This is the Crossfit 915 Competition Team.
The term “Sport of Fitness” was coined by the founder of CrossFit, Coach Greg Glassman, after discovering the competitiveness and intensity found in his athletes when performing the workout of the day. To hone in this competitiveness, Glassman created benchmark WODs and events by which athletes could compare themselves against one another. Among these events would be the CrossFit Games.
Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes. While these events can be watched on a national level on ESPN, the competitive aspect of CrossFit can also be experienced in more localized competitions, regional qualifying events, and everyday training.
In CrossFit 915 Sport our workouts resemble competitive events, and in our proving ground no one wants to finish last. For this reason a person will push themselves to the limit each and every workout. It is this level of intensity that produces amazing athletic results in a short period of time. CrossFit 915 was the proud host of the 2012 Southwest Fitness Throwdown III, where our athletes competed and excelled across a variety of divisions. We also travel to compete in CrossFit competitions throughout Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and further.
