My first CrossFit charity workout was in early September of last year and I joined with a box right down the road from my house. I’d never done it before, but had been training on my own prior, I had also never met the people at that facility – so everything was BRAND new to me. My CrossFitting friend from Virginia came to town to visit that weekend and we went up early Saturday morning to particpate and endure the pain of this workout, it was done for fun and in the name of a good cause. I was able to raise some last minute money and donate it to the box who passed it along to The Special Ops. Warrior Foundation. I made a video to remember the experience and there was also a photographer there at the time – so we were able to get a lot of great pics while we were busy working out or counting for our partner.

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The event is in the 3 round format. The stations are:
- Wall-ball: 20 pound ball, 10 ft target. (Reps)
- Sumo deadlift high-pull: 75 pounds (Reps)
- Box Jump: 20″ box (Reps)
- Push-press: 75 pounds (Reps)
- Row: calories (Calories)
The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Fight Gone Bad began as a fundraising event in 2006. From those humble beginnings and with the support of the CrossFit community, we’ve proven what a small, totally committed group of people can accomplish. The first five editions of Fight Gone Bad have raised a combined total of more than $4 million.
