Sep 17 – Grand Opening / FGB

September 17, 2011: Grand Opening Party w/ Fight Gone Bad

Please join us as we celebrate our Grand Opening.  This event is for EVERYONE; members, friends, family and anyone else!  The day will kick off at 9:00am with our first heat of Fight Gone Bad.  We will run heats every half hour with the last one starting at 11:30am.  Once we conclude the WOD we will enjoy a BBQ, drinks and some good ol fashioned fun.

Fight Gone Bad:

On September 17th CrossFit Affiliates around the world are doing FGB and raising money for 3 great causes:  Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Infant Swimming Resource / CrossFit Kids, and Camp Patriot.  For more detailed information about the world-wide event visit THIS PAGE.  We are asking our members to please create your own account to donate and raise money by visiting THIS PAGE.

In Fight Gone Bad an individual moves through 5 exercises completing as many reps as possible in one minute of each.  5 minutes (one minute at each exercise) makes up 1 round.  Every person will complete 3 rounds, resting 1 minute between each.  This workout lasts 17 minutes and the score is TOTAL reps.  Watch this video for a detailed description:

There will be sign up sheets in the gym for you to reserve your spot in a heat.  Each heat will have a capacity for 5 guys and 5 girls.  Heat times are as follows:

Scaled: 9:00am, 9:30am, 10:00am.  As Prescribed: 10:30am, 11:00am, 11:30am.

If you are not a member of CFR and still want to workout please send us an email with your requested heat time.  EVERYONE who plans on participating in FGB must sign up for a heat and donate ANY amount to the foundation.


From Noon to 5-ish enjoy some good eats and drinks.  CrossFit Reviver is providing BBQ (chicken, burgers, sausage, etc), water, Gatorade and snacks (bring your own adult beverages).  We are asking our members to help out by bringing appetizers; there will be a sign up sheet in the gym.

Again, this event is for EVERYONE.  Come out and celebrate with us; this is the first of many awesome events at CFR!
