BENEFITING: BROOKLYN COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
EVENT: Fight Gone Bad 2013
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2013
The time has come. Fight Gone Bad 2013 is here! As you may know, I've been a member/athlete at CrossFit South Brooklyn for almost four years now. CFSBK is a place I not only spend time getting strong and working out, but also a true community and home for me where I've cultivated some great friendships.
I'm now in deep even further: I work at CFSBK's front desk a few times a week and have started a Yoga for Athletes program for members and non-members of the gym!!
Anyway, since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted this yearly fundraiser called Fight Gone Bad. In the past we've raised funds to serve such charities as Wounded Warrior Project and LiveStrong. For the second year in a row, we are keeping our support local and will be raising funds for the Brooklyn Community Foundation who is dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking and community service.
So what exactly is Fight Gone Bad, you ask? It's a pretty grueling, sort of insane 17 minute workout, designed to simulate the time domain of a mixed martial arts bout of five minutes of work followed by one minute of rest. It's challenging. It hurts. It feels really awesome when you're done.
Fight Gone Bad
Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20/14lb, 10ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75/55 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20" box (Reps)
Push-press, 75/55 pounds (Reps)
In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of "rotate", the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
So... I'm asking you to help me support the place I've called home for over four years now: Brooklyn! My request is that you take two minutes to donate whatever you can to my page, where all funds will go to the Brooklyn Community Foundation. I set my fundraising goal relatively high. At the end of the day, it's a big group effort at our gym, every little bit counts, and I will be more than grateful and appreciative for whatever you can give... no amount is too small!
