This Week’s Open Athlete: Ernie Seigle 14.1


ERNIE14.1For some, the announcement of the 14.1 Open Workout brought a small heartbreak: double unders prove to be extraordinarily difficult — and seemingly impossible — for many athletes.


However, for Ernie,  a new crossfitter still struggling to make the rope twice around, this presented a challenge. Instead of being discouraged, he took 14.1 as an opportunity to overcome this particular goat, and managed to finish two full rounds and get into his third round.


Ernie is proof that anyone can participate in the CrossFit Open. Anyone, that is, who has a positive attitude and who is unafraid to meet a challenge head on. Photo credit: Richard Veytsman Photography
