"We have a unique opportunity this year with a solid team with a lot of depth and no holes."
Two weeks before they’ll compete at the North West Regional, CrossFit Intensify grinds their way through team Event 4. They set up behind their box in a strip mall in Springfield, Ore., while other athletes at the box run past in the middle of a Saturday morning workout. Caitlin Ritchey pushes through the front squats as coach and CFI owner Zach Smith counts reps. CFI athletes yell words of encouragement to their team. Ritchie and Christina Sloyer run inside to do pull-ups while teammates Colin Schoonover and Ben Stoneberg hold the bar.
