Competition season is upon us and we’ve got several performance challenges coming up! We’re kicking off the new year with Row’d Royalty! This is a rowing competition much like the CrossFit Open with new workouts released each week on Thursday, and you have until Monday to complete them and post your score.
The competition officially starts on Thursday, January 5th and will conclude on Monday, January 30th.
Entry fee is $20 to post your score online, see where you stack up as an individual AND a team! We want to see how the whole gym compares to everyone else, but we want to see everyone push it between our two gyms, so we’ll also track the scores internally and see which gym has the highest participation AND who performs the best.
The gym with the most participation will get to host the after party as a celebration.
The gym with the highest performance will host the CFK Games in the spring.
WHHYYYYYYYY would I want to do MORE rowing????
Rowing shows up a lot in workouts week-to-week and the best way to get better at it is to just row more! It’s a great monostructural form of exercise that is low impact and can easily be varied in intensity.
Test and retest is a great way to see where you are! It’s a new year anyway, so why not see how your rowing fitness is and try to improve upon it?
Do I have to pay $20 to participate?
No, you don’t have to pay the $20. We’re not making any money off of this, but we do want to represent the gym well! If you still want to do the workouts and represent your side of town, just e-mail [email protected] with your scores every week.
Do I have to do the workout at the gym?
No! We like seeing you at the gym, but you can do these workouts at home on your own rower, or if you’re traveling you can find a rower and do the workout then!
I’m vertically challenged and not well built for rowing!
Row’d Royalty has height divisions!
Okay, I’m in. Where do I sign up?
When do I do it?
Anytime! But we will also host heats on Sunday mornings at both locations.
