Sergio's Celebrates Shawn Ramirez's CrossFit Championship!

August 12, 2016

On Tuesday, Shawn was welcomed home by Sergio's in style! Good2Go meals, photos with Lola La Flaca… it was a special day at Sergio's Doral location. Ramirez took home the title of 2016 Reebok CrossFit Masters Champion July 25 – a victory which touches the Sergio's team dearly.

Ramirez - known as "The Ram" - won the national CrossFit competition in 2014 and 2015, but after a major injury in November 2015, doctors told Shawn a third win wasn't possible. With his incredible support system, healthy diet and physical therapy, the 42-year-old father of three is honored to be CrossFit Master once again.

CEO of Sergio's Restaurant, Carlos Gazitua is extremely proud of the fittest man on earth.

"It was so great to see my friend Shawn back home – he is such an inspiration to all of us at Sergio's," Gazitua said. "His perseverance and commitment to health is something I look up to – especially as a father."

To stay competitive, Ramirez relied on Sergio's. He loves the convenience of Sergio's customizable bowls, with balanced protein and carbs well-proportioned to fuel his his workouts. Ramirez and Olympic gymnast Danell Leyva are both spokesmen for Sergio's Restaurants. Leyva is competing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Ramirez is a great example of what you can achieve when you dedicate time to health. As heart disease is the number one killer in Florida, fueling your workouts with the right amount of protein and carbs is very important for a healthy lifestyle. Sergio's Good2Go bowls made it easy for Ramirez to plan meals around his workouts.

"When we're all watching the Olympics, and are so proud of our nation – remember the discipline these athletes go through to get where they are," Ramirez said. "Now let's cheer on our boy Danell Leyva as he competes in Rio!

Ramirez looks forward to winning his fourth title in 2017! Sergio's is very proud of our local athletes, make sure to watch Danell Leyva compete!
