CrossFit comps should really be called Parties in a Box. Here are some AWESOME ones to keep your eyes open for.
CrossFit competitions are a BLAST. Yes, they can be a little scary for people who have never done one, but everyone is AMAZINGLY supportive. Not only that, competitions bring out the very best in CrossFitters… PRs all over the place, people pushing themselves harder than they ever thought possible, and a beautiful camaraderie among all competitors.
The most common thing we hear after a comp is “OMG that was so hard…. But I can’t WAIT for the next one!”.
So, to get everyone pumped up, here are some local CrossFit competitions coming up this fall in Calgary and area…

Here are a few other comps to keep on your radar…
Western Classic at Reebok CrossFit RamsayThis comp usually runs at the end of January, early February. It is a two-day comp that, in past years, has been both mixed-teams and same-sex teams. Who knows what’s in store this year but it is always a really fun comp with both Scaled and Rx divisions. There’s even Master’s divisions for the ‘old fit’ people (I can say that, I’m one of them).
The CrossFit OpenThis is what most CrossFitters spend all year training for. This is the 5-week event starting in the last week of February that allows you to stack yourself up to the worldwide leaderboard. Don’t be overwhelmed - if anything, this is the most inspiring part of the CrossFit season as everyone gets on the Open Train. The Open is known for incredible community support and motivation, PRs, first pull-ups, first muscle ups, and just a whole lot of sweaty fun. Get ready, because once February is here, the only question everyone asks is “Are you doing the Open?” And, saving the best for last...
The 2019 Southside Brawl...

We have cash prizes for the top 3 Rx teams and amazing prizes for the Scaled teams. So pick one, step our of your comfort zone, and register! Trust us… you will have the best time ever.
