From 8 am until 7 pm on Saturday, Crossfit athletes from across the Midwest competed in the first annual MAT Games at Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines, hosted by the gym Crossfit 8035.
Whether or not you recognize Crossfit terms like WOD, snatch, clean, jerk, pistol, or abbreviations like T2B, K2B, or DU, there was no doubting that the MAT Games participants were performing at high levels of strength, form, and stamina throughout their three grueling workouts.
Many athletes stopped by Dr. LoRang’s station next to the Athlete Village for soft tissue treatments like Graston, Active Release Technique (ART), and McKenzie. Whether as preventative or therapeutic, these treatments are all about improving athletic performance and everyday functionality.
Congrats to the organizers and Crossfitters at this year’s MAT Games. Well done!
