We have always had an emphasis on CrossFit-as-Sport at FRCF. We affiliated with CrossFit in April 2006 and started to put together our concept of a Team. We trained together and competed together. We ran our own events to get experience.
When we read about the 2007 CrossFit Games, we all knew that we had to compete in it the next year.
In 2008, FRCF sent 14 athletes to the CrossFit Games. Our best male athlete took 8th. Our best female athlete took 15th. It wasn’t just the placements that were important that year, we went out there to compete together as a “Team” and we all had an amazing time.
The FRCF CrossFit Competition Team was born from the experience we all had at the 2008 CrossFit Games. We knew there was no turning back. The Sport of CrossFit was just too much fun. FRCF has qualified athletes to the Games every year from 2008 – 2016.
30 DIFFERENT FRCF ATHLETES HAVE COMPETED AT THE CROSSFIT GAMES

If you are looking at CrossFit as a sport, you need three things to be successful.
- A motivated athlete
- A great training environment
- Quality Coaching
There are exceptions to every rule. But without the presence of all three of those factors, you will not be successful in the Sport of CrossFit. Or really, any sport.
If you are serious about competing at CrossFit, look at the RESULTS of every gym that you are considering. Look at the Coach’s record that you will be working with. What has that Coach enabled his/her athletes to accomplish? The answer to that question is the only thing that ACTUALLY matters to you as an athlete. The rest is just conjecture. And we all know what that is worth.
Experience and results speak another language all together.
At FRCF, we produce great results. We will take you from where you are today, to wherever your dedication and motivation will allow you to go.
