On Saturday 24th September we will be hosting our annual in-house competition at Chalk. A team of 2 Same Sex Pairs fitness event that is open to any member who wants to take part. No matter where you are in your fitness journey, we see this as an opportunity to celebrate our fitness and have some fun with the Chalk community.
Who can get involved?
Everyone. This is a community event and we would love to see you all take part. Our 2022 Throwdown aims to accommodate all levels offering a beginner, intermediate and advanced division. Whether you’re new to the gym, a weekend warrior or veteran to the sport of CrossFit, this event will provide a platform for you to express your fitness. If you are thinking “I am not fit enough to compete”, we’re sorry to inform you you’ll never feel ‘fit enough’ so don’t let that excuse hold you back from having a great time. This event is about celebrating what your body can do and it’s going to have the best of everything; the experience of competing in a real event with judges, heat times, multiple workouts in the day, but also doing so at your own place with your fellow classmates competing with you, all for some bragging rights and a few adult beverages afterwards.
Registration is open on the Wodboard app ! Buy your team tickets below (1 ticket is for 2 athletes). There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each category. Not sure what category to complete in? Check out the Loading & Skill guide below.
The competition will kick-off at 8:30AM on Saturday 24th September. Teams will complete 3-4 events to be crowned the fittest in each category. As always, we promise to deliver fun and diverse challenges - some which will be very new to you! Three to four workouts over one day may seem like a lot, but we have carefully considered all workout components to ensure every one will be safe and have a great time. Some workouts will be released before the event, while others will be released at 8AM on Sept 25th during the athlete brief.
