Stepping Away from KF
Four Barrel will not be hosting Kentuckiana’s Fittest (KF) in 2019. As the sport and methodology of CrossFit have evolved, so have we. We still love the sport, will continue to participate in competitions, and will continue to offer coaching and services for competitive CrossFitters – We’re simply stepping away from hosting KF. We’ve loved seeing athletes of all abilities compete over the past 7 years, and we’ve appreciated the support and participation from the local and regional CrossFit community (the biggest reason it’s hard to step away).
Though financially viable, our small team (with the help of dozens of volunteers) put in hundreds of man hours each year planning, promoting, and executing the competition. Ultimately, we decided that we could better serve our clients by spending this time focusing on the quality of our daily programs, building new services, and hosting a second annual internal throwdown for our membership.
Thanks again to everyone who competed and spectated, and a huge thanks to our sponsors and volunteers.
We may one day return to a point where we’re comfortable investing time back into a big competition, but for now we’re choosing to focus on our members and our core services.
Thanks for an awesome 7 years of competition!
