Winnipeg-CrossFit 204 is proud to be one of the satellite hosts for CrossFit Subzero’s Intergalactic Throwdown, which goes down on Sat., Feb. 5.
If you watched the FrostFit Games and want to get into CrossFit competition, or if you just want to do a few workouts and support a great cause, this is the event for you. CrossFit 204 will judge and/or film your workouts, and we’ll submit the results to CrossFit Subzero so you can see where you compare with athletes taking part in the competition all over Canada, from Vancouver to Halifax.
In the Intergalactic division, you’ll be competing against some of the top CrossFit athletes in Canada, including D.J. Wickham (see photo), Dan Rogers, Lauren Pryor and many more. You’ll be doing serious CrossFit workouts, and they’ll be a true test of your all-around fitness. If you’re working toward the CrossFit Games Sectionals or Regionals, this is the division for you, and it will be a top-level CrossFit extravaganza. There will be no snatches or muscle-ups, but every other CrossFit movement is on the table. Brace yourselves!
Because CrossFit is about fitness for everyone, we’ll also be offering scaled versions of these workouts for anyone who wants to take part but isn’t quite ready for the CrossFit Games. We will scale for athletes of any ability, and you can inform us of any needs once the events are announced.
The workouts will be released Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. by CrossFit Subzero, and we’ll re-post them here. The exact schedule of events will be released at that time as well, but please plan to be available from about 7:30 a.m. to about 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5.
Registration is $10 to Focus Fitness for letting us use their space, and any donation you wish to make will be forwarded to Local Dog Rescue and New Hope Dog Rescue in Thunder Bay, Ont. Receipts will be issued on site, and tax receipts are available from the charities on request. Please advise us during your on-site check-in. Cash only, please.
We will accommodate as many athletes as we can, but space will be limited, and spots will go on a first-come, first-served basis. Please e-mail [email protected] to register. If you have already pre-registered through your affiliate, there is no need to resend your e-mail.
In your e-mail, please include the following:

Competitive preference: “Intergalactic” means you are an experienced CrossFitter who can perform most workouts as prescribed. If you register for Intergalactic and need scaling once the workouts are announced, we will accommodate you. There will be no muscle-ups or snatches. “Junior” means you are under 20. “Intermediate” means you are a novice or intermediate CrossFitter and will most likely require some modifications to the workouts. If you register for Intermediate and can RX the workouts once they are announced, we will do our best to accommodate you based on the number of participants in the Intergalactic division.
You will check in on the morning of Feb. 5 at Focus Fitness, upstairs in the MTS Iceplex, 3969 Portage Ave., where you will sign a waiver, pay $10 to the facility and make a donation to the event’s charities if you wish.
More info will be posted as it’s available.
If you would like to volunteer at the event, please e-mail e-mail [email protected].
