We LOVE getting to know our customers and learning more about what they do. With summer here, everyone’s focused on not only looking their best, but being their healthiest. We thought now’s the perfect time to spotlight a Jakprints customer helping their customers achieve their health and fitness goals!
CrossFit Distinction is a CrossFit gym located in Beachwood Ohio, owned and operated by Travis and Regina Page. The CrossFit owners and staff have created a positive community atmosphere that promotes living a healthy lifestyle.
When we asked what makes their gym unique, the told us that everyone that comes into the gym does the workout listed for the day, however, you still end up getting personal training and lots of one on one attention. The workouts are constantly varied, some short, others long, with movements ranging from bodyweight exercises to Olympic lifts. Crossfit tells us, “This provides a great way to get fit and keep active, and for some, it becomes their sport.”
In 2007, the founders of CrossFit created the CrossFit Games. Athletes from all over the world compete in various events that are announced just prior to the start. This became the platform for determining what they called, “The Fittest on Earth.”
For the second year coaches at CrossFit Distinction, or CFD as its members refer to it, are preparing one of their athletes, Scott Panchik for the CrossFit Games (Scott was the 2012 CrossFit Games 4th place finisher.)
These vinyl circle stickers and t-shirts, printed by Jakprints, were made so that CFD members could show their support for Scott as he competed in the regional qualifier in Columbus. Scott finished 2nd place in the completion, earning him a trip to Carson, CA to compete in the finals, which will be held July 22-28.
The front of the t-shirt is an athlete performing “the snatch.” The snatch is an Olympic lift that’s part of the CrossFit regimen, and one that Scott excels at. The back of the shirt features CrossFit Distinction’s primary logo, the chief skull. The logo evolved from one of owner Travis Page’s many tattoos. It was recently reworked by CFD Endurance coach and tattoo artist, Ryan R. Speed (Classic Tattoo, North Olmsted.) The original logo is now placed as the centerpiece of the chief skull’s headdress. To finish off the design, the State of Ohio flag was added to the left arm.
Everyone at Jakprints is cheering on Scott Panchik at the CrossFit Games finals! If you’re in the greater Cleveland area and are looking for a challenging but rewarding method of training, give CrossFit a try!
