Bert’s Barbell Adventure was a Crossfit competition to benefit Bert’s Big Adventure on Sunday, December 4th. The competition, hosted by Crossfit Etowah in Woodstock, was a day of heavy weights, lots of cheering and some holiday fun! Blake McDonald and Jeff Rice are head coaches at Crossfit Etowah and have been volunteers for Bert’s Big Adventure for years!
The competition was an all-day event that consisted of three workouts and a championship workout for those that made it to the top four in each division. This was a team competition in which teams of three worked together to complete the workouts. A total of 36 teams participated in the event and the athletes worked extremely hard and gave it their all. The teams even had some of the Bert’s Big Adventure families show up to cheer them on!
