We’re honored and thrilled to have National Crossfit Competitor Alyssa Ritchey as one of our Shefit Brand Ambassadors! Read more about Alyssa: Hi, my name is Alyssa Ritchey. You may know me as the Dark horse, little Ritchey, or the Oreo fanatic. I have been crossfiting for a year and a half now. After only 5 months of crossfiting, last year after competing in the open I managed to sit 2nd which advanced me to the central east regionals, where I ended up 12th. This March I qualified for Weightlifting Nationals where I will be competing in Utah in hopes of qualifying for the 2014 World Championships. I train many hours in the gym while working 25-30 hours a week and going to school. Before crossfit I was in gymnastics, weightlifting and track & field. This year in the open I am currently sitting in 6th in hopes of standing on the podium to advance to the 2014 Crossfit Games.
At about the time of 2013 regional’s these were my Crossfit STATS: Snatch: 135 Clean & jerk: 175 Deadlift: 265 Front squat: 165 Split Jerk: 200 Diane: 2:02 Fran: 3:07
