2019 CrossFit Games

As the CrossFit games are quickly approaching, we wanted to remind everyone that now six-time CrossFit Games competitor and Sporturf athlete Scott Panchik has qualified again and will be competing!

Panchik, a five-time individual CrossFit Games veteran, has qualified for every CrossFit Games since 2012.  He took back-to-back fourth-place finishes in 2012 and 2013, missing the podium by just one place each year. Victor of the 2015 and 2016 Central Regionals, Panchik is known for his mental fortitude, always believing he can win while remaining unruffled by setbacks. A collegiate running back, Panchik owns CrossFit Mentality in Mentor, Ohio.

In 2018, Panchik partnered with Sporturf to add Combat Turf to his gym.  The idea was to create a truly multifunctional space that would allow all Crossfit type movements to be performed indoors.  Combat Turf truly created an all-purpose functional fitness space.

The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its launch in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes.

The Games were created to fill a void—no other true test of fitness like this has existed. From Ironman triathlons to the NFL, all other athletic events neglected to accurately test fitness. Even decathlons, while testing a relatively wide range of abilities, missed vital components of physical fitness.

Make no mistake—the CrossFit Games are designed to test, not train, fitness. The goal is to find the fittest athletes, not to produce an easily replicable workout program.

We at Sporturf would like to wish Scott the best of luck next week!
