What time does the comp start?
The doors will open at 8.30am in preparations for the briefing at 9am. There are 4 workouts, 2 before lunch and 2 after. We aim to be wrapped up (and ready to have a beer) by 4pm.
Can I bring my adoring fans to spectate?
Yep. More the merrier. All spectators are free. It’s hard enough to frag your loved ones down to watch you be a CrossFit w****r , they shouldn’t have to pay too.
Is there parking available?
The gyms address is:
CrossFit Northern Soul
The mill’s car park will be open from 8am-4.30pm and is free. There is also roadside parking’s around the gym but keep a keen eye out for the permit only areas.
I’m always hangry. Will there be food?
Food will be available throughout the day from The Prep Station Ltd. Delicious homemade food perfect for fuelling CrossFit comps, dance offs and hard-core spectating. Hot and cold drinks, protein cookies and bars are also available. Please bring cash to help speed up the process and to prevent hanger setting in.
What happens if I can’t reach the movement standards required?
We believe that competitions should be for anyone and everyone. If you can’t do a movement, we will give you a scalable option that is either equivalent to the full standards or you will take a rep or time penalty. Either way you will get sweaty, work hard and have fun.
What prizes do we get for our graft?
We have a selection of brilliant (ish) prizes for our winners. The team who podiumed in our last comp received a huge meat pie. I’m not sure how we’ll top that!
I will want to remember this competition forever and be proud of being part of the G&G squad. How can I do this?
You are in luck, we have awesome Graft and Gravy T-shirts available to buy before the comp or on the day!!!!
