FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHT - LOGISTICS What to expect...
Watch the announcement at games.crossfit.com on Thursday night at 8pm. Make sure to also watch the standards video and understand the Scaling options if those apply to you.
Around 10am on Friday we will announce the heat times on the FNL Facebook event page. If you wish to sign up for a particular heat, they are first come first serve. You may come by the gym in person or call the main number to request a heat. 912-335-3615. Requests will NOT be accepted via Facebook, email, or texts.
The gym will stay open all day. Many competitors will be doing the workout around noon. Feel free to watch, cheer, and strategize. They are allowed to go early because they are coming back to JUDGE.
From 1:30 to 4:30 we will be setting up. Feel free to come help.
At 4 you may come in to start moving around and warming up if you are in the the first heat. No working out between 1:30 and 4.
WHEN YOU ARRIVE:
1.) You must check in. If you have not reserved a heat, you will be assigned one at check-in.
2.) Wear your team jersey.
3.) Leave as much of your personal belongings in your car as possible. Only bring in what you need.
Space will be seriously limited. ALL belonging will have a dedicated area (it may change from week to
4.) Check in with your team coach. He/She will have warm-up instructions for you and can help with
strategy and skill work.
5.) Turn in your team score card.
There will be a designated warm-up area and bull-pin area. Only athletes in the current heat are allowed on the competition floor. Check into the bull-pin no less than 10 minutes before your heat time starts.
Crush the Workout! Remember the judges are volunteers too. They are there to uphold the standards for those submitting scores to crossfit.com and to ensure fair scoring for everyone. Arguing with a judge will immediately invalidate your score and loose points for your team.
Stay for the party! It will take a few minutes to determine team winners, etc. We appreciated everyone staying to help clean up!
Submit your score online if you are registered for the Open. Shout out to your team - #cfhpfnl.
CHANGES COMING TO WBBC….New Name, More Awesomeness
We’re excited to announce that WBBC Savannah is getting a facelift. The new 8-week program is called The Squad Savannah and is perfect for new athletes needing to learn movements, change nutrition habits, and build more endurance before starting Crossfit programming. The next Squad will start on March 5th and meet THREE TIMES per week. The cost is $299 for the 8 week program. Please help us spread the news!
PROGRAMMING THIS WEEK
Now that the Open is here, you’ll see a few changes to programming layout in class. Look for this format for the next couple of weeks:
There is a lot of work to get done on Mon, Tues, and Wed. Thursday should be a light/rest day for everyone doing FNL. Thursday will be more aerobic/partner workout for everyone who comes to class. Friday morning classes will feature a modified version of the Open workout.
Because we know that there will be no running in the Open expect to see more of that during the daily WODs. (And because it’s beautiful this week!) That way we are not going to over-do something like a row which may show up on Friday.
The FNL event does not count as a class for those of you with 2 or 3x per week memberships. It’s bonus :)
I know this is a long update! Remember we are here for any questions you have. Make sure to see your primary coach early in the week for skills you need to brush up on.
