Announcing Sign-ups and Tryouts!

Sign up sheets are up for the Crosstown Throwdown (one for men and one for the ladies).  All are encouraged to participate not matter your skill level or experience! The idea is to get as many people from each gym to participate as possible so it will be a true test of gym vs gym.  This is also supposed to be fun and build community, so please come over to CrossFit Sweatshop on Saturday November 9th and be a part of this awesome annual tradition.  You can read all about the workouts on CF Sweatshop’s blog.

The purpose of the sign up sheets is to get an idea of who is available so we can begin to organize the 27 (!) workouts and strategize to best use all of your amazing skills – and yes you are all important to an overall win.  We need you !  Sign up now!  Emeryville sign up sheets are posted on the side of the fridge and Uptown sheets are printed and on the way over tomorrow.

How about a great way to test those skills and get warmed up for the Throwdown?  As we mentioned earlier, CFO has purchased 2 team spots at the Reindeer Games which is happening on December 14th in Concord.  We have 8 spots open for our 2 RX teams. Teams are comprised of 2 men and 2 women. Tryouts will be held on Saturday, October 26th at CFO during the Competitor Class with Coach Arnold from 11am-1pm.  Anyone and everyone is invited to tryout.

The tryouts will be comprised of at least 3 workouts/skills tests and will challenge all aspects of your fitness. Good luck to you all!

Here is the first tryout WOD released by Arnold:

Workout #1:

AMRAP in 10 minutes

15 Calorie Row
