As the 2017 CrossFit Games get underway in Madison, Wis., teams from around the world are looking to put their names in the record books. We’re proud Wodify Core is the gym software of choice for so many awesome teams and boxes that qualified for the 2017 Games. Here’s a look at just a few:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re familiar with Team CrossFit Mayhem Freedom out of Cookeville, Tenn. They’re the defending team champions, having won the title in both 2015 and 2016. Their most well-known member, Rich Froning Jr., is the owner of CrossFit Mayhem and a four-time Individual CrossFit Games champion.
12 Labours CrossFit is no stranger to the Games. Hailing from Columbia, Md., Team 12 Labours Lions earned second place during last year’s team competition behind CrossFit Mayhem. They qualified for the Games four times, finished in the top ten on three occasions and have been training together as a team since 2010.
Team OC3 Black from Davenport, Iowa, finished in fifth place during the 2016 CrossFit Games and were last year’s rookie standouts. Although the group itself was new, many of their members had competed on various teams since 2012, gaining hard-earned reps along the way. Plus — they tied for first place in the CrossFit Open — so their fifth place finish can’t be seen as a shock.
Hailing from St. Paul, Minn., Team Timberwolf is another group to keep your eyes on. They placed fourth during their rookie year in 2014 after winning two events outright. Last year, they qualified for the CrossFit Games Team competition and earned 26th place. Team Timberwolf is training hard and keeping their performance at peak levels to once again place high atop the 2017 leaderboard.
