Workout of the Day

416 League

We wanted to find a way to amp up the fun during the CrossFit Open and encourage camaraderie and gym spirit of CF416.

In the past, we realized, to a lot of people, The Open was considered to be just for “competitors.” It’s not! The Open is just another workout, and we want to use it as a chance to celebrate all the awesome people in our gym and our unique culture.

So here are the details:

We are introducing the CF416 League!  League is an members in-house competition during the CrossFit Open.  A draft will happen where team captains (already selected) will be given one CF 416 coach and 4-5 seasoned Open vets to start the building process for their team. To fill their rosters, captains need to recruit – and that’s where you come in. Be prepared for captains and team members to ask you to join their team (hold out for the best offer :P)

Team members will complete the Open WOD for the week, and team points will be tallied based on the criteria outlined below.

 

WORKOUTS

As always, we will hold our Friday Night Lights events every Friday during the Open.  We will have a maximum of 50 people each Friday participate, sign-up will open 48 hours before.  Aside from that you can be tested during any Friday class,  during any Open Gym time on Saturday or Sunday, or you may organize a time for testing on Monday.  Your job on your team is to complete the WOD (Rx or scaled)!

 

POINTS

+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at CrossFit 416 each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!

+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at 416 for each workout (Rx only) gets an extra point for their team.

+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.

PRIZES

We’ll have some random draws each week for prizes, including gear, supplements, and training packages. The top team will also earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!

 

Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, happier and healthier!  We’re doing the Open workouts in class anyways, so if you’re training on Friday for the five weeks after Feb. 23, you’re going to do the workouts – so sign up! The in-house competition has both fitness and fun scoring opportunities, so don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a competitor. If you can smile, you can do it.

 

To help you improve on your weaknesses, we will be hosting a series of four workshops leading up to the start of League.  Stay tuned for more info!
