Yesterday crossfitters around the country participated in Fight Gone Bad. In south Louisiana, Lance and Erin King, owners of Red Stick Crossfit put on an event to be remembered. Set Louisiana Memorial Park in the shadow of the U.S.S. Kidd, it was a fitting location for this charity event.
Crossfitters from all over Louisiana and Texas put in their 17 minutes of hell to raise money for three worthwhile charities including games competitor Aja Barto who put 440 on the board.

Lance and Erin brought this event from thirty participants last year to over 200 this year and included a color guard ceremony, weightlifting demo by Gayle Hatch’s crew including Kendrick Farris, gift presentation to a wounded veteran and lot’s more!

Lance and his fellow firemen even went the extra mile, performing the brutal workout in fireman’s gear with weight vests, My hat’s off to you Lance. It was a hot one out there!
This event was a huge success involving charity, community and competition. Knowing Lance and Erin, it will only be bigger and better next year!
