Fall Contest FAQ: 10/18-10/20

The Fall Contest consists of three hard-core (or should we say hard-Corps) workouts in three days!

Q: When is the fall contest?
A: Friday 10/18. Saturday 10/19 and Sunday 10/20.  3 workouts in 3 days, like a mini-Hero Week:

  • Friday at the end of FNL – incorporated into 5:30 class
  • Saturday afternoon – individual time slots starting in 10-minute intervals
  • Sunday at 3:30 PM – group workout / format


Q: What do you mean by 10-minute intervals?
A: Participants sign up for start times offset by 10 minutes.  Get there ahead of your start time to warm up on your own, set up and otherwise figure out what you’re doing.  The workout may last longer than 10 minutes, but start times are staggered in order to effectively track all participants.  Since earlier participants will still be working when you are starting, there will not be individual instruction for the movements, etc on Saturday.

Q: How advanced do I need to be to participate?
A: For Friday and Sunday, you’re expected to have a basic knowledge of all movements and formats.  These will be more CrossFit style workouts (think Hero Week): AMRAP / timed / #reps, etc.  Some instruction will be provided.  For Saturday, no individual instruction will be given.  You are expected to know the format and movements based on the written workout.  Choose a weight, warm up, etc on your own.  Timing and motivation will be provided.

Q: Can you clarify workout #2 (Saturday) again?
A: *Workout #2 is an individual workout, with little to no supervision, instruction. If you sign up, you should be proficient in all exercises. Competent in reading/understanding a workout written on a whiteboard. Confident in getting yourself set-up, ready to go. The time you sign-up for is the start time. Arrive early to understand the workout, get equipment set up, and get warmed up.*

Q: Do I need to sign up?  How?
A: A sign-up sheet for Saturday start times is on the whiteboard by the smokehouse.  You do not need to sign up separately for the Friday and Sunday workouts.  Friday will be part of the 5:30 PM class, and Sunday 3:30 just show up and be ready to work out at 3:30 as you would be for a typical class.

Q: Are the regular classes still running on Saturday and Sunday?
A: Yes, Saturday 8:30 AM, Sunday 8 AM and Sunday 1 PM classes are not affected and will be held per the normal schedule.
