Go Joey

 {Joey at the CrossFit Games 2010}


Tomorrow is a big day for my boyfriend and my CrossFit family--it's the start of the CrossFit Regionals here in the Bay Area. I'm posting about this because it plays such a big role in our life. My boyfriend Joey has competed in the CrossFit games for the last two years. Last year he came in 13th in the world. Every year it gets harder and more competitive and this weekend they will only take the top 3 men from Northern California (a very competitive region).

Joey is a dedicated and driven athlete. I've never met anyone more disciplined. He inspires me every day with his grueling workout schedules, strict diet and mental toughness (check out an article about this here). This weekend I will be by his side cheering on his every move. No matter what the outcome I couldn't be more proud of him.

After this weekend we're taking a mini vacation to relax and spend time with friends. I'll be posting next week but will be slightly out of touch. With Glitter Guide launching June 14th I will be working a lot while I'm gone. However, a change of scenery will be nice for us after a stressful last few months.

Go Joey!!

Good luck to him! Man, he is so ripped! That would definitely spur me to do a few extra push ups everyday. Well, maybe...

Go Joey! I think I have friends competing in the Nor Cal region as well. Wishing him the best, and thanks for the extra kick in the butt to get me to work out today!

My friend in LA is so into CrossFit and I want to try it but I'm secretly terrified because I know how for real it is. Best of luck to Joey!

My boyfriend and I both do CrossFit and I've told him about your blog before, so I mentioned that you had this post today and he asked who your boyfriend was. When I said Joey? He said, I bet its Joey Warren! Looks like he was right! He knows of him through OPT. Good luck to him! Hope he kicks some ass. Our regionals are next weekend. Can't wait to watch the badasses!

@Lauren that is so cool! What is your boyfriend's name? We wish him good luck!! So cool!

Lauren {Stylized Existence} said...

Taylor - I commented back on my blog, too, but his name is also Joey! Joe Lucas... he was supposed to be on our affiliate team (CF Nasti) because he missed qualifying as an individual by a few spots but has a shoulder injury and can't do any of the day 1 workouts... so I think he is going to have to sit this year out :( I am confident he will be there next year though. Our men are pretty inspiring, aren't they!?

Taylor Sterling said...

Totally! We're going to look you guys up tonight! :) Thanks for letting us know! Have a blast!

Go Joey! Go Joey! I actually ran across a CrossFit gym finally, not to far from me. I practically swerved my car into from shock and then yelled incoherently in the car from excitement to my passengers, "Sterling Style! Sterling Style! We have to try that."

Way to go to your bf for getting this far. I read the article and it was inspiring to see someone really dedicated to that lifestyle and that focus. Hope he makes it (he deserves to!!) and that you guys have a nice relaxing vacation after :)

How crazy! My brother co-owns a company called Rogue Fitness and was just out there for the Regionals (the only reason I knew they existed). Congrats to your boyfriend!
