LOCO CROSSFIT TAKES FIRST PLACE AT CAPITAL AFFILIATE LEAGUE WINTER TOURNAMENT
LEESBURG - Saturday, February 22, 2014 –LoCo CrossFit of Leesburg takes first place in the Open Division at the Capital Affiliate League Winter Tournament held on Saturday, February 22. There were 13 teams from across Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland who spent the past six weeks competing for the coveted CrossFit prize. All competition led to Saturday’s Championship Tournament where the LoCo Kodiaks beat out every affiliate team in the Open Division competition. This is the most coveted regional prize in the world of CrossFit.
The LoCo Kodiaks walked away with the revolving Capital Affiliate Cup, cash and other sponsor prize packages. Team Kodiak participant Tito McNutt, avid Crossfitter and AP Psych and Economics Teacher and football coach at Tuscarora High School had this to say about the event. “It was a great win for our LoCo Crossfit team,” said McNutt. “The dedication was amazing--we were able to see great success throughout the tournament—all culminating with this amazing win.”
This was the first year LoCo CrossFit participated in the Capital Affiliate League tournament. It was a huge accomplishment for the box (gym) to walk away with the coveted first place finish.
LoCo CrossFit arrived onto the Leesburg fitness scene in September 2012 and remains the only CrossFit box (or gym) in Leesburg. The facility is located within the Virginia National Guard Armory at 41905 Loudoun Center Place. Since it’s opening, LoCo CrossFit has effected positive change on members who include veteran CrossFit athletes and first timers looking to change up their routine from the traditional gym experience. www.lococrossfit.com
