Confidence has no Competition
A slightly biased view of CFDC’s competitive programming
Hard to believe that CrossFit DC’s Competitive Program is coming up on it’s third year of existence! Each year we continue to receive great feed back on the structure and balance of the program. Of course, we also get questions – lot’s of questions!
Our goal with the competitive program has been two fold:
(1) to give members, who have jobs and lives outside of the gym, access to quality competition based training which steadily builds throughout the year (read: “not-just-hero-workouts”);
(2) to ensure consistent improvement across all aspects of CrossFit while still having fun.
Whether you looking to build upon your success in the Open, or looking to make that leap towards Regionals, our competitive program will help you take your first steps in the right direction, and there’s no better time than right now!
We offer two tracks of Competitive Programming: “Leash” and “Cage” (because there are some animals you don’t let off the leash, and some you don’t even bother letting out of the cage).
OK, so corny monikers aside, what’s the difference? Check out the descriptions below:
“Leash” Competitors Group
“Cage” Competitors Group
As mentioned above, members must test-in for both tracks. The test-in workouts are designed to ensure that athletes are generally capable of meeting the guidelines above, and athletes will be judged on their ability to not only complete the exercises, but to hold themselves to the standards of movement specified at the outset of the workout.
CrossFit DC currently has four test-in workouts planned over the next 4 months, with a choice of either Saturday or Sunday during a given weekend:

Of course, participation in the Competitor’s Program is NOT a prerequisite for competing! Quite the opposite. In fact, a large number of those CFDCers who regularly participate in a variety of local competitions during 2015-2016 were not enrolled in our Competitors program. Our competition programs are aimed at those who simply want a little more and are up to the task of handling a little extra volume.
Interested? Then don’t hesitate to sign-up! Until then, see you in the gym.
