CrossFit Bridal Shower
Nicole & Joey’s CrossFit Bridal Shower
May 29, 2009
I don’t know if there’s ever been a CrossFit Bridal Shower before or not but it was definitely a unique event.
Nicole Elgin and her fiance, Joey Lynch will tie the knot on June 20, 2009 in Atlanta Georiga. Nicole has been training hard at CrossFit Jaguar since November 2008 in preparation for being one buff bride on her special day. So far she has lost over 20 pounds, packed on some lean muscle and is handling the pre wedding stress incredibly well. We’ve only had to put her in “time out” once. LOL. No secret to how she did this; busted her ass in the gym 5 to 6 days a week and radically changed her nutrition.
CrossFitting friends of the bride and groom got together along with family to celebrate. We kicked it off with what else but a CrossFit Jaguar workout! Bride’s Beasts teamed against Groom’s Beasts for a push-ups and pull ups competition. We then squared off for a 50 M tire drag and collectively finished the workout with 6 100 M sprints on the minute.
RESULTS: The She Beasts beat the He Beasts in the push ups and pull ups. Only fair to mention the there were 10 She Beasts to 6 He Beasts. When it comes to a battle between the sexes it’s not always fair! The He Beasts smoked the She Beasts in the tire drag with the exception of the bride and groom to be; they were neck and neck in the last 20 M when Joey’s harness broke. I say a rematch is in order?
The sprints were the finisher and we then enjoyed grilled whole birds, a delicious green salad with walnuts and bleu cheese, corn on the cob (yes, that is a grain, it was post workout though) and libations were permitted in moderation in lieu of the special event.
Check out the photos in the Gallery and best wishes to Joey & Nicole–couples that train together, stay together!
