On Saturday, August 26th, NC Open Gym hosted its spiciest competition yet - Smokeshow. This hour-long gauntlet event challenged partners to complete two metcons and a max complex lift. With the mercury rising outside, participants brought the fire inside our box.

The morning kicked off at 8am with the first heat. Over the next few hours, teams took on either the scaled or Rx workouts that included double unders, dumbbell snatches, burpee box jump overs, toes to bar, and bar muscle ups for the Rx athletes. Despite the heat and intensity of the workouts, athletes made a great effort to push through and spend a morning of friendly competition.

It was inspiring to see the community come together to motivate one another.

In all, it was a smokin’ hot day at NC Open Gym. Huge shoutout to all the athletes who pushed themselves and supported their teammates. Smokeshow was a spicy success!
