The Challenges

The Challenges will consist of one WOD (Workout of the Day) each week for 7 weeks, with a final on Week 8.

WODs will be sent to the teams each week to be completed in the respective boxes and scores sent to Cynergy CrossFit (CCF) by the end of each week.

Each team must have a CrossFit Level 1 Certified trainer present to judge, verify and uphold the standards set for each competition WOD.

The final event will be a clean slate and the teams will be arranged in the order set by the scores submitted throughout the 7 weeks for heat assignments.
