Every year the CrossFit community joins together on a single day to perform this workout for charity. Participants can register and raise money for the benefitting charities. If the participating athlete raises $150 or more, the athlete gets a commemorative T-shirt. Raise $500 or more and receive a commemorative hoodie. The gym that raises the most money regionally and nationally gets a prize package from event sponsors. Please note: REGISTRATION AND DONATION ARE NOT REQUIRED FOR EVENT PARTICIPATION.

The charities benefitting from this year’s FGB 6 event are Special Operation Warrior Foundation, CrossFit Kids, and Camp Patriot. The Special Operations Warrior Foundation provides full scholarship grants and educational and family counseling to the surviving children of special operations personnel who die in operational or training missions and immediate financial assistance to severely wounded special operations personnel and their families. CrossFit Kids has teamed up with Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) to provide free swim lessons to prevent pediatric drowning so that Not One More Child Drowns. Camp Patriot exists to take Disabled U.S. Veterans on Outdoor Adventures, such as hunting, fishing, and hiking activities.

“Fight Gone Bad” is a workout designed by CrossFit creator, Greg Glassman, for MMA Fighter BJ Penn.  This conditioning exercise was designed to mimic the three, 5 min rounds of an MMA match.  During “Fight Gone Bad” the athlete spends one minute at each of these 5 stations:

Wall Ball

 Box Jump

Sumo Deadlift High Pull

Push Press

Row (for calories)

After five minutes, there is one minute rest before another round.  The workout takes a total of 17minutes to complete and is scored by the number of repetitions performed.  (FYI, The magic number is 300 reps or better to be considered “elite” by CF standards OR you could just take your shirt off and cuss a lot.)  Kidding aside, we will set up a men’s RX’d lane, ladies RX’d lane and a few modified lanes for those who don’t want to do prescribed weights and movements.
