The London Box Battles are about to commence with 14 London based CrossFit boxes successfully registered for the 2014 season.
The London Box Battles has been designed as a friendly grassroots fitness league allowing athletes of all fitness levels to compete. In 2014 we are planning to hold 4 separate battles hosted by the local London CrossFit affiliates.
Welcoming Athletes of all abilities
The competition will be split into 3 different scales of WODS to allow athletes of all levels to compete against others of the same ability.
|Group A – Crossfit Athletes||Group B – General CrossFitters||Group C – CrossFitters with less than 1 year experience|
|Deadlift for reps: M140kg F:100kg
Snatch for reps: M60kg F:40kg
|Athletes with more than 12months experience and not at the level of Group A||Athletes with less than 12months experiences|
Note: Each hosting box can negotiate the levels. This is a general guide.
Battle 1 of 4
The hosting boxes for the first battle will be:
|Host: CrossFit South London
|Host: Momentum Training (CrossFit Hackney)
|Host: CrossFit London
CrossFit North London
|Host: CrossFit Bold
CrossFit Central London
|Host: CrossFit Blackfriars
Battle Sunbury Performance CrossFit
|Host: CrossFit Evolving
|Host: CrossFit P360
The first round of battle’s will take place on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of April (the hosting boxes will decide which day/time suits them).
Battle 1 will require teams of 2 same sex athletes (2 guys, or 2 girls)
Number of Competitors
Group A - maximum of 2 male teams / 2 female teams from each box (8 athletes in total)
Group B - maximum 10 teams from each box (boxes discretion on how many m/f teams) (20 athletes in total)
Group C - maximum 4 teams (each box can decide how many m/f teams) (8 athletes in total)
* Note: Do not worry if you box cannot fill all teams. This is simply the maximum limit of athlete that could compete form each box. We appreciate that many of the boxes in London are less than 2years old and may not have the membership base to field the all teams. We also appreciate the floor space at each hosting box may not cater for the volume. Each paired box will need to agree on maximum numbers for each event.
3 WOD’s will be designed to test each group’s level of fitness. The WODS will be scaled to suit the level of each group.
The 3 WODS will be announced on Friday 4th April.
The WODS will be the same at all hosting boxes.
Once all 3 WODS are completed the best performing team from each paired box will throwdown in a final WOD. This WOD will have bonus point for the league ladder and give an awesome final atmosphere at each event.
There will be a winning box at each hosted location
The scorecards from each box will be submitted and an overall league ladder will be created to show which box has the best performing athletes across all levels. It is NOT solely about the elite athletes, the scores will be calculated across all three groups and the box with the best average will come out on top.
End of Year Winner
The scores from all 4 events hosted in 2014 will be collaborated to order the 2014 ladder. The winning box will receive The London Box Battles trophy and keep it in their position until the end of the 2015 competition.
