It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We are excited to announce the 9th annual Reindeer Games. For those of you familiar with our Games, you know it is a fun-filled week, beginning Monday, December 10th, and ending Friday, December 14th. For those of you new to the gym, here is a little background on our annual all-gym competition.
As in the past, the Reindeer Games will pose a change to our regular programming. Instead of each class including a Strength and a WOD, each class will consist of two short workouts named after Santa’s reindeer. Athletes will compete as a part of a team and/or individually in either Rx or Scaled divisions, across various age groups for a chance to win some prizes. Prizes will be awarded on Sat., Dec. 15th, at our annual Holiday Party at the Lohmanns’ home.
Ways to Compete
Individual Competition. The Reindeer Games is a week-long all-gym competition. Athletes are separated into various age groups by gender and have the opportunity to compete in either “Rx” or “Scaled” divisions. Here are this year’s age groups:
- 34 & Under
- 46 & Up (Master’s)
Team Competition. Aside from competing individually against one another, athletes are encouraged to pledge their allegiance to a particular class time as our different classes compete against one another in a team competition. Members are able to choose from the following teams:
- The Dawn Patrol (5:30 a.m.)
- The Social Hour (9 a.m.)
- The Nooners (12 p.m.)
- The Library (4:30 p.m.)
- The Happy Hour (5:30 p.m.)
Here are the rules for this year’s Reindeer Games:
- Every day this week we will complete two short WODs inspired by Santa’s reindeer.
- The coach in charge will explain each workout and its standards for the “Rx”, “Scaled”, and “Masters” divisions.
- Men and women will compete against one another in their respective age divisions.
- Athletes will complete each workout with a counter to ensure that all reps are performed to standard. The counter will fill out the workout sheets and tabulate the athlete’s final score/time. Sheets must be turned in after the given class period in order for the score to count.
- Athletes may make up missed workouts; however, they must complete the workouts listed on the whiteboard for that day and thendo the workouts that were missed, essentially completing 4 workouts in one day.
- For those athletes who may tie in a workout, the tie-breaker goes to whichever athlete performed the workout first. For example, if two athletes, one from the 5:30 a.m. class and one from the 4:30 p.m. class received the same score, the tie-breaker would go to the athlete who performed the workout at 5:30 a.m.
- Scores from the previous day will be posted the following day by 3 p.m. Please be patient as the scoring process is time-consuming. NOTE: Those scores posted may change as athletes complete missed workouts.
- Have fun!
