We are delighted to announce the return of Battle of the West – the hugely popular beginners competition which will take place on the 12th August 2017.
The event is an individual athletes and will comprise of 70 participants; 35 male and 35 female over a 1 day event.
This competition will be a test of fitness, skill and strength for BEGINNERS, using some of the more basic movements used in CrossFit. This will be similar to a scaled competition, but with lower weight standards, no max effort lifts, and no Olympic Lifting (apart from the final where a power clean MAY be used). This competition will suit a first or second time competitor (providing they haven’t placed in the top 10 in a previous competition). This is NOT suitable for a first time competitor with an athletic background.
Our main aim is to keep all competitors at a similar level, so if you are fairly new to CrossFit but advancing quite quickly, then you will not need a beginners competition starting out.
If you are eager to compete for the first time, but struggling with the weight standards set for scaled competitions, then this is a great starting point.
There will be 3 WODs, with the top competitors making it to the final for a 4th WOD.
This promises to be a unique and fun event and one not to be missed. Places will sell out so book early to avoid disappointment.
