Southington, CT- This past weekend the competition team from Big Red CrossFit competed at their first competition of the season. The Forge Functional Fitness Competition was a 3 event competition held at the Forge Fitness in Southington, CT. Big Red had a total of 5 teams competing on Saturday and they were the following: Tyler Wakefield & Becca Rutkiewicz, Nick Anagnost & Nico Treglia, Nicole Maseroni & Christina Magliocco, Pietrina Daly & Lauren Macolino, and Erin Zaremba & Maureen Lewis.
Two of Big Red’s teams placed a spot in the top three of the Rx division. Nick Anagnost & Nico Treglia took home the top of the podium followed by Tyler Wakefield & Becca Rutkiewicz taking the second-place position. There were few cool moments that happened at this event including two new personal bests in their deadlift with Becca Rutkiewicz breaking the 300-pound mark, and Lauren Macolino adding 30 pounds to her new total of 195 pounds. The team of Lauren Macolino and Pietrina Daly were awarded the “Spirit of the Games” award giving to a team that over came some sort of adversity during the competition they persevered through the final event where some teams might have given up, but they powered through and gave it their all till the very end.
It overall was a good competition that provided a great test to many athletes and Big Red CrossFit is now ready for the rest of their competition season.
