United For Youth - Have You Registered?

A little over a month ago, we announced that  Saturday, November 8th we will be hosting the fundraiser "United for Youth"  benefiting the Westside Athletes Association - a new non-profit organization born from the awesome creative minds of United Barbell members.  This event will be both open to UBers and non UBers as well as be hosted at other gyms across the Bay Area!

Well, we have a little over 1 month left and we are 1/2 way to our goal!  If you haven't registered yet - stop what you are doing and register.  If you want to participate in the day you must follow the link and sign up!!

The Details

In case you missed this post the first time around, here is what you need to know.  The workout, you may have guessed, will be Fight Gone Bad!  Here is what you need to know to participate in the day:

The Cause

Westside Athletes Association is a new non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of at-risk teenagers by providing CrossFit scholarships and support in cultivating healthy lifestyle habits.


For those of you who have not yet had the joy of experiencing a Fight Gone Bad workout.  Here is what you will be conquering:

Fight Gone Bad

3 rounds of AMRepsAP in 1 minute:

  • Wall-balls (20# | 14#)
  • Sumo deadlift high-pulls (75# | 55#)
  • Box Jumps (20")
  • Push-press (75# | 55#)
  • Row (Cals)
  • 1 minute rest between rounds

Your score is the collective total of reps from all three rounds.

The Day

This will be United Barbell's first event open to the public!  That said, this day will run a little different than it has in the past.  There will be no regular classes.

Athletes will check in at 8am, be briefed at 8:30am, and the first heat beginning at 9am and the last heat at 1pm.  Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 male and female competitors at the end of the day.

We are requesting all participants raise at least $50 dollars (and will receive a shirt as a thank you).  Another prize (TBA) will be given to individuals raising at least $500.  There will also be a prize for the top fundraising individual, as well as the top fundraising gym, so let's show UB's pride and get after it!

To start your fundraising efforts, check out the Fundly page, select "join this team", and then click "become a fundraiser."

Westside Athletes and UB are looking for volunteers to help judge the event and keep our first public event as smooth as possible - please give me a shout out or post to the comments if you would like to volunteer.
