Swolemate Showdown – Saturday, February 11th, 2017
Here at Outlier we are very excited to share with you our new competition series. Competition is one of the things that makes CrossFit so much fun. On a daily basis we show up to classes to push ourselves and our friends to see what we are capable of. Every so often we like to go outside our familiar walls of our home gym and compete with people we don’t normally see and put ourselves in a performance position. Local competitions are a place for people to see how they stack up against the rest as well as a great place to have fun with new and old friends.
Here at Outlier CrossFit we are rolling out a four part competition series that we feel many CrossFitters will be very excited to be a part of. Our focus is to provide a competition experience like nothing else offered in San Diego. The competitions will be fueled by programming that is fresh and different from the current offerings. From new formats to movements and equipment not typically seen. Every competitor will have more than ample action time to feel like they got their money’s worth. All events are going to be team events offered in the following format with a scaled format and a RX division: 1 Male/1 Female, 1 Female/1 Female (NO RX CATEGORY AVAILABLE FOR THIS DIVISON), 1 Male/1 Male.
There is a feature of the coming events that we are excited to announce. When a team competes in one event. Those points will carry through to the future events and add up at the end of the series to help us place winners in the final championship round where cash prizes and trophies will be given out to the best performing teams throughout the year. We are confident that after the dust has settled from the first comp that many of you will be excited to take part in the next one. We will offer half off entries to the winners along with other prizes for each competition. So lets start going over the details!
Our first part of our series kicked off with our Halloween Throwdown on October 29th, followed by our Swolemate Showdown in February 11th, 2017, our Summer Smackdown on May 20th, 2017, and we will end the series with the Best Coast Invitational on August 19th, 2017.
We will be offering a scaled division along with a RX division for every competition for each partner combination with the exception of the female/female RX division so we will have 5 different options offered to compete in. The price for the competition is $69 per person if you sign up by midnight on Sunday, January 1st, 2017 (ENTER CODE SWOLEMATE2017 FOR $10 EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT).
