Why FGB?

Don't forget to sign up for Fight Gone Bad! 

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You hear that from your coaches. You're like, sure, maybe. And then you just don't. It's not that you don't want to do it, but maybe it's a little like that. Well I'm here to tell you to actually do it. In fact why don't you scroll up and write your name in the box above. Go ahead. I'll wait.

Ok, you back? Here's why you're glad you just did that:

1. You will get a Fight Gone Bad score.
Why is this something that you want? Because along with Fran, it's what other CrossFitters want to know when they find out you're in their tribe.  It's also an excellent benchmark. Maybe the first time you do FGB, you get a score that is under 200. Then maybe, like Coach Jo, after a lot of hard work you break into the mid 300's. That is a HUGE accomplishment.

2. You will have a fun time
You usually roll in for an hour, get your workout, and leave. Maybe you hang with your WOD besties after hours, but did you know there are well over 200 members of UB, zero percent of whom are sucky people? Come meet the people that work out at different times than you do. Bring your significant other if they don't already WOD with you. Or maybe meet your next significant other? Winky face.

3. You'll get in your Saturday workout
Even if you hate the WOD and you hate fun, you can't hate getting your Saturday workout in. You don't need to fundraise if you don't want to - just sign up and we'll get you in a heat. BOOM - suddenly your weekend isn't a writeoff.

4. You will either spend no money, or you will contribute to an amazing cause.
Seriously, you don't have to fundraise. But if you choose to, you will be contributing to Crossroads Adaptive Athletic Alliance, a 501(c)3 who is driving inclusivity or adaptive athletes in training, competition, and sports. This is an organization that deserves your support.
