CrossTown Throwdown This Saturday Nov 9th!


This Saturday November 9th, we’re competing against CrossFit Sweat Shop in our annual CrossTown Throwdown competition.  Everything get started at 8:30am, so please be there no later than 8am so that we can get you warmed up and ready to go.

A few particulars to get out of the way.

1.  There’s a uniform requirement.  Everyone who’s competing for CFO needs to wear one of our dark grey CFO t-shirts or tank tops (either the first generation ones or the new ones we’re now selling).

2.  We need 5 volunteers who are not competing to help us with counting reps and keeping the whole thing running smoothly.  Please email us ASAP if you can volunteer.

3.  There’s no set end date, but most of the workouts are pretty quick.  That being said, plan for it getting done between 3pm and 5pm, just to be safe.

4.  Carpools are a great idea!  The parking situation is going to be tight.  Coordinate carpool connections via our FB page.

Now, onto the most important stuff–the workouts and the workout assignments.  Please note that in many of the workouts, there are more people assigned to the workout than there are participants in each workout.  This is because one of the rules in the CrossTown Throwdown is that no individual can participate in two workouts in a row.  So if someone’s on the list for one workout, but they just competed in the workout prior (remember, the workouts are all know, but the order of the workouts is unknown), they’re not able to compete.  So you gotta be ready to go if your name is assigned to the workout.
