ATHLETES from a CrossFit gym battled it out for the chance to be crowned seasonal champions at a prestigious competition.

Teams from CrossFit All Out, in Newton Aycliffe, recently competed in The Glacier Games, in Gateshead.

The gym had four teams of two competing in the tournament and plenty of supporters attending the day.

CrossFit All Out is based at Aycliffe Business Park and managed by husband and wife team Terry and Vikki Anderson.

Gym owner and head coach Terry Anderson said: "This was another great event in Gateshead which members enjoyed as both participants and supporters.

"The commitment from these athletes to continue competing outside, in heavy rain is impressive and shows the kind of character that it takes to truly enjoy the sport of CrossFit, no matter what obstacles arise.

"Credit to those who jumped in last minute to replace members that couldn’t compete. We had some fantastic results on the day and are proud of everyone who took part."

CrossFit is a strength and conditioning programme based on constantly varied, functional movements executed at high intensity.

The competition saw deadlifts, hang cluster weightlifting and overhead lunges.

CrossFit All Out run sessions for all ages and abilities.
