The Six Weeks to Summer Challenge is basically over. By now, you've taken your after picture and all that's left is to take on Helen one more time. So what's the gonna look like? Well, here's the down low:
Class on this Saturday are cancelled as this is the day of the Challenge finals. Doors open at 9:30 AM and the first heat will begin at 10 AM sharp. There will be a suggested warm up on the board, but you can warm up in any way you want. After 10 AM, heats will start about every 20 minutes until there's no one left to do Helen. The last heat will begin around 12 PM and the winners will be announced around 12:45PM (1PM at the latest). If you didn't participate in the Challenge, don't worry! Come by, spectate, and cheer your fellow CF818ers on and get a taste of what the Challenges are like.
Don't forget that the Challenge Finals/CF818 1 Year Anniversary Party is Saturday afternoon from 3-7PM at Spitz in Little Tokyo (371 E 2nd St Los Angeles, CA 90012). It's open to everybody from the gym, whether you participated in the Challenge or not, so come by and celebrate how awesome you all are!
I've gotta say, I'm really excited about the prizes for this Challenge's winners. Here's a reminder about winners: there will be 4 Most Improved winners (chosen based on before/after pictures, and percentage improvement in Helen), 1 Fastest Male RX Helen time, 1 Fastest Female RX Helen time, and a Spirit of the Challenge winner. We've got some sweet prizes from our friends at Stronger Faster Healthier and Lululemon at the Americana for our big winners...and that's on top of cash prizes!
Couple of suggestions: make sure to hydrate a ton today and tomorrow. If you wait until Saturday morning to start hydrating, it's too late. Get a lot of sleep between now and Saturday so your body is well rested. If you're planning on working out today or Friday, don't be afraid to scale the WOD down in order to save some juice for your Helen.
