A good Canadian boy
Hey team, as you likely know, the grand finale of the CrossFit season, the Reebok CrossFit Games, is only a month away. Out of all the competitors from around the globe, one of the front runners for a podium spot is Brent Fikowski, a Canadian who currently lives in the interior of BC.
Brent has a relatively long and eventful CrossFit career, from missing out on the Games two years in a row by very narrow margins, to finishing fourth in his very first CrossFit Games appearance.
There is a series on youtube right now that chronicles a bit of Brent's season of training, his outlook on CrossFit, and a bit of his rather mundane daily life! I've put the first video down below, episode 2 is also out now and they are a neat window into this elite athletes mindset and preparation.
