Who are/what is GameDay Competitions?
GameDay Competitions is focused on bringing the spirit of major CrossFit competitions to the upper Midwest! They're great people to work with and we're very excited to see their growth and success. When asked to describe who they are and what they do, they shared this vision statement with us:
Vision and Purpose
We formed our company three years ago with the sole vision of making elite level competitions accessible to the entire CrossFit community. Our very first competition was held in a college gym, 10 lanes, a few weights and borrowed equipment, no rig and no idea how it all would pan out. We had under 100 athletes but it was an exciting start! Three years later, we are humbled by the support of our athletes and excited to see each one of them give it everything they have on the competition floor.
There are countless athletes that train 5, 6, even 7 days a week without a first class competitive outlet. We want to be a reason for you to train, get pumped up (or even a bit nervous) before 3-2-1-Go! and feel GREAT about yourself in the competitive environment we provide. In all we do, our mission is inspire, excite and reward!

We've been pretty busy here at PRx! As a growing business, we needed to continue developing and that's exactly what we have been doing for the past two weeks. If you have wandered over to our social media pages, you've seen us documenting our move to a new building. We ditched the old, tucked away offices with a shared warehouse for a brand new building with a big storage area all to ourselves. The offices went first with all of the desks, filing cabinets, and chairs being taken over in one load. It looked dangerous (checkout the top left picture) and we didn't dare drive more than 10 mph, but we made it and started setting up our new home. Then came the warehouse move. Truckload by truckload our products and shelving made the trip over. We jammed the place full of shelves and have been busy packing the place with our equipment ever since. Everything has now come together and we are loving the new place. The offices are getting homey touches and all the space is being utilized. Everybody on the team has been too busy to appreciate it though! With business booming and the move taking up our time, the orders started to pile up. All hands have been working in the warehouse to get things prepared and shipped. We felt terrible for the long waits on shipments, but we've been doing our best to catch up.
The growing pains have definitely set in, but we are learning and overcoming them. We have no doubt that we will keep growing and becoming a better business so we can continue to serve you guys, our amazing customers. We are terribly sorry for the lack of communication the past couple weeks, but it is all for the better! Our business is growing, but we will not lose the small business attention we give to everybody. The new address is 2975 39th Street South Unit A. If you are ever in the area, swing by, meet the team, and let's run over to Thunder Road and play a round of 18 on the mini putt course!
With Condolence yet Confidence,
-The PRx Team
