It is shaping up to be quite a storm in Providence, Sept 29 and 30!!
We are exceeding $3500 in prizes for top finishers, thanks to Reebok CrossFit, Progenex, Again Faster, AMRAP Gear, Life as RX, and Inov-8!!!! We have Preppy Pig BBQ lined up to be on hand to serve up some amazing food, and there will be Harpoon Cider available for all those spectators who will looking to party while they watch the sweat and tears of the competition!
In keeping with the idea of CrossFit and CrossFit WODs (unknown and unknowable), we’ve been quite secretive about the WODs and what they may entail, however, without giving it away completely we’re hoping to appease certain people about the nature of the WODs over the weekend and also shed some light on what what you will have a chance at winning, should you sign up. (Yes, we thought you’d like that…!)
The WODs will focus on work capacity and will not be highly technical. The weight ranges will be 135#/95# for RX and 95#/65# for Scaled. Masters divisions will be using the Scaled weights.
There will be two “Strength Only” WODs – One comprising of a 1RM TGU combining both left and right armed weights and the other a 5RM Push Press, taken from the floor. The rest of the Day 1 WODS will be released soon, so keep your eyes peeled to your email!
Now that that’s out in the open, spread the word, recruit your friends and fellow box-wodders. Stand on your roof and shout, “THE EYE OF THE STORM IS COMING!” This is going to be an epic event. There is going to be some great WODs, exciting spectating, BBQ on offer, awesome prizes up for grabs and just a truly amazing atmosphere all weekend.
If you’re L1 certfied, we’d love your judging expertise. If you’re heart’s beating, we’d love your volunteering expertise. All volunteers and judges receive lunch and dinner over the weekend and a free t-shirt.
If you’re ready to throw down, we want to see you compete against some of New England’s fittest individuals! Registration closes on September 25 and it’s only $100 to compete. Free t-shirts for competitors!
