Who's The Fittest of Them All?

Announcing: a CFVB competition to find the fittest on the Treasure Coast!

Why: As most of your know, Fight Gone Bad is no longer a world-wide CrossFit fundraiser, but that won't stop us from having our own event for a good cause!

When: Saturday, September 15 at 9 AM

Where: CrossFit Vero Beach

Divisions: Rx, Scaled and Master's (40 and over) – if you are able to do the movements as Rx for most of our WODs, sign up for that division. If not, go scaled. Master's weights will be lighter then Rx and advanced movements, like muscle-ups will not be programmed. You will have an opportunity to change your division after the WODs are announced.

The WODs: To be announced a few days before the competition, but plan on at least two events

Entry fee: $25. Profits benefit the Treasure Coast Food Bank.

Sign up at the gym. Deadline is September 1.

More details:
– We will release more details over the next six weeks.
– All competitors will have judges and be held to movement standards.
– There will be prizes! If your business wants to donate prize(s), let me know.
– We've also invited Treasure Coast CrossFit and the competition is limited to members of our two gyms only.
– Spectators are welcome!
– This will be a lot of fun and a great opportunity for first-time competitors.

    Can we exclude Chuck Sullivan from this event so I can at least get a shot at being a contender for the masters division?
