Survival Fitness Challenge 2011
Put your training to the test this coming August by joining CrossFitters (and other athletes alike) to get out of real-life emergency situations! While your typical CrossFit throwdown sees barbells, kettlebells, pull up bars, med balls and all that, The Courage Games keeps up it;s unique programming and goes even farther by putting all competitors into challenges that test their TRUE general physical preparedness.
Cars, ropes, sandbags, hammers, trees, walls, buildings, rocks, hills, and so much more are all potential obstacles in this 4-workout competition. You can expect to move heavy things, prove your agility, coordination and overall cardiovascular and muscular endurance throughout the day. Then you can expect to feast on meat, veggies and drink to celebrate when all is over! So save the date and plan to meet us over at the Washington Waldorf School grounds, just across from The Courage Performance Garage to show that your training over the years is actually doing something for you!
Here are all the details:
Saturday, August 20th 2011. 9am start time. Be there at 8am to register PLEASE!
Washington Waldorf School
4800 Sangamore Rd. Bethesda, MD 20816
After Party at The Garage
5000 Westpath Terrace, Bethesda, MD 20816 (right behind school)
$25 for all competitors
Base storylines for each workout will find their way out on the blog here around the end of July/early August, so those will offer some minimal hints, but, life isn't planned, so don't expect to know what's going to hit you until wham, it hits you:-)
All competitors will get a little goodie bag, and awards will be given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers, male and female.
There will be water and snacks and a few other things for sale there, but I highly recommend you bring your own stuff (food/drink/change of clothes etc). There is a shopping center about a quarter mile away with a CVS, Safeway, Starbucks and an awesome sandwich place. Heats and such will NOT be planned ahead, so if you end up leaving you'll run the risk of missing the start of a workout (again, it's pretty lenient, so we'll probably wait for you, but please try not to be "that guy" if you don;t bring enough stuff and have to go stock up...)
This is the most informal of The Courage Games Series, so there is no official registration. If you want in, just email me HERE and/or head to our FACEBOOK PAGE and post that you are wanting to join in the fun! I am capping the whole thing at 50 competitors, so make sure you show up on time or a little early!
Please bring your friends! There is nothing like hanging out all day in the great outdoors being around people who are pushing their own physical and mental limits. And this particular even is going to be extra exciting (the workouts are going to be VERY unique)!
Everyone will be invited to hang out afterwards at The Garage, to grill, eat, drink and chill by the pool. But, if you plan to join the party, you better bring something to share with everyone!
Start getting amped up people!
Never Stop, GET FIT.
