Check out how a few of our amazing individual MAD Athletes did in the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Open in the South Central Region. Pretty awesome!
Amanda Schwartz coaches at Premier CrossFit and continues to prove her amazing competitiveness and athletic ability in each workout. She finished the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Open in 2nd place in the South Central Region. A multiple year regional competitor, she is pushing it to the next level this year. Her tenacity and well rounded skills are a force to be reckoned with this year at regionals.
Nikki Isbell qualified and competed in the 2009 CrossFit Games in Aromas, Ca. The “Ranch” gave her a taste of competition she had never had and continues to pursue. She has earned invitations to every regional since but due to pregnancy and choosing to compete for the CrossFit Cedar Park team, this will be her first trip back to regionals as an individual. She garnered two 2nd place finishes for our region in this years open (13.1, 13.5). Nikki is our MADCAMP Nutrition specialist and an amazing coach! Looking forward to seeing her throw down at the individual level again.
Chase Ingraham, AKA Captain America is an amazing athlete and coaches at CrossFit Dallas Central He finished 12th in the region for an amazing start to his comeback year! Chase is a CrossFit Games veteran having qualified to compete at the Home Depot Center in 2010. Last year he was forced out of competition due to injury and he used MAD Training and Michael Tillman DPT, to help him return to top form. He is ready to avenge last year’s missed opportunity.
Blaine Springston is a Coach at CrossFit Centex and an amazing athlete. He finished 13.5 with 169 reps for first place in the South Central Region. He was 2nd Place for the triple crown and is looking to tear it up in San Antonio!
Carson Thomas has qualified for regionals again… Since 2010 Carson has qualified for regionals. He continues to level up and is getting stronger by the day! Can’t wait to see how he smashes this years wods.
There are many more MAD Athletes that leveled up this year from Team competitors to Masters Competitors to rookies. More on them in the next post! This has been a great year for MAD Athletes and it looks to be getting better and better!

MADCAMP II was so awesome I can barely put into words! Our goal was for everyone to leave with so much information overload that their heads were spinning, and maybe a few PRs. These amazing athletes of all levels from a newbie CrossFitter to a CrossFit Games athlete all leveled up their fitness. We brought in the experts…
Dr. Mike Tillman who emphasized that “tightness inhibits strength” as he showed us individual mobility patterns needed for each athlete.
Coach Nikki Isbell, CrossFit games athlete and competitive nutrition guru broke down the pre contest wod meal, post wod meal and every meal for every other day to a scientific calculation. She even told us when the evil dreaded sugar could turn athletes into super athletes.
Coach Wladi and Sammye Montoya dished out some super swim techniques and a great swim wod. The even gave a few newbies some much needed swim lessons and when they were done everyone swam in their swim wod. Smooth like a baby dolphin!
Newly added and newly voted “Best Run Coach in Austin” Valerie Hunt brought her Master Pose techniques and great enthusiasm to the camp. She put the video screen on every single athlete and every single athlete improved in their run technique. Yes, even the fastest ones!
Chad and Jodi Vaughn broke down the technical aspects of each Olympic lift and skill transfer exercises. They applied the movements to a lighter weight metcon as well as that 1 rep max. It was truly awesome.
I went over the programming and how to incorporate that strength into year round work as well as a few “secrets” to improving your core and overall strength. Plus I got to inflict some much needed pain on a few willing athletes. All in all we had a blast and everyone leveled up and learned a ton. Just in time for the CrossFit Season. Next MADCAMP will be in June. Keep checking in here and Facebook for tips and strategies on how to level up your fitness. Keep an eye on some of our MAD ATHLETES in the region also.
