CrossFit Chosen is more than a box, more than a gym, more than a place to workout. CrossFit Chosen is a community and a place to find a second home, one with like-minded individuals with a focus on fitness and well-being.

The Catalyst Games is a CrossFit competition run by Amanda Petroccione and the team from Chosen Athletics in Canandaigua, NY. What was started in 2012 by Chad and Melissa Curtis as a small competition to benefit a local charity, has grown into largest event of its kind in Upstate New York. The gang at Chosen plans to deliver the same awesome event you all know and love.

One year ago versus today.... @faith.wyandd has come such a long way, and she’s only just begun. At a mere 15 years old and only a year and half into CrossFit she has built so much strength and power. To say we are proud of her is an understatement. She embodies the true meaning of dedication and perseverance. It’s an absolute pleasure working with an athlete like her. @crossfit_chosen @chosen_barbell @amandapetro_ @sarawyand #crossfit #crossfitgames2019 #teenathlete #crossfitteens #futuregamescompetitor #allin #strongerfasterbetter #stayhungry ...
