Hey Fringers, it's Peter here again and the sale for this week is garage gym packages. Up to 20% off.
Already mentioned many times how you know, I've got a really nice garage gym and I really feel that that's what we're doing here at Fringe is leading the garage gym revolution. Helping people build really awesome gyms in their garage. You know many of those people are affiliates in boxes and their garage just happens to be very big.
But anyways, as you can tell I'm driving as I record this. I'm actually on route from Madison, Wisconsin where the Crossfit Games are being held back to Chicago where I've gotta catch a flight to Beijing. So it's Saturday morning and I left the games last night after just spending a few hours there. But it was a really interesting experience. I've been to the games for the past few year in L.A. and I kind of got use to the games being in L.A. for better and for worse.
I actually am about to catch this flight to Beijing and gonna be working on some new bumper plates, the unkillable med ball. Still those lifting shoes, some new barbells. Lot of other interesting stuff that'll be coming down the pipe from us.
But... I couldn't miss coming out to Madison and figuring out what was going on with the games this year. And I'll give you my real quick hits. I'm sure I'll be back next year. Hopefully be able to spend a little more time than just a few hours at the games.
So moving off of just kind of feedback that I was hearing from people and kind of things that I was seeing, I do think Madison is a way better city than L.A. if the desire is to blanket the city with Crossfitters. So I went to this really great restaurant called Graze and actually I went there for lunch and then I liked it so much, went back there for dinner. And at lunch, the people at the table next to me were not Crossfitters, and they were complaining about all the Crossfitters in town. And how it was messing up their traffic or doing this or that. And I also heard some people complaining online about how Whole Foods in Madison was just like swamped and sold out of a ton of bone broth and kale and you know all the stereotypical things that you might talk about. I actually think that those interactions are a really good sign and they show that Madison is a better city than L.A. let's say because I don't think anybody in L.A. would be like,
The city's just too big and nobody cares. Whereas Madison, it's small enough that it's really an impact and we really take over the city.
I think back to when I ran the Chicago marathon a decade ago. When I was in Chicago, there were signs everywhere for the marathon even though the number of people running the marathon was like 40,000 or something like that. You know, I don't know what the population of Chicago is but quite a few million in any case. But the city seemed really proud of the marathon that weekend. And that's what Madison just yesterday reminded me of. It's like a city that was proud to host the CrossFit games. You'd be driving or walking around and you just see a random Crossfit game sign, or a hotel that had put up pictures in its windows, like very large pictures of people doing handstand walks or doing battle ropes or something like that. And that was really cool and I didn't see that in L.A. So it's a lot of fun.
I wanna throw in a few things.
But, let me see who else I talked with that I had a really, you know, great interaction with. Few other people kind of here and there. But you know that was pretty much what it is.
So... back to... The games. Seems like a really interesting venue. I think that they're gonna iron a few things out for next year. Weather, what're you gonna do about the weather? I mean it is what it is. I do think that the selection of WODs or exercises was pretty interesting this year including some cyclo-cross and a few things that are actually, you know I would argue being a biker, a cyclist myself, I would argue that there is a fair bit of sport specific training required to be a really excellent biker or even to be really fast on a bike and not just this like raw capacity. But that's, I think that's super interesting. And then like I mentioned, I am off to Beijing to work on a number of new products that we've got coming down the pipe. Been traveling a lot lately. Little bit of looking in the mirror. A lot of it's, sorry not complaining about that at all. But little bit of looking in the mirror at you know how much I'm on the road. And it's kind of funny.
