3...2....1...Carlos LIFT OFF!

The CrossFit Open is right around the corner, and what a better way to get into the competitive spirit then to participate in the CrossFit Lift Off. A great way to bring all of the fitness world together from CrossFitters to Olympic Weightlifters it gives the community a chance to get together throw around some big weight and have some fun doing so! One of our members in particular Carlos Santiago is someone who lives for moving some big weight on the barbell. He has participated in the CrossFit Lift Off the past two years and looks forward to it every year! We caught up with Carlos and asked him to give us a little insight into what the Lift Off means to him here in Chester and how he looks forward to it every year. 


“Last year the Liftoff was my first CrossFit competition. I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t know who else was going to participate as well, but I was so glad to see all the people that did come and participate, because at the end it was an incredibly fun and bonding experience. Ever since that day, I’ve kept those relationships close because of that bond from that day. Fast forward one year and when I heard the Liftoff was on again, I was super pumped and couldn’t wait to have another test to see how much I’ve improved from one year to the next. I had a lot of fun this year having an attempt at a do over from last year and my numbers weren’t what I expected them to be but that is the competitor in me. I can’t wait to do it again next year!” 


Everyone has something that they love doing each year and for Carlos it is the Lift Off. It doesn’t matter if you have just started lifting or if you are a veteran like Carlos, we encourage everyone to try it because it is a time for people to come together. Like Carlos said, “it is a fun, bonding experience”. When we talk about community this is what it is all about having fun, getting in shape and doing your best when you walk in the door. We can’t wait to see what Carlos and everyone else does come CrossFit Open time and the Lift Off next year! We couldn’t be more proud of Carlos and all of our members.
