“It was a few days before Christmas and all through the gym, sweaty bodies lay everywhere just trying to get a breath in”

An exaggeration I am sure, but with Christmas nearly upon us it is time to pit yourself (and a friend) against the rest of the members. Then once bragging rights have been settled, we can cook some meat and hang out.

This is a partner challenge so pick carefully.  You get to choose who is on your side for this series of 3 challenges. We plan on 3 separate workouts to test your combined fitness.

There will be 3 categories; Men, Women and Mixed.

We will start at 9am and go until we are done (aiming for before noon) then it is BBQ time. It is members (or spouses and friends who CrossFit if you ask nicely) only to compete in the challenge, but all are welcome to support the partners challenge and at the BBQ. Friends, family and well behaved dogs welcome.
