Competing in CrossFit competitions often requires a lot of time, travel, and expense. Many athletes are also intimidated by being thrown into competition against the best of the best. With this in mind, we’ve created a way to experience the fun and learning of competition without all the downsides. Join us in the inaugural Affiliate Throwdown between CrossFit Impulse and CrossFit Huntsville. This is also a chance to network with fellow CrossFitters in your area. This will be a team competition, and we certainly want our team to win, but this isn’t a battle of the Empire vs the Rebellion. This is a friendly competition with the intent of advancing our fitness and having fun at the same time.
Teams will be constructed from three classes of athletes: beginner, immediate, and advanced. No matter what your ability level may be, you can contribute to the team and know you’ll be matched against other competitors of similar ability. Team workouts will be chosen with a system of random draw and alternating decision-making by each team. Each team will have a chance to sculpt the workout to their strengths, while the opposing team tries to do the same. You’ll also see Callouts, Wildcards, and other fun additions that mean absolutely anything can happen.
To sign up, fill out this data sheet and give it to a trainer at CFI (hardcopies also available at the gym). CFI and CFHSV trainers will use this data to group competitors into beginner, intermediate, and advanced categories. Then check out the complete rules here. After that just show up at 8 AM on January 29th at CrossFit Huntsville. This event is free, and it’s guaranteed to be one of the most rewarding ways you can spend your Saturday morning, so why not give it a shot?
