Cross-fitters are a tight and active community–they strive for good health and know when to push themselves to the limits for a good cause. So it’s no surprise that 72 teams gathered at Central Bucks Crossfit in Warminster on Saturday, April 1st to dig deep and make a difference in the lives of children with autism at The Comprehensive Learning Center.
The challenge was simple: Smash the WODs (workout of the day) and raise as much money as possible! Competitors endured high-intensity exercise for 20 minutes completing As Many Reps As Possible (AMRAP). Despite bruised shins, sore muscles and ripped-up hands, determination was the WOD (“word” of the day) for mastering the rowing, deadlifts, air squats and box jumps to raise funds for CLC’s exceptional programs.
Kudos to all competitors, volunteers, and donors who helped make this the most successful AMRAP 4 Autism to date, raising over $10,000. Special thanks go out to Mike & Kathy Weidner, at Central Bucks Crossfit for donating the “box” and running another well-buffed event, and sponsors MB Stix and Lifting Culture Apparel.
This year’s winners for the Male/Male Advanced: Nathan Trimmer and Bryan Garlick; Female/Female Advanced: Jess Sims and Gaylemarie Kolb; and Intermediate: Aidan Feeney and Patrick McCabe.
