The first annual Northstate's Fittest competition consisted of three scored events and a final qualifying event each designed as a CrossFit style workout. Forty men and 32 women competed. Eleven of the participants were from North Rim CrossFit in Chico.

I think all of us lost our voices cheering on the sidelines.”
