ReCap : IMCF Rocks the Throwdown at the Yard

Team IMCF featured three athletes (featured from left to right : Carlos Zayas, Charles Slider, and Allie Scott) competing this weekend in the "Throw down at the Yard" at River Market CrossFit on 12-13 April. 

All three finished in the Top 25 among a regional collection of stellar athletes. This event featured two time cap events, a 15 min triplet, a thruster ladder and two tested events on balance and accuracy rounding out for a total of six WODS. Our group enjoyed the event as well as the atmosphere of community during the two day event. The following is a synopsis of the weekend and some key takeaways from our athletes.

-Facilities and Equipment- I gained a greater appreciation of the bubble's facilities and the space afforded to athletes. I take for granted the space and equipment that the bubble provides and now understand the constraints of other boxes.

-Programming- This weekend was a great gauge in terms of figuring out where our programming sits in terms of quality. With the recent addition of Strength to our normal programming, all three of us were able to maintain a pace that enabled us to finish strong in all events. With some minor tweaking, I believe our models work and will continue to fill in gaps where needed.

Overall, this was a great event to attend and we enjoyed not only the competition, but the support from the IMCF community and athletes from around the region.

It was a cool event. The Yard box really did a great job with coordination and running the schedule. My only take away was the quality of the judges - as well as their pa system. Charles and I used the event as an opportunity to point out points of performance & grading criteria and coaching tips to correct a movement.

It was a great time. Thanks to the Slider and Zayas Family for making it more fun. And thanks to Ryan Kelly & his son Pierce and the Friend Family for coming to cheer us on! Thanks IMCF.
