The Christmas season is upon us which means carolers, food and more time spent with family. For many Boxes, family is built from the community within your gym.
A great way to bring the Box family together this holiday season is by hosting an event. Here are several fun ideas from what Boxes across the nation are doing to bring their Affiliate family together:
CrossFit ReVamped in Columbia, Maryland, hosts an annual party in December with catered food, holiday music, Elf on repeat, spiced lattes, crafts and community.
On top of that, they add some Christmas cheer by giving to another family. This year the Box has adopted a family of seven for the holidays. At the Christmas party, they will be collecting gifts for the family members to help bring some unexpected joy this holiday season. A week before Christmas, Revamped will deliver all the gifts to the family on behalf of the Box.
CrossFit Strode Station in Winchester, Kentucky, is hosting a Christmas Giving this holiday season. Christmas Giving is a workout for a cause, costing participants $10 to join.
One hundred percent of the proceeds are being donated to Clark County Community Services. The Box is partnering with GoodGiving.net, an organization that will match the money raised by Strode Station.
In the spirit of Christmas, CrossFit 441 in Clayton, Georgia, will host a potluck dinner and ugly sweater party to bring their gym community together. The food served will be in potluck style, which encourages everyone to get involved and bring a dish.
The Box is providing games such as Spike Ball, corn hole, Cards Against Humanity, good music and a prize for the ugliest sweater. They will also be hosting a gift exchange and encourage members to bring their family and friends.
It wouldn’t be a CrossFit Christmas without a workout. At CrossFit Rampage in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, they are hosting their annual Christmas Throwdown event.
Christmas Throwdown is a one-day, Rx-only competition for athletes across the state. The event is the longest running competition in the middle Tennessee area. The Box encourages members to come out in their best Christmas attire to cheer on the competitors.
