The 2015 CrossFit LiftOff
CrossFit Belltown will be participating in the CrossFit LiftOff this week. Sponsored by Rogue Fitness, this three-event, online competition allows participants to go for personal bests and compete for prizes, bragging rights or just for fun.
HOW TO COMPETE
Similar to the CrossFit Games Open, the CrossFit LiftOff will be held in participating CrossFit affiliates around the world. Athletes can snatch, clean and jerk, and work out in front of a judge and get their scores validated by the affiliate manager. The competition will be divided into two days:
Day One: Thursday Nov 5th at CFBT (7:30pm OLY Class ONLY) ~ Max Snatch and Clean & Jerk
Day Two: Friday Nov 6th at CFBT (all classes) ~ Conditioning workout (TBD)
NOTE: You must register at https://games.crossfit.com/cf/login?returnTo=%2Fliftoff%2Fregister&flow=liftoff if you wish to participate (the cost is $10 to sign up). Please keep in mind you do not need to register for the competition if you only wish to attend our regular ar group classes. However in either case, you must still register for class via MindBody.
COMPETITION RULE BOOK
Unlike any other CrossFit competition, the CrossFit Liftoff will include weight classes!!!
Men – 135/150/165/180/195/210/225/226+
Women – 110/120/130/140/150/160/170/171+
NOTE: The weights are in pounds. A woman who weighs 131lb., for example, would be in the 140lb. weight class. Athletes will have their body weight verified and recorded prior to each event. Body weight will be recorded in whole pounds only (no decimals). These weight classes will not determine the winners of the larger prizes above, but instead are intended as a tool for athletes to see how their scores compare to other athletes of a similar body weight. There are prizes for each weight class, though, too. The three largest overall totals in each weight class in the Open Division will receive a custom leather Rogue weight belt.
*You will need to weigh in at CrossFit Belltown prior to each event.
