A local CrossFIt couple could soon be dubbed the title -- fittest people on Earth.
Sam and Jenny Dancer start competing at the
Reebok 2014 CrossFit Games
, Wednesday in Carson, California.
The couple owns
in Quincy but has spent the last year training together for the competition in Cincinnati.
"It's awesome to be able to compete together," Jenny Dancer said. "To be sweaty and tired and know that he's there for me when I'm working out and you can just kind of look and each other and know, 'okay he's telling me to keep going,' even though he doesn't say it out loud."
The Dancers competed in the open and regional competitions placing first in the Central East Division in the U.S. giving them opportunity to compete at the Games.
"She's my favorite teammate I've ever had," Sam Dancer said. "Not only because she's my wife but because there's something about her as a teammate and how hard she works. She is the best teammate I've ever had in any sport."
