The Heartland HavOC3 started because Colin Cartee has competition running through his blood. It’s what he eats for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He has it for a snack and during his breaks. It’s his everyday reality and it never sleeps. Opening a gym was a dream come true for Colin, and getting to program and run an annual competition is the cherry on top!

Coming from a very competitive sports background, then coaching and eventually becoming a CrossFit Games athlete, Colin thrives on the adrenaline that is unique to competitions. It was only natural for him to create one he could call his own.

The Goal: For each and every HavOC3 competitor to feel like a CrossFit Games athlete.

Also important: Running things in a very professional, organized and fun manner. Thanks to an amazing staff, volunteers and co-owners Jessie Cartee and Kolton O’Day,  you’ll find this competition to run smoothly and on time. The facility will be clean and organized. Your needs will be taken care of and the judging will be on point!

There is no question that you’ll get your money’s worth as a Heartland HavOC3 athlete!
