Male/Male — Female/Female — Male/Female

You can expect 3 workouts for each division.  Don’t be surprised if we surprise you.

WODs will be announced via Facebook  a week prior to each event.

Division Standards

RX: RX means you can do a vast majority of named CrossFit workouts as prescribed. Chest to bar pull ups for both men and women. Ground to overhead 135# men or 95# women. Deadlift for reps 225# for men and 155# women.  These are working weights, not a 1 rep.

Scaled: Scaled means you scale your workouts often. Events will be a scaled version of the RX division. As a rule of thumb, you should be able get through small sets of pull ups in a WOD and do multiple reps of ground to overhead at 95# men or 65# women and deadlift 185# men or 135# women.
