Food for Thought Friday – Moxie Madness 2015

This week’s blog post is a little different, it’s more informative for this weekend than anything, but hopefully it’ll result in some great community support.

This weekend we have two teams competing in a local Throwdown called Moxie Madness (

NOTE: Cróga will be CLOSED to encourage our community to attend and cheer our teams on.

For those that don’t know or weren’t around last year at this time, Moxie Madness is a team of 4 (2 men, 2 women) 2-day competition that is held each year on the East Fields of the stadium at San Jose State (Spartan Stadium).

There are 150 teams of 4, so there will be 600 athletes and a couple thousand spectators!

Some fun things that you can look forward to if you decide to attend (besides cheering on our teams) are:

vendor village with all the equipment and apparel you could imagine
multiple individual and team CrossFit Games athletes competing
a fun social atmosphere (our teams will have a couple pop-up tents and will be hanging out all day)
a beer garden for those 21+ that want to enjoy a cold brew while watching some fitness.
