If you’ve been a CrossFitter in Central Indiana for more than a year, you’ve definitely heard of Strength in Our Streets (SIOS). Its the Mother-ship of all local CrossFit competitions. It’s 30+ CrossFit gyms from all over Indiana competing in a CrossFit-meets-Field Day type fundraiser. The top 10, and certainly the winner, get some legit bragging rights.
More than that, SIOS is a fundraiser. I can’t emphasize that enough. SIOS raises money for Wheeler Mission & Outreach, Inc., an organization that is near and dear to current and past CFI members. The competition part is fun, but the fundraising is the heart.
Who: We need 5 men and 5 women to COMPETE. In addition, we need 1 man and 1 woman to JUDGE (they do not sub each other, if you judge, you judge all day).
When: Saturday, June 23rd, this is an ALL DAY event (starts roughly 7:45am and lasts until 4pm)
Where: Park Tudor High School (football/track field)
Sign Up in the North Gym if Interested. Once everyone has signed up, the actual participants will then be selected at random.
Scaling/Rx Concerns? Nah. SIOS often includes a variety of weights and movements, that not every single member has to be able to perform. Some example workouts from past years that everyone had to perform included: thrusters 95/65#, burpees, field sprints, rowing, sit ups, lunges with weight (approx 30/50#).
More questions? Ask a coach. Also, check out the SIOS Facebook page for updates and to see previous years’ workouts, leaderboard, etc.
Hope to see your name on the board!
