This year we are putting on this event as a fun community event! No judges, just fun with amazing people and hard workouts! The 12 Wods of Christmas is an amaizing team event, wherein the four team members work to complete 12 classic benchmark workouts, The workouts are broken up into three Rounds, with each Round containing four workouts.
Round 1: Helen, Fran, Nancy, Jackie.
Round 2: DT, Grace, Angie, Diane
Round 3: Karen, Nasty Girls, Isabel, Elizabeth
*In the RX Division:
The Rx Division is traditionally composed of two Men & two Women, but any combination of four will work. To complete the workouts, two athletes begin by taking turns until they complete "Helen". Immediately after the first two athletes complete "Helen", any two athletes work to complete "Fran"; this repeats for "Nancy" & "Jackie".
Each person competes in two workouts every round. You must strategize for each round which two workouts will be best for each individual athlete. Over three Rounds each individual will work to complete 6 total workouts. You may mix and match athletes however you wish between the workouts, you do not need to stick with the same pairs of people.
*In the Fun Division: all four athletes may work together to complete the workouts, with one athlete working at a time. The Fun Division can be any team of 4 and teams can scale the workouts as they wish. For Instance, Pull-ups may be subbed out for Kettlebell Swings or Burpees. If you want to make it more challenging, stick to the RX rule of only two athletes per workout. For Fun Division you can choose to "up-scale" to Rx weights and movement standards.
For Entry Fee we are asking each team to bring a donation for a charity (See Below) and a small entry fee to cover expenses ($40/team). Entry Fee go up to $45 for Late Registration. Bring a potluck dish of your favorite seasonal dish to share your cooking talents!

We need your help! We are partnering with Wind Youth Services:
“Our mission is to engage youth experiencing homelessness who need safety from the streets and access to resources to help them move from crisis to healthy functioning and independence.”
They work with street involved/homeless youth ages 15-25 in Sacramento. To be festive for the 12 WODs lets all bring gifts to help these youth!
Please bring one or more of these items unwrapped:
• Men’s/Women’s socks
• Men’s/Women’s underwear
• Warm clothing
• Individual packets of hot chocolate & apple cider
• Non-perishable snacks (granola bars, fruit snacks, etc.)
These may not be the most glamorous of gifts BUT they are so very needed!
