There is going to be bad weather, your judge is going to miscount your reps, the workout is going to hurt, your equipment is going to fail.  Expect it...and overcome it.

Congrats to everyone that qualified for Regionals this year!

I am very proud of the community we have built on this site over the last 2 years and the 200-ish(!!!) athletes that will be moving on to the next round. 

I am honored that so many great athletes and people have come to this site.  
As a thank you, I would like to send EVERYONE that qualified for Regionals a free 
Regionals "Built By Bergeron" CompTrain shirt.
(In the next few weeks we will be rebranding Competitorswod.com as CompetitorsTraining.com)

These shirt will not be for sale - the are just for the athletes that qualified.  
I hope you guys represent the CompTrain by wearing these shirts at Regionals. 
I am hoping the new CompTrain Site will have a place that anyone can buy a shirt. 

If you follow this site, qualified for regionals, and would like a shirt, please email Ali@Crossfitnewengland.com
