W.O.D. 7.22.17


Finally, the event that all of you have been waiting for! The day has arrived and it is time to crown our newest King and Queen. 

This is by far, the most exciting event that is held each year and Jason, myself and the coaches could not be more excited. The King and Queen of Prussia will give many an opportunity to compete for the first time, it will give others a chance to see where they stack up, it will push all athletes to a new level, it will provide an atmosphere or camaraderie and friendship that defines what CrossFit King of Prussia is all about. If you are not competing, we strongly encourage you to stop by and cheer on your friends and support them during the day. 

 At the end of the event, we will celebrate in true CrossFit fashion with a "stink and drink" and catered lunch. Please feel free to bring some pot-luck fare and drinks too! See you there! 

 There is NO regular class today only the competition, regular class resumes on Sunday.

His favorite workouts included The Chief, DT and Lynne. Deem is survived by his wife, Jennifer; and children, Dakota, Tyler and Aubrey (due August 2017).

Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.

Good Luck Tim!


Coach Tim takes on his second full Ironman on July 23rd in Lake Placid!
Wish him well this week when you see him at the box!



Tim specializes in the shorter distances and really enjoys them - the Olympic and Sprint Triathlons. 

For the second time (since Arizona in 2012) Tim will take on The full Ironman -140.6 total miles; it's a tough mental game and excruciating distance for all three disciplines both leading up to and during the race.

He will Swim 2.4 Miles, Bike 112 Miles and Run 26.2 Miles

His goal is 11 hours or less. It will all come down to the run after the bike. He's gonna have to hold off just right on his power output on the bike to leave enough juice in his legs for a good, solid marathon in order to hit that goal.

Tim- CrossFit KOP is cheering for you---GOOD LUCK!
