THE ANNUAL INTER-CLASS THROWDOWN!
WHEN!? – Mon 14th – Fri 18th August
HOW!? – Click to Enrol for the Throwdown
It’s that time of year again! Time to see which class will win this year’s battle between the classes of CrossFit Proficient! Last year the title has been taken out by the 6pm Crew, can anyone knock them off the podium this year!?
Some of you may be wondering what I’m on about, so before we get into the details, a little back-story:
The Inter-Class Throwdown began 2 years ago when the coaches thought it would be a good idea to see if classes could back up their smack talk with their performances on the floor.
SO THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
The daily workouts for Monday 14th August, Tuesday 15th August, Wednesday 16th August and Thursday 17th August will be programmed ‘as normal’. So whether you just want to come and train or you want to help your class log the highest score, then you can.
Each class on the Monday through to Thursday will perform the same workout (scaled up or down appropriately for each class/level) and all of the scores from that class will then be logged and an average taken.
The averages taken from each class over the 4 days will subsequently begin to form the leaderboard.
The challenge will end with a Final Throwdown on Friday 18th August which anyone can take part in. A last chance to change the leaderboard!
WHAT ARE THE CLASSES/TEAMS?
We have produced a list below of the classes/teams. Many of you attend the same class regularly and will know straight away which class is your crew. Some float between classes, which is fine, but whatever class you attend on the Monday-Thursday your score will count towards their average. On the Friday your score would go under the class you attend most during the week.
Some classes on the schedule have been coupled together so the attendance numbers are roughly all the same throughout the day and also take into consideration ‘the floaters’.
HERE ARE THE CLASSES/TEAMS:
The “Morning Class” – 6am/7am Open Gym
The Lunchtime Crew “LTC” – 9:30am/12pm
The “Afternoon Shift” – 4pm Open Gym/5pm
6pm Crew – 6pm/7pm Open Gym
“WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO TAKE PART IN THE THROWDOWN?”
We understand that not everyone likes the idea of competing; you just want to train hard. The workouts/classes Monday-Friday will run as normal 60min classes, it’s just that the workouts will be used for the teams to log scores.
“I DON’T HAVE AN UNLIMITED MEMBERSHIP BUT WANT TO SUPPORT MY CLASS ALL WEEK! WHAT CAN I DO?”
Not a problem, for the week of 14th August to the 18th August we will allow everyone to attend unlimited classes that week at no extra cost.
“I WANT TO HELP MY CLASS, DO I HAVE TO ATTEND EVERY DAY DURING THAT WEEK?”
Not at all, just come and train whatever days you can and have fun! As we are using the average scores it doesn’t matter how many people are in each class on a given day.
“I’M WORRIED ABOUT BEING ABLE TO DO THE WORKOUTS. WHAT WILL THEY BE LIKE?”
Not to worry, all the workouts will come with appropriate scaling for all levels.
The workouts will be a mixture of individual and team workouts.
“HOW TO SIGN UP?”
If you are just taking part Monday to Friday there is no need to sign up.
So, get yourselves signed up and get ready to bring your game faces, the battle for the fittest class in CrossFit Proficient is about to unfold…
