Fran Challenge in Rockville, MD

Hey Everyone,
www.crossfitextremefitness.com (wfs) will be holding a Fran Challenge at our box in Rockville, MD. We will be doing "Fran" this Saturday, October 24th, to establish baseline times, and will be holding finals six weeks from now on Saturday, December 12th. There will be cash prizes awarded for most improved competitors, as well as the competitors with the fastest times. We had originally planned to keep this internal to our box, but after talking with a few friends at the mid-atlantic hopper, we're going to open it up to folks from other boxes too.

Athletes may compete in one of three categories. Athletes can't switch categories partway through the challenge. Whatever category you start in is what you will finish in.

Advanced Athletes will be doing "Fran" as rx'd. Only advanced athletes will be eligible to win fastest time prizes.

Intermediate Athletes will be scaled to 75/45lbs for the thrusters, and will be using a small band for assistance with the pull-ups.

Beginner Athletes will be scaled to 45/22lbs for the thrusters, and will use a large band for assistance with the pull-ups.

If you're interested in participating, please e-mail me at caleb.d.johnson@gmail.com.

Re: Fran Challenge in Rockville, MD

Hey Jenny,
The challenge goes during our normal class times of 9, 10, and 11am.

Steven,
even if you can't make the baseline, you should still come out for the finals. We're probably going to have a cookout (or cook-in since it will be December) afterward.

Caleb-
I can't make the baseline either, but I'll put the finals date on my calendar.
Good luck with the event -- it sounds awesome.
Ohh, and say hi to Judd for me.

Re: Fran Challenge in Rockville, MD

Cookout sounds good to me. Would that be in afternoon? I usually work Sat mornings..

Re: Fran Challenge in Rockville, MD

Sean, will do! I'll post more details about the finals/cookout when it gets closer. It will probably be the same deal, do "Fran" during our normal saturday AM class times, then eat and drink afterward.

Again, if you're planning on coming, please e-mail me at caleb.d.johnson@gmail.com.
