Garage Games Milford
It’s not to late to sign up for the Team competition in Milford, Ct. We already have one team signed up but could use some more representation. Anyone that has ever competed in a team event knows how much fun they can be. There aren’t to many of these that come around so sign up and make the road trip down with us. Here is some more info…
The New England Team Throwdown is going to be a weekend that no CrossFitter, athlete, or spectator will want to miss. The team events are picking up steam like a run away bull, and the exposure and practice that this event will provide to each gym will be an invaluable experience. This event will be held at CrossFit Milford and will provide five workouts over the span of two days. Each workout will be challenging in all aspects of fitness, but also team strategy and unity. Each person will have to compete in each event, and there will be a strategy component to truly test how well of a machine each gym is working with. This is the perfect opportunity to compete against the best teams in the Northeast, and some of the best teams in the world. There will be no better stomping ground then those at CrossFit MIlford.

Garage Games CrossFit Southie
On November 12th and 13th CrossFit Southie will be hosting the New England Finals; an individual competition to complete the first ever 3-part Northeast Garage Games Series. Located in what was once considered the “hardest” area of Boston, CrossFit Southie occupies two 4,000 square foot industrial buildings that were originally cannon factories in the late 1800s. The buildings have been restored since, but they still carry a thick industrial feel. CrossFit Southie is located close to Copley Square, the Boston Seaport, and Downtown Boston. There are plenty of places to stay and lots to see if you deicide to make a trip out of the event.
The two-day competition is designed for competitors new to CrossFit, fire-breathers, and everyone in between. It is a last chance to compete hard in the crisp fall air before the winter rolls in. There will be 5 events in the two days. The final results will crown the most well-rounded individuals. The RX athletes need to be proficient in moving 95/65lbs through all traditional barbell variations, and must be able to do unassisted pull-ups. The scaled division must be proficient in moving 65/45lbs through all traditional barbell variations, and must be able to execute pull-ups with a medium sized band (typically they are blue or purple). This is a great first time competition, but will also please the veterans. We hope that you will join the fun!
