Saturday October 15th, worlds will collide at the spectacle of spectacles, the showdown of all showdowns, throwdown of all throwdowns, at OktoberFit @ CrossFit Silicon Valley Grand Opening Inaugural Throwdown!
This is an open invitation for all CrossFit boxes in the Bay Area/NorCal and the public, to checkout our new facility and compete in a battle royal of badass athleticism. Teams of three athletes (with at least one female) will compete in a test of strength, will, might!
We are planning an awesome day of WOD's, contests, prizes, beer, music, and alligators. (haha, we'll try our best on the planning.) Please continue to check this page as we finalize the event details.
The fun is free for spectators and the public. Bring your brothers, sisters, cousins, family and mail carrier too. Volunteers for coordinators and judges are also welcome. Please email email@example.com if you would like to help out.
Ooooooooh and one more thing:
There will be prizes for the best dressed teams! So come ready to wod in your lederhosen, trachtenblusen, and plattlerhosen! Don't forget to bring your stein.
Quotes about our new facility:
"It's sooo large." (That's what she said... -about the gym of course.)
"We be going H.A.M., our box is upgraded from bologna!"
"Check out the view from our ultralounge, The Mezzanine@CrossfitSV"
"The new gym is full of energy and always echoing with laughter and good times."
"Peace, love, and house music."
We would also like to especially thank our sponsors this event:
We welcome all OktoberFit athletes including:
OktoberFit Update: We will announce the WOD's this week.
(This way if by chance one of the events requires keg overhead walks, keg HSPU while doing a kegstand, or burpee beer pong you have a month to practice.) Not that those are the movements... just saying... =)
OktoberFit Movement Standards 1: MU-T2R, OHS (135/95#)
OktoberFit Update: There will be a biergarten at OktoberFit! YES!
Flexibility, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Accuracy, and Balance are 6 of the the ten general physical skills. These are all physical skills required for flip cup!! There will be an OktoberFit Flip Cup Challenge in the biergarten!
OktoberFit Movement Standards 2: BSC (155/105#)
OktoberFit WOD 5.5: Flip Cup! This is a bonus WOD in the biergarten. Want to call out another team? This is your chance.
Winners get bragging rights. Wieners get nothing.
There will be a cap of 40 teams (RX + scaled = 40) for this event. Register your team today!
WOD's and rep schemes will be adjusted to optimize event logistics and heat times.
DJ Surge and Planet Booty will be performing live at The Mezzanine@CrossfitSV during OktoberFit!!
We will post more OktoberFit Movement Standards this week! (Judd wanted to do his next video wearing lederhosen, so we had to wait until the order came in! This video also demos that it IS possible to WOD in ze lederhosen!)
Don't have a pair of lederhosen? No worries! Here's a groupon we found for half off! http://t.co/o1304Ds
Because of the high demand and excitement for OktoberFit, we have decided to open up registration for a few more teams putting the final cap at 50 teams. Late registration will open up on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 8 am. In all fairness to everyone who would like to participate, we cannot cater to requests to reserve open slots. We recommend doing 100 burpees at 7:45 am to warmup and sharpen you browser refreshing skills. Do a few pull-ups just before opening, and then 3-2-1-GO to register your team at 8 am! (Eventbrite will check if you did your 100 burpees. Really.)
You might be saying, "WTF? 50 TEAMS?!! That's crazy. We're going to be waiting forever-and-a-day for our heat times..." Yes we are crazy by the way, but don't you worry. We are Silicon Valley, and appropriately we innovate and PR everyday! We have come up with a way that changes the game on how throwdowns are operated, pipelining heat times, and efficiently utilizing our facility with the help of our awesome volunteers. We are unsure if this has ever been attempted before, but in any case it's going be to an amazing experience with blistering non-stop action everywhere! Teams will have 1 hour between workouts, and we are extending hours on the biergarten for an extra hour after the awards ceremony so you can afterparty... are you ready for OktoberFit?!
More details on how we throwdown at SV once final registration closes. (And no, we're not going 50-teams at once. haha.)
OktoberFit Movement Standards 3: LBJ, C2B, WF-HSPU, and DU's
Your last chance for team registration for OktoberFit is in 8 hours. Space is extremely limited, so we recommend logging on and hitting the refresh button as fast as your DU's right at 8 am!
We have teamed up with Wehaveus! for OktoberFit event photography! Look out for them behind the camera! Have your pictures taken during the event and leave with something to remember the good times at CrossFit Silicon Valley!
