Hi guys! More yummy food posts coming soon, but I would like to take a minute to tell you about the Fight Gone Bad 6 event happening all over the world on September 17.
On Saturday, September 17, CrossFitters around the world will come together to endure 17 minutes of one of our most grueling workouts in honor of the incredible men and women who have committed their lives to serving our country. For 17 minutes, we will push ourselves further, challenge ourselves deeper, feel the doubt and wonder if we can make it, but then remember why we are there and appreciate fully those who we are there to honor.
I’ll be doing Fight Gone Bad for the first time this year in Las Vegas, NV, and I would be incredibly grateful of your support in this endeavor. I’m shooting to raise $500+ for the event.
Raised funds are pledged to provide full college scholarships for the children of fallen soldiers, and every little bit helps. If you have the ability to support this cause, you can make a real and meaningful impact on two phenomenal organizations (Special Operations Warrior Foundation and CrossFit Foundation) that provide immediate and measurable support to families needing it most.

The Fight Gone Bad 6 Workout
In this workout, athletes rotate through five stations of different challenges. The competition is done in five rounds, with each athlete spending 1 minute per station per round with a 1 minute rest between rounds, all for a total of three rounds. 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 a good score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
Will you support my 17 minutes?
