08 Dec 2018 - "Hope" for the Holidays

The final Christmas Cracker is finally here! Congrats to everyone who has taken part in our Challenge and to everyone who has completed all of the Crackers so far!

As mentioned, we will be running "Hope" in heats, just like we have done with previous Throwdowns, Open workouts, Whizz's last WOD, etc. 

You can sign up for your heat here:

Hope for the Holidays Heat Sheet

The heats will be running every 20 minutes, starting at 8 am (I know some of you needed to come in early to get the workout in!) and finishing at 11.40 am. Please make sure you arrive early to warm up and you are able to stick around to judge the heat after yours (and cheer on the other athletes taking on this gassy workout!).

Remember to sign up for our Festive Shindig at Filthy Fanny's in the Crown & Shuttle Pub! 
After "Hope" is done and dusted, we'll be headed to Shoreditch to party the night away, celebrate another awesome year of gainz, present our Golden Kettlebell Awards and the prizes to our athletes that completed all 12 Crackers. 

And most importantly, don't forget to bring in your toy for our toy drive! All you need to do is bring your toy in to the box and we'll take care of the rest!

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow!
