Jami Tikkanen  I'm a human performance coach inspired by those willing to go beyond the ordinary.

Incredible performances by @eikgylfadottir and @stephchung2 punching their first tickets to @crossfitgames this weekend.
.
Years of persistent hard work and sacrifice.
.
A vision (of becoming the kind of person who can qualify for the CrossFit Games).
.
The courage to believe in oneself (when it matters the most).
.
Simple things that are not easy to do.
.
Moments like these will make them worth doing.

I could not be more proud of the effort of our team this weekend! @anniethorisdottir finishing at the top of the extremely competitive female field and @bk_gudmundsson coming back with a vengeance from the adversity on day 1 were for sure some of the highlights of my coaching career.
.
I was perhaps even more impressed with @frederikaegidius through the competition even though we didn’t get the outcome we wanted.
.
The way he competed and held himself through this whole weekend, showed the continuous growth of the person as an athlete.
.
These performances don’t happen without the right people on the team. A huge thanks to @mobilitymatt @alexandra.osteo for treating the athletes, @activebacks has been a crucial part of the team for years now.
.
Finally, thanks to all the staff and volunteers! This was easily the smoothest experience I’ve had as a coach at regionals for the past 9-years.

How well did you pace it?

Did you crash and burn, go too slow or get it just right?

Working on my coffee game
#butcoffeefirst

One of the highlights of my coaching year was to see @frederikaegidius back on the @crossfitgames competition floor.  It was a long time coming and earned through years of hard work and discipline.  This moment when Frederik and @bk_gudmundsson worked together like a cycling team in their race against @jasoncarroll89 on the cyclocross event will go down as one of my favourite CrossFit Games memories of all time.
.
@thetrainingplan

@bk_gudmundsson came into this years @crossfitgames more hungry and more ready than ever. Finishing 6th this time, he has been at the top of the men’s competition for the past three years now. I know that being “one of the best” is not enough for him and he has the mindset, work ethic and physical ability to stand on the top of the podium in the coming years.
.
Excited to see how far we can go in 2018.

@thetrainingplan

Honoured to have been working together for the past 8 years @anniethorisdottir .
I never cease to be impressed by your growth, year after year.

In May 2009 at age 19 I won a small competition in Iceland and won a spot at something called the @crossfitgames.
I decided to travel to California, mostly because I wanted to go to the USA, but it turned out to be the best decision I ever made.
This movement was what made me fall in love with the sport.
8 years have gone by, 2 gold medals, two silver and today I got my fifth medal. This one has great significance as this marks two years of struggle. Two years of doubts, questions and self evaluation. Two years of trying not to listen to the doubters. Tonight I put those voices to rest.
As a competitor I always strive to be the best version of myself and looking back at the last 4 days I left everything I had on the floor. I can go to bed knowing that I did all I could.
Now it's time to rest, recover and look towards 2018..

It is rare for me to feel satisfied with how a competition weekend goes as I tend find myself focused on what I could have done better to support the athletes I work with.  This weekend, the Meridian Regionals were an exception. Not because there isn’t room to improve (there always is) but because of the exceptional results the athletes achieved through their efforts.
.
To say that the Meridian Regionals felt like a success as a coach would be an understatement.

Congratulations
