Please all have a read through this article, lovingly entitled Not Being A Dick :)

 

This Saturday (12th March) CrossFit Leeds will be hosting the last leg of a 24hour charity workout at Fitness First, Kirkstall Rd. Dylan Noble and Fynn Cook are attempting a 24hr fitness challenge to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK and the final half hour of their challenge will be a 30 minute CrossFit WOD! It'd be great to see as many of you there as possible representing us. Entry to Fitness First will be free and donations to the charity will be being taken on the day or you can sponsor the two guys for their massive effort here. Their challenge runs from 2pm Friday until 2pm Saturday and the CrossFit WOD will be at 1.30pm. Please aim to be at Fitness First for 1.15pm at the latest. See you all there.

The CrossFit Games Open site is now live.

We are encouraging all our athletes to take part in the CrossFit Games Open. Whether it be as a serious competitor or to provide you with some extra motivation in your training everyone can benefit in some way from competing. Here's a great article from CrossFit LA's Andy Petranek on why you need to get involved. Registration is now open for individuals, and CrossFit Leeds has also put an affiliate team forward. Once you have registered go to this link to join the CrossFit Leeds team.

Ask Mike if you have any questions about the CrossFit Games Open.
