February 2016 Meet Recap

On Saturday, February 6th, 10 Aevitas Weightlifters met with 4 weightlifters from throughout the Capital Region to compete in the first open Meet at CrossFit Aevitas. Of the 14 lifters who competed, half achieved PRs on the competition platform! Lifters and spectators learned a little bit about the sport of Olympic Weightlifting and the general format and rules of Weightlifting meets. Of course, everyone had a great time to boot!

On April 16th, the Aevitas Weightlifters will be at it again! Come to compete, to learn about the sport and our Aevitas Weightlifting Team program, to volunteer, or to just have fun and be inspired!
