Batteraof Athlete of 2016

The end of 2016 is near and what a great year it was for CrossFit Batteraof!
Here is a short recap of what all happened in 2016:

  • 3 coaches went to 2 coaches with an intern.
  • 3 Buddy teams participated in the Beach Throwdown, and had the competition eat sand!
  • We rebuild the pull up rig to an amazing wall mounted 20m BEAST.
  • In all 3 TIGLON competitions the Batteraof girls participated in the final
  • South Side Throwdown, the one and only competition in the South was a big success.
  • The monthly challenges got introduced and work like a charm
  • Many many visits to Carnal and many visits to Dadawan will follow
  • Pr's got crushed
  • Lots of GAINZ, some of you are unrecognizable compared to last year

To celebrate the progress we made in 2016 and to look forward into 2017 we would like to invite you to the NEW YEAR BORREL Saturday the 14th of January 2017 starting at 9:30 in the morning!
We will start with a special 2017 BUDDY WOD from 9:30 to 11:30, sign up via MindBody (make sure you have a buddy!) No open gym or other WOD's that day.
After we will be serving food and drinks until it's time to go home.

See you Saturday January the 14th!!!


Let's not waist any time on the DECEMBER 2015 CHALLENGE, we all know we failed miserably...and let's go straight to the January 2016 Challenge!

Have you seen the NEW ASSAULT BIKE? It's a machine made in HELL!
We would like to challenge you to get the highest RPM (rounds per minute) possible.
I know some of you have been practicing and can acknowledge this challenge is harder than the 500m row challenge!

To win the famous Batteraof T-shirt here are some rules:
• Men and Women have their own category
• You can try as many times as you like within a month's time
• Clean your sweat, blood and puke from the bike
• Don't bike outside!




“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” - Muhammad Ali -

Friday the 18th of December 2015 we are organizing a night of goal setting for 2016 in our CrossFit Batteraof box.

Starting at 6pm you are welcome to drop in and talk to us about your personal goals for 2016. There will also be a form/questionnaire send around before the 18th so you can come prepared.

• Our new fysio team will present themselves and give a small demo of how they will be able to help with and prevent injuries.

• Ramon our new nutritionist will give a short presentation about his services and how to improve your food and drinking habits to support your health and sports. He will also be showing how a body composition measurement is done.

• The athlete of 2015 will be announced chosen by members of the box.

• There will be a picture presentation of 2015.

• Time for some action after all that talking! From 8 to 9 pm you can participate in the BARBELLS & BEER WOD for the men and the WHISKEY & WORST WOD for the women. We will be starting of with CrossFit Baseline and complete the WOD with CrossFit Total.
