-proclaimed lover of burpees has put in a lot of emphasis on improving all aspects of his health and fitness and it has paid off.
Congratulations Josef! We are very proud of you!!
