there may be mixed views about crossfit and it's training principles.  but one thing that cannot be disputed is that crossfit peeps are one of the friendliest, most supportive groups out there.

point in case...this saturday on the west-side is hosting a haiti relief fundraising event. crossfit affiliate owner, dhani oks is a do-gooder and has organized many events to benefit the community.  this time...he's making the cause global for a population in great need right now.

"operation lift haiti" all money raised will go to globalmedic, an organization that provides emergency relief to those effected by natural disasters.

the event is a fun way to help, and ALL levels of athletes are welcome.  bring the kiddies too!  teams of two will work together to complete max reps and top scores!

date:  saturday, january 30, 2010 time: noon location:  crossfitgyms, 20 gladstone avenue

THE WORKOUT 20 pull-ups estimated average reps: 400-700+ 20 thrusters (boys 65 lbs, girls 45 lbs) 20 kettle bell swings (boys 16 kg, girls 12 kg) 20 push-ups 20 box jumps (20 inch)

score as many reps as possible in 15 minutes.  one partner works at a time, and movements can be split among the pair. so if thrusters ain't your thing...your partner has you covered!

there are rx'd and scaled versions, so don't let "i can't do that" stop you from joining!

participants are asked to register before noon on friday jan.29th. if you are interested please contact us at as we are submitting participants to dhani. don't worry if you are solo...we have lots of partners to go around! ;)

can't make it?  consider sponsoring a team, and spread the word!

get your crew together and get your karma on!
