As the Open ends, it sparks the start of the CrossFit Competition season. The comp scene in the UK is forever growing, there are now 30+ comps planned in the UK for the Spring/Summer season:
With so many comps, there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved and have fun at one of the competitions. Last year at the Colosseum games was a great day out with Bold having 5 teams entered (ok lets not speak about that comp ever again).
COMPS FOR ALL ABILITIES
The Colosseum Games last summer was a great example of a competition for all abilities, as was Tribal Clash (Bold have 2 teams for this year so will need some of you machines to represent for us again). These are great days/weekends out and bring the UK CrossFit community together.
Whilst some of us train purely for fun and fitness, some have that natural competitive instinct and want to be tested. Comps like the ones i've mentioned, as well as the Box Battle series, are great for you guys to get your fix and sample the competitive world of CrossFit, and allows for all abilities to get involved (with that said... go get yourself signed up for the Box Battle in April at Bold)
As the season kicks off, we are looking for additional athletes to join our Comp Squad and represent CrossFit Bold at the various competitions throughout the year.
Each Saturday at 12, Noon, the comp squad get together and work on their skills and throwdown with each other to help prep them for competition.
Due to the movements that are usually seen in the more advanced competitions (Muscle ups, pistols, heavy snatches/C&J etc), our standards for our Comp athletes are that they must be to a Level 3 standard on the Athlete Level test (i.e. you would have completed 90% of the Level 2 standards and 1 of the Metcons) - View the List Here.
If you are interested in getting involved in the competition side of things that CrossFit offers, and have been completing the Level 2 movements in open gym or when programmed in class (like Helen and Fran in recent weeks) and you've been getting these signed off by a coach, come chat to me and we can get you involved and ready for combat!
