CrossFit Monrovia would like to invite you to participate in a fundraising event we are hosting on September 25, 2010. The event is called Fight Gone Bad and supports three excellent charities, the Wounded Warrior Project, LIVESTRONG, and the CrossFit Foundation.

This event is a CrossFit workout called “Fight Gone Bad.” In this workout the athlete spends one minute at each of five stations, resulting in a five-minute round. After each round a one-minute break is given before repeating two more times for a total of three rounds. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On the call of ‘rotate,’ the athletes must move to the next station immediately. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower, where each calorie is one point.

The stations are:

  1. Wall-ball, 10 ft target (Men 20#, Women 14#)
  2. Sumo dead-lift high-pull (Men 75#, Women 55#)
  3. Box jump 20”
  4. Push-press (Men 75#, Women 55#)
  5. Row (Calories)

The standard weights above are NOT required for all athletes, the workout weights are adjustable for everyone from kids to grandparents who will be participating. FGB is an excellent, challenging, and really fun workout. Trainers from CrossFit Monrovia will be working with competitors who are unfamiliar with the movements in order to bring them up to speed on the workout prior to competition. Our goal is to create a safe, fun and very challenging day for all, and to raise as much money as possible for these charities.

The minimum required donation is $20 to participate and can be made prior to the event online or as cash in person the day of the event. Further fundraising is encouraged, and you can sign up and raise money on line if you like. Go to www.FGB5.org for more information.

We are creating a commemorative T-shirt for the event that can be pre-ordered by September 17, for $10 or $15 the day of the event. Plan to stay the whole morning; this will be a fun and exciting event.

We truly hope you will be part of this competition. Please e-mail E-mail: contact@crossfitmonrovia.com or call (626)709-6370 for further information on participating or any other questions you may have.
