We had a great time over at the Fresh Coast Games this weekend! The event took place on the sandy Pere Marquette Beach Saturday and Sunday, July 11-12! It was a stacked competition with over 30 Male and Female teams in each division! It was teams of 3 Male/Female. Team RE/MAX was in the RX Male Division Saturday and boy was it HOT! The water felt good for me as I did the swim leg of the event but we were in and out of it all day after the 3 workouts.
The event is mainly focused around Crossfit. Incorporating strength, gymnastics, and a good dose of cardio! The beach is taken over with a big steal rig to perform some of the gymnastic movements, lifting platforms, equipment and weights along with a sea of volunteers for the event! It was quite the site and even more fun to be out there competing.
The best event I think we had was lifting event! We all hit some personal records. Jordan Walker with a 300 lb. Clean and Jerk and myself (Kevin Ahrens) and Tyler Pavliga with a 310 lb! We ended up rounding out a fifth-place overall! Very tight leader board near the top for most of the day so each second on each event mattered! Go check out @

This was the 5th year for Fresh Coast and it has consistently been getting bigger and better! So much fun, highly recommend for both spectating or competing! Thankful to the community who kept this together even during the Covid Pandemic. Looking forward to being back next year!
