24 Nov 2016 – Vote for your Golden Kettlebell of the Year Awards


To celebrate the end of our Christmas Crackers and the culmination of yet another awesome year at CrossFit 1864, we will be presenting our annual Golden Kettlebell Awards at our Christmas party. 

There are six categories for the 2016 Golden Kettlebell Awards, and we would like you Crazy Ones to vote for a male and female athlete who you think has well and truly earned each Award…


Best Pain Face, Male & Female
Whether it’s the mobility pain face, the hitting a new PB pain face, the eek-ing out the last rep of a brutal WOD pain face... Andreea and Dutch have some serious competition this year!

Best Banter, Male & Female
The Best Banter Award goes beyond the casual ‘snatch’ joke. Who is the athlete that always has the best quip, at any part of the session? Who always makes you laugh, no matter how badly you want to cry during a WOD?

The Lost One, Male & Female
They might have been here for aaaaaages, but they still haven’t quite figured out how to count their reps, where they should do their wall balls, or when they should go out for a run. Bless their cotton socks.

Best WOD Wardrobe, Male & Female
You know when you see this athlete saunter in to the gym, they’ll be lookin’ the bizness. Dressed head-to-toe in the newest attire, or wearing one of their MANY pairs of trainers, you can always count on this guy and girl to be dressed for success.

Most Improved, Male & Female
This is the athlete that has put in the time, put in the effort, made the sacrifices, made the commitment and, as a result, has improved drastically since they started. It might be through weight loss, improved technique in their lifts and gymnastics, or simply smashing WODs that used to leave them in a ball on the floor. Who’s your pick?

Most Supportive, Male & Female
Who can you count on to shout for you during a WOD, to encourage you to go for that final lift, to be the first one to high five you after a session, or the first one to shake your hand and say hello when you walk in to the gym?

We will be sending out an email from Survey Monkey for you to vote for your favourites for each category, or you can also submit your ballot at the gym. We will need everyone's replies by 6 December!
