2017 CrossFit Up Dog Summer Challenge Recap

01 Comment / CATEGORY: Uncategorized

Another year is in the books for the Salt Games and CrossFit Up Dog Summer Challenge.

We had so many great athletes participate this year, and it was inspiring to see how hard each team worked in every WOD. There were some amazing performances in all the divisions!

In total, we had 100 teams participate this year!

With that many teams, this event wouldn’t be possible without the support from our volunteers and sponsors. We often say it’s harder to volunteer than it is to compete. These guys busted their butts for two-straight days out in the heat. Our team here at CrossFit Up Dog can’t thank those people enough.

It’s only been a couple weeks, but who is ready for next year? We’ve got some exciting news coming your way for next year’s competition, so be on the lookout this fall for some AWESOME news.

See you at the beach in 2018!

  • Moving home and having to find a new box was nerve wrecking but everyone at CrossFit Up Dog welcomed me with open arms. The staff is amazing and the classes are always a challenge! Everyone is so motivating and fun to be around. I couldn't have picked a better box on the beach to be apart of!

  • I began at Crossfit Up Dog in November, 2013. Over the last 16 months I've lost 60 lbs, completely transformed my health, broken through physical barriers I never thought were possible and gained more new friends than I can count.
