First things first, we’re only about a week away from the Canada West Regional’s and we are just a little bit excited!! The field, for both individuals and teams, is phenomenal this year and will be incredibly competitive. On top of that we’ll be at a Venue that is second to none… the @RichmondOval won’t know what hit it! We’re excited to be one of the sponsors of the event this year, joining the likes of great #CrossFit supporters like @FitnessTown, @Blonyx and @PurePharma to name a few. It’s a stretch for us as a new company but we couldn’t miss the opportunity to be there to support all of you who have shown such great support towards us over the last year; Thank you!
“..feel free to share it around as a tool to get the word out there and to invite people out to the Oval.”
Our biggest priority is doing what we can to help continue to move the sport of CrossFit, locally, into the spotlight. That being said, we have been doing whatever we can to invite friends, family, acquaintances and anyone who we find ourselves in conversation with to the Regional’s next weekend. In order to help you all do the same, we produced the banner at the top of this post and put it on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Please feel free to share it around as a tool to get the word out there and to invite people out to the Oval. Let’s use this last week to create a buzz that people, and media outlets, can’t ignore! Just imagine how awesome it will be on the final Sunday to have a full house yelling at all the athletes, pushing each of you to go beyond what you even thought you were capable of.
In the middle of all this excitement we’re planning on putting out some new gear that we hope will embody the spirit of the event and that you will all love. Some of you may have seen a pic we posted on Facebook this morning of our new Regional’s T’s. We wanted to put something together that would represent the journey all of the Athletes are on, as well as those of us who are hoping to get there one day! The final product has us really excited and we’d love to see everybody come by and grab one!
We’ve got some other great new gear for you guys as well, including a new Men’s and Women’s Hoodie, new Women’s Burnout Tanks in some great colours and an updated version of the Men’s Rx Hybrid Shorts. This leads me to one last item: the white unicorn of Rx gear. Yes… it’s the women’s shorts. They’ve been spoken of, but never seen; until now that is. It is with more than just excitement (whatever that is) that we are announcing the completion of our first pair of Women’s shorts. Made with the same great Flex-Sil fabric that everyone loves about the Men’s shorts, the Women’s version is incredibly comfortable. Fully equipped with a spandex gusset, four way stretch Flex-Sil material and a liner among other features. The first order of the shorts will be arriving around the beginning of June for the @SweatRXmag Sweat Rx Championships at @HybridAthletic but we will have a number of pairs available next weekend for you to see, touch, try on and pre-order. Custom Branding clients, rejoice… you can now let the women in your box know that we are ready to get them geared up as well. Each pair comes with an apology that they took so long! Here’s a quick sneak peak below.
Best of luck to all the athletes in your last week of training. We’re resting our voices so we can yell at you as loud as possible next weekend! Also, stay tuned next week to read about an exciting new contest we’ll be running during the weekend for those of you who stop by to purchase RX apparel. In the meantime, check out this awesome Twitter post from RX Athlete Steve Howell. KIDS: DON’T TRY THAT AT HOME:)
