CrossFit RedZone in Newtown, CT is starting a fundraiser to support the town, families, and community of Newtown after devastating event. All money raised will be going towards the Sandy Hook PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association). Kurt and Kris Kling, owners of CrossFit RedZone, grew up and still reside in Newtown and are looking to the CrossFit Community for help and support. We know our CrossFit family in vast and strong and any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
Donations made to this event will go towards supporting the families of victims and the rebuilding of the community. Helping families with counseling, service, memorials, and funeral costs. Also helping the community with replacing/rebuilding or what ever may be the plan for Sandy Hook Elementary School, and starting a scholarship fund to support the children Sandy Hook Elementary.
If you would like to donate please go here.
We will be performing the same partner workout CrossFit RedZone and other CrossFit affiliates will be participating in during the Sunday morning 11am class for those of you who would like to join. The workout is below.
The WOD: Partner WOD
10 minute AMRAP
10 Kettlebell Swings
Only one partner will be moving at a time and cannot advance to the next movement until both partners have completed the movement. For example Partner A does their 10 Thrusters then partner B does their 10 thruster, then they move on. It does not matter who does the movement first so if partner A starts the thrusters it does not mean they need to start for the burpees.
Weights and standards:
Thrusters= 95 pounds for men/ 65 pounds for women
Burpees= Chest must make contact with the floor and the way down and feet must leave the ground at top position with hands above head
Kettlebell swings= 53 for men/ 35 for women
Thrusters: 75 pounds for men/ 45 for women
Burpees= Same as RX
Kettlebell swings= 35 for men/ 26 for women
CO-ED Teams: will do weights as described above just will have two sets of weights.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Partners must be either both RX or both scaled, there will be no teams with one athlete RX and the other scaled.Read MoreRead More
