The 2015 #crossfitgames is over and done with. Our athletes are on their way home or are taking a few days to decompress before heading back to their "normal" lives :-) All in all this has been one hell of a year. So many learnings and so many wonderful experiences. We are a young gym and a young team, and this year has laid a strong foundation upon which we can build. We will come back next year stronger, fitter and more well-prepared. Thanks to all who have helped, supported and witnessed. We could not have done it without you. And here's to the team, one last time! 25th fittest team in the world. 2nd fittest team in the South Region. Fittest team in Texas. #CrossFitJääkarhu #PERHE #CrossFit
