Dr. Fidler Aligned for his Deadlifts
Annoucing Fight Gone Bad 2013!!!
Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser in the form of a workout called Fight Gone Bad. Last year, we raised over $34,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation. BCF is a local organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking and community service. This year, we'll be partnering with BCF again and hope to surpass last year's donation numbers.
When is Fight Gone Bad?
Saturday October 19th, 2013. First heat beginning at 9am.
What is Fight Gone Bad?
Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20lb, 10ft / 14lb, 9ft
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75/55 pounds
Box Jump, 20" box
Push-press, 75/55 pounds
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
What if I can't attend on Saturday 10/19?
Sign up anyway and select the option to be on Fight Gone Belated! We'll do our best to coordinate a make-up date with those athletes that can't attend so that you can still participate in the fun! You'll still get to create a team name, participate in fundraising and get a FGB tshirt!
Why are we fundraising?
In the past, our annual FGB Fundraiser has been a great way to bring our community together to support great charities. And because Brooklyn has been good to us, we want to help give back to the very community CFSBK is proud to call home. That's why we chose to support the Brooklyn Community Foundation. If you're not familiar with BCF, make sure you visit their website to check them out. Or if you're lazy at least check out their list of Grantees and we're sure you'll find one or two not far from you!
Will there be a fundraising minimum?
While we'd love everyone to make attempts to raise funds, there will be no fundraising minimum to participate. However as in years past, there will be prizes awarded to the top Individual and Team fundraisers!
Ok, you keep talking about fundraising but how should I do this and when should I begin?
Once our registration deadline ends on 9/13, we'll create teams consisting of 5 athletes. Shortly after, athletes will get an email from us with their team assignments and all of the details to set up your fundraising page. We'll be using Crowdrise as our fundraising platform again and participants will have individual fundraising pages that will be super easy to share with friends and family! (Check out last year's fundraising page HERE!)
What is this workout again? What if I can't do the workout Rx'd?
Here's Coach Glassman explaining FGB in detail. And don't worry, we'll have scaling options available!
So the day begins at 9am but how long will it last? When will my team go?
The length of the event will depend on how many total athletes/teams we have. We will run 3 teams through the workout simultaneously and will have new heats starting every 20 mins. Unfortunately, we won't be able to tell you exactly what time your team will be going until closer to the event. We hope though that you plan on spending a few hours with us, not only competing but also supporting your fellow teams. And as usual, we'll have some tasty adult beverages to enjoy!
Ok, I'm sold. Where do I register?
Sign me up for Fight Gone Bad 2013!
CFSBK and Ragnar Again!
It's been too long since CFSBK has had a Ragnar team. Ragnar Cape Cod is happening next spring, so I'm putting out feelers now for how many SBK'ers and friends would be interested in joining a team.
What is Ragnar, you ask? It's a 200-mile relay over the course of a day and a half. You'll run, drive, and (maybe) sleep on a beautiful, flat course through Cape Cod, and kick back on the beach with your fellow racers when it's over. The 200 miles are split unevenly among 12 runners, so there's room on the team for both experienced distance runners and novices. For more info on the racecourse and how the relay works, visit their site.
Next year's race takes place May 9-10. If you're interested and/or have questions, email me at stellavision(AT)gmail.com. No commitments at this point, just putting together a list of interested people. I'll start asking for firm yeses (and money) closer to race day.
This is not just for SBK members -- if you have a friend whom you'd like to race with, have him/her email me too!
