Detroit - Rookie Rumble
Saturday April 22nd, 2017


Are you new to all of this functional movement performed at high intensity? Have you ever done a competition before? Are you coming off your very first Open? Well, this event is for you!

This will be a partner event with two divisions:
“Full Rookie” Division. Two “Rookies” get together and form a team. This can be male-male or female-female.
“Pro-Am” Division. This is where two people form a team where one person has been around the block and has more experience, but the other person is fairly new to all of this stuff. (again, male-male or female-female teams ONLY)

Now, how do we define “Rookie”? Some people define this by how long they have been working out at high intensity. This is a good start, but it’s not a perfect test. There are people that walk into a gym and hit multiple muscle ups on day one. There are also people that have been around a gym for a year or two and may still be working on some of their skills.

The bottom line is you know if you are a “Rookie” or not. If you are someone that is still working RX weights for many of the named “Girl” WODs, if double unders still seem to get the best of you, pull ups might not be your thing yet… these are some things that mean that you are still new to all of this. On the other hand, if you are able to hit all of the named Girl WODs at RX weights, if you can butterfly your pull ups together, if you can do 90% of what gets written on your whiteboard as it is written…. you’re in the “PRO” category.

Programming will be written to be challenging, but approachable. Don’t expect to run into any “sticking points”.

T-shirts are included in the price of registration. Registration Closes two weeks prior or when event sells out (whichever comes first).

There will be one written movement standard for this event, but scaling will be allowed. If you do scale a movement your team is just eliminated from prizes.
