Fight Gone Bad is a Crossfit benchmark workout, our gym organizes this group workout once a year. Always near Halloween, and we wear crazy costumes. This year there was Donkey Kong, Princess Peach, some grannies with walkers, some skeletons (mom and daughter) and some unicorns to name just a few. In total, we had 32 people form CFE participate.
Fight Gone Bad is designed to be a workout simulating an MMA fight. The clock runs for five minutes each round, with no stopping during those five minutes. At the top of every minute, you immediately move to a new exercise: wall-ball shots followed by sumo-deadlift high pulls, box jumps, push presses and rowing. Athletes only have one minute of rest between rounds.
For the past two years, I have participated in ‘Fight Gone Bad’ in honour of Plugged In Community Centre. The crew of us at Plugged In have a dream of one day having a community facility in St. Albert that is inclusive for all. A centre with programming for seniors, special needs families, and people struggling with mental health issues.
