Cat Snatch Fever: A CrossFit Love Story



Video by Lindsay and Elliot Schrock. Growing up, Cat Panetta never felt like the “cool kid” and was often reminded by others that “Cat rhymes with fat.” Cat admits he had a happy, healthy childhood and family life but struggled with his relationship with food. He ended up yo-yo dieting and lost weight at times, but he never quite found a balance and always felt out of control. During one of his many trips to Hawaii, Cat was convinced by a neighbor that he should check out a free CrossFit class at the small box CrossFit Ko’Olau. The welcoming environment and the instructors’ knowledge of fitness impressed Cat, but when he moved to British Columbia, he relied on food to help him adjust. He reached a max weight of 330 lb. at 27. Wanting to finally make health and fitness a lifestyle and help others do the same, Cat pushed himself to attend a CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course and become a coach at CrossFit Otter Point in Sooke, B.C. Cat, who is also a photographer, believes that CrossFit is “all things that make me into the person I’ve always wanted to become.” He reminds us all that it never gets easier. We just get stronger over time—and personal growth comes from experiencing hardship. The CrossFit Journal — (http://journal.crossfit.com) The CrossFit Games® – The Sport of Fitness™

Skyline CrossFit After Hurricane Harvey



Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 19 trillion gallons of water on the state of Texas and looks to be one of the most damaging natural disaster in U.S. history. The impact was far reaching and included many CrossFit affiliates. People from all over the world rallied to support those in need. The hurricane brought many together, and in the CrossFit community, the strong showed that they are even stronger when united for a common cause. During Week 3 of the Open, Skyline CrossFit played host to the live announcement of 18.3, and the community got an up-close look at Houston and the surrounding area’s progress toward recovery. "I don't think you fully realize how powerful and how tight-knit the community is until times of crisis like this," said Aja Barto, former Games athlete and owner of CrossFit Behemoth in Cypress, Texas. "When the community just kinda rushes in at a moment’s notice to kinda take care of the problem, all that shared suffering in the CrossFit gym gets displayed in a different way," said Dan Bailey, five-time CrossFit Games athlete.

Road to the Games Ep. 18.02: Kara & Tia—The Aussie Chickies



Video by Heber Cannon, Mariah Rose Moore, Marston Sawyers The second episode of this year’s series checks in with reigning Fittest Woman on Earth Tia-Clair Toomey and her toughest competition, fellow Aussie Kara Saunders, in the fall months following the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games. Get a look at the construction of CrossFit Kova, Saunders’ new affiliate in Brisbane, and see what both athletes do to relax and unwind during the offseason. Toomey and her husband, Shane Orr, go crocodile spotting while on a trail run and do other very Australian things, such as racing kangaroos through residential areas. This episode also offers Aussie vocabulary lessons. After the 2017 Invitational, Saunders taught us the word “shoey,” and in 2018, Toomey explains what Aussies mean when they say “woop woop.” But it’s not all fun and games, and both athletes keep their minds focused on the competition. Toomey reflects on the previous seasons and says the biggest changes in her performance between 2016 and 2017 came from her mindset. “When it comes to the CrossFit Games, it’s all mental,” she explains. If that adage proves true for Saunders, too, 2018 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Games spectators. “For the first time ever, I believe in myself properly, and no matter what happens, it’ll be a good year as long as I can keep my head on straight,” Saunders says.
