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!

The August Challenge ended in an epic battle between Danielle and Juan fighting for the best FRAN time. Juan won with 2 min and 58sec beating Danielle with just 41 seconds.
Jeroen caused some confusion during the challenge with his INVISIBLE FRAN time of 1min and 57 sec. but he unfortunately could not get the same FRAN time with 43kg on his bar...

The SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE is a completely different Powerlifting beast. No high intensity workout but pure raw power! 1 rep max BENCH PRESS minus your bodyweight.
Some rules:
• Stand on the scale just before or just after you do the challenge and take your shoes off but keep your clothes on!
• Keep your butt and head on the bench
• Touch your chest with the bar
• Full extension at the top in the beginning and end of the press
• No help. When you cannot lift the bar make sure you have a spotting buddy
• Yes your score can be in the minus, just lift more weight!
We got 2 categories this month, male and female.



Maybe you have noticed some WOD's are a bit more quiet than regular because of summer holidays.
Therefore we are introducing an August Summer Holiday Schedule. From the 1st until the 31st of August the following WOD's will be cancelled:
• Monday 11am cancelled
• Monday 8:30pm cancelled
• Tuesday 8:30pm cancelled, the 7:30pm WOD will be replaced by Weightlifting
• Wednesday 11am cancelled
• Wednesday 6:30pm cancelled
• Thursday 8:30pm cancelled, the 7:30pm WOD will be replaced by Powerlifting

If you already signed up you will get an email of the cancellation. And don't worry about signing up for the specialty classes, it's for all fitness levels. The cancelled WOD's will be replaced by OPEN GYM as much as possible.



The July Challenge was a battle of unprecedented scale! The female athletes got a clear winner with 3 min and 21 sec. Congratulations Karin, come and get your Batteraof t-shirt!!

On the male athletes side there isn't one clear winner but 3! Karsten, Remco F. and Stef have the same score of 2 min and 58 sec.
Therefore we are organizing a SHOWDOWN, FINAL BATTLE!! There can be but one victor ;)
Please organize yourselfs and get ready to "go to war"!



The August Challenge is a completely different beast. You will be challenged to set your BEST "FRAN" TIME. Fran is a girls benchmark workout consisting out of: 21-15-9 reps of Thrusters (43/30) and Pullups. No timecap, just get it done as fast as possible. If you need to scale do so and make a note on the board. The box WOD's will also be "Fran-biased" this month, so no excuses!!!
