14 June 2016 – It's time to Battle!

We are very excited to announce that we will be taking part in the London Box Battles! Our first battle is a team competition against CrossFit Central London on Saturday 16 July at 2.30 pm.

What is the London Box Battles?

The London Box Battles is a league-style CrossFit competition involving boxes in and around London. With Beginner (Group C), Intermediate (Group B) and Advanced (Group A) divisions, this is a great competition for all levels of athlete, not to mention a great way to meet athletes from other boxes! 

What are the key details for our competition?

We will be going up against CrossFit Central London on Saturday 16 July at 2.30 pm. This round will be a same sex, partner competition, with a max of 15 teams from each box. Central London will be hosting the event, so any participating athletes will need to arrange travel to their gym. 

What are the WODs?

The WODs for this round have just been announced on the London Box Battles Website. You can find the WODs here. You and your partner must be participating in the same division. Not sure which division you should be in? Ask a coach for advice!

How do I register?

There is a registration fee of £30 per team. To participate, your team will need to register via the London Box Battles Registration page, here. This fee goes towards the prizes for the overall division winners and a BBQ after the event.

We will also have a sign-up sheet at the box - if you want to participate but don't have a partner, put your name down with the group you would like to compete in and we will match you up! NB putting your name on the sign-up sheet does not register you for the competition! You still need to register via the London Box Battles page.

Please email Coach Maria if you have any questions and see you all on the battlefield!
