Hurricane Harvey FGB Benefit

In the wake of the wrath left behind in Texas by Hurricane Harvey, our community of CrossFit athletes feel it’s our duty to raise funds and awareness to help the survivors of this natural disaster get back on their feet.
On SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, we, Aquila Fitness will host a THROWDOWN of one of CrossFit’s most famous WOD’s … FIGHT GONE BAD (FGB)!
3 Rounds for Total Reps
1 Minute at Each Station
• Wallball Shots (20#M/14#W)
• Sumo Deadlift High Pull (75#M/55#W)
• Box Jumps (20″M/W)
• Push Press (75#M/55#W)
• Calorie Row
• Rest
There will be a (minimum) $20 per person “buy-in” to participate in FGB, with ALL PROCEEDS earned via registration going DIRECTLY into the hands of the survivors via the Global Giving Foundation. Medical supplies, food, water and help in rebuilding shelter is what your $20 (or more, if you wish!) will go towards…with you getting in an awesome, albeit, brutal workout to go with it!
Your “sign-up” and/or donation can be made on our event Go-Fund-Me page at:
While we will also happily accept cash on the day of the event, we would like to encourage you to donate via the link above by way of credit, debit or PayPal, to make things as seamless as possible on the 16th.
There will be a food truck on site and workout wear for purchase, along with a few other goodies. Bring plenty of water and a lawn chair to watch your fellow athletes compete for a PR in this notorious CrossFit WOD.
ANYONE who is interested in participating physically and/or just by donating are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to do so!!!
{{This is NOT a CrossFit exclusive event!! }}
If you’ve ever had an ounce of athletic ability in you…COME JOIN US!! We will not only explain the movements to you, but we will have scaled stations setup for any novice individuals who attend!
