Focus, determination, drive and a quest that ends on the podium was accomplished by CrossFit Rough’s head coaches (Amy Maddux and Kendra Fay) at the 2013 Fittest Games, CrossFit Central in Austin, TX. earlier this month.
Over the past year both athletes have been on missions to prepare themselves for this year’s season of CrossFit competition. The season will end with the Reebok CrossFit Games, where the Open starts in March. Their dedication has been nothing shy of amazing. These athletes train together, coach together and change lives within the community everyday. With no limitations set on themselves mentally or physically they both laid it all out and took 2nd place in both their divisions earlier this month.
Amy Maddux has been doing CrossFit for 3 years and a seasoned competitor. She’s a humble competitor always encouraging and supporting those around her.
I asked Amy before the competition how she felt, she said, “I’m just here to do what I do”. So focused and determined she fought to the end and took home 2nd place in the women’s masters division.
Kendra Fay a new mom and head coach at CrossFit Rough has been CrossFitting for a little over 2 years and has kicked it into high gear. Over the last year of training with Amy they have both focused on dialing in the technique and targeting their weaknesses. Kendra’s attention to detail, technique and ability to efficiently game a WOD has set her apart from others in her division. Kendra told me once “ we train hard at the box but we set PR’s in competition”. She did just that in this last completion by taking home 2nd place in the women’s amateur division.
CrossFit Rough is so proud of these exceptional athletes and coaches. This is just the beginning and these ladies along with the Rough Pack are on the prowl, so stay tuned for more amazing accomplishments because you will be hearing more about us!
