Paraphrased from CrossFit HQ:

The Support Your Local Box Fundraiser is a CrossFit event for the benefit of CrossFit affiliates affected by COVID-19 around the globe, including your very own FCF. The temporary closures and distance between us cannot keep this community apart. Affiliates around the world have demonstrated this through their actions over the past few weeks. Now, the entire CrossFit community has an opportunity to come together in support of our affiliates.

Event Format

Over the next 3 weeks, CrossFit.com will release

  • 3 classic and accessible workouts
  • Workouts can be performed by participants of any ability level.
  • Everyone who participates will have their name displayed on the community leaderboard and will be able to create smaller leaderboards among friends, family, and other members of their affiliate using leaderboard hashtags.
  • FCF will use our usual #HYFRsquad
  • HYFR = Hell Yeah, F*cking Right

Registration began on 4/1 at games.crossfit.com/open, and will remain open for the duration of the competition.

The first workout will be released on Friday, April 3.

How to Contribute

Every CrossFit affiliate, trainer, and participant has been impacted by COVID-19, but we recognize some gyms will have greater needs than others in the coming weeks and months. All participants can use social media to direct and encourage contributions to their own affiliate or another affiliate in the community that needs our help. This is also an opportunity to rally family and friends to participate in this accessible event.

Support Your Affiliate: Select ‘Foundation CrossFit’ as your affiliate in the registration process to have your registration pass directly to us so that we can reopen when this is all over.

For all of us, this is also a chance to share the benefits of CrossFit with friends and family. Not only do we have an opportunity to raise funds for affiliates and trainers in need, but we can use this charitable event to bring CrossFit into the garages and living rooms of our loved ones. We encourage everyone to share the free and accessible scaled versions of the event workouts with those in their lives for whom this could be an entry point into improving their own fitness and health as part of the global CrossFit community.

Note: Registration fees and additional contributions to the Support Your Local Box event are not tax deductible.

Throwback Thursday: a staff picture with Nate and Carl the last time we hosted a Freestyle Connection Seminar

“So what’s this seminar we’re hosting on Tuesday all about?”

GLAD YOU ASKED!

This is a 2 hour workshop designed to be an exploration of movement thru the Freestyle Connection framework. The seminar will help attendees set movement standards and learn to create universal progressions.

Specifically Carl will address:
– Freestyle Connection Framework. A universal language for movement.
– Principles of Motor Control
– Pushing and Pulling
– The theory of Blocking Movement

This seminar is designed to help you:
* Turn on and trust your intuition about movement
* Use tools that help optimize imperfect movement
* Tap into the universal movement patterns and progressions underlying all disciplines
* Use Carl Paoli’s movement framework to create roadmaps for your physical success
* Learn what being strong really means
