A lot of you have been asking about some of the competitions we have been talking about. The first one coming up is going to be held at CrossFit Lando in Woburn, MA on December 7th. This is the Battle of the Sexes and is an individual competition. This is a male and female all RX ONLY competition all athletes competing for the same prizes. Scaling will be done in the classic CrossFit style with a catch: Men and Women will be competing in one division for the same $600 purse.
So far we have Nigel, Carla and CJ interested in competing. To my knowledge, this is going to be CJ’s first competition. That first one is always nerve-wracking, but as we all know CJ is a great athlete and will do amazing things on that Saturday.
The other competition we are getting excited about is a team competition of 2 guys/2 girls for three events. This competition is the 3rd Annual “Not Your Average Joe’s” Team Competition hosted by our good friends North Shore CrossFit in Danvers, MA and will be held on January 18th.
This competition is a one day event and is a LOT of fun. It was the first competition I competed in two years ago. There has been a lot of talk in the gym about this competition, and it sounds like we’ve got about 12-15 people interested in doing this competition. If you’ve ever been interested in doing a competition, but have reservations, this is a perfect first time competition. This is a small local competition and HOPEFULLY, no big-time athletes will be competing (that would just be a cheap shot if you ask me).
If you are interested and don’t have a team yet or are in need of more people for your team, let any coach know and we will help you out or add you to the list of everyone else in the same shoes. We will begin to organize the teams over the weekend and begin to let you know what your team will be next week.
If you already have a team, let us know what your team is so we can take names off the list of those who are interested. You will need to have a Team name, all team members’ names, all t-shirt sizes (for both men and women’s shirts), the gym name you are competing for (CrossFit Boston… obviously, duh), and a gym logo. (I will provide the logo for all teams competing under CrossFit Boston).
