AND THE WINNER IS….. STEPHEN WHITE!

The December Rowing Challenge was a huge success. We challenged our athletes to see who could row the most extra calories outside of warm ups and WODs. We had 50 members hop on their Concept 2 and accept the challenge. Blackbird CrossFit athletes rowed a combined 49,581 calories in a month! But there emerged a few distinct competitors coming out of the gate. As the month went on, it became a battle against two of our endurance fanatics…one of our CrossFit Teens, Stephen White, versus one of our Masters, Josh Meyers!

Stephen White is a sophomore at South Carroll High School. He’s a Varsity Soccer player and plays on the FC Frederick club team. Endurance is his game….he’ll run the 3.1 miles from his house to the gym for the workout and then run back home! His competitor, Josh Meyers, 42, is an avid cyclist and mountain biker. It has been a blast to watch these two duke it out on the rowers. Stephen pulled ahead during his holiday break and Josh decided to bow out gracefully. Stephen is the winner of a $25 gift card to www.wodoutlet.com and because of all of Josh’s hard earned, sweaty calories, we’re giving him a $15 gift card to too! Thank you to all of our members for your hard work and extra efforts!
