Friday 9/1/17

With the summer sadly coming to an end we're putting August behind us and moving on to September. We have updated our Monthly Challenge Series and this month we’re going to be preparing for that long winter ahead of us. We're challenging people by asking a simple question - how far can you row in a month? Before workouts, after workouts, during open gym...it’s all fair game except for any rowing that is completed as part of our daily class workouts.

To make this challenge a bit more interesting...and because I genuinely want to know how far everyone can row in a month, we will be setting up a leader board to keep track of everyone's progress through the month. There are a few rules:

  • Any rowing done during a class workout does not count, it can be either before class, after class, or during open gym.
  • Rowing done as part of a workout during open gym is allowed to count as long as it is not making up a workout from a class.
  • There will be a leader board for this challenge and athletes will be responsible for updating their overall tally throughout the month.
  • This challenge is scored by the honor system.
  • Rowing does not need to be done at Strongtown.
  • There will be a prize for the top male & female rowers.
