The CrossFit Open is officially behind us, summer is right around the corner, and that means it’s high time for an in-house Throwdown, Partner style! You’ve been grinding hard, getting stronger and fitter week in and week out, so it’s only right you and your partner put your collective fitness to the test against your fellow athletes.
The Throwdown will take place Saturday, May 12th from 9:00am-1:00pm. There will be ~4 events with a little bit of everything mixed in, from max effort strength tests to pure bodyweight conditioning to skills based challenges. Stay tuned for clues as to what will be included but it is all movements we have been practicing and emphasizing in class! Same-sex teams will be required to sign up for either the Rx or Scaled divisions so everyone will be able to participate. Sign up online here!
There will be a $20 buy-in per team that will go to a charitable organization chosen by all the participating teams. On the sign up sheet we are asking for 1 recommendation per person for a worthy charity who will receive a donation. Keep an eye out for a follow up email as we get closer to the event to narrow down the list and determine which charity ultimately receives the donation.
Weather permitting, we’ll be doing a cookout immediately following the Throwdown 1:30-3:30PM. We will be setting up on the roof and everyone is invited to attend, regardless of whether or not you are able to make it to the Throwdown. The sign-up sheet for the cookout will be posted on the whiteboard so please make sure to sign up as soon as possible so we can figure out what everyone is bringing.
Mark your calendars and assemble your squad for what is sure to be a great afternoon of fitness and fun competition. Once you’ve got your partner, don’t delay – get your team registered ASAP. Now is the time to showcase all the effort and progress you’ve made here at the gym and to set new goals moving forward! More details to follow in the coming weeks.
