January/February 2014

Getting fit may be the reigning champion of popular New Year's resolutions, but in Vancouver USA, regular exercise and healthy food practices take priority 365 days a year. With year-round sports facilities and a Pacific Northwest born and bred commitment to outdoor recreation, it should come as no surprise that events that push fitness to the extreme call Vancouver home all months out of the year.

The CrossFit Fort Vancouver Invitational, a competition for the Northwest's most elite athletes, is one such event and will storm the Clark County Event Center Jan. 11-12 with a series of aerobic exercises, gymnastics, and Olympic weight lifting. Competitors include Rory Zambard (ranked #14 in the world) and Jenn Jones (ranked 6th fittest woman on the planet).

For those attending the competition, visit the Vancouver USA Regional Sports Commission on Facebook and Twitter to post your photos, share comments and relay your athletic stories.
