2023: a Year of Fun and Fitness at SCFIT

What a year it has been at SCFIT! With 2023 drawing to a close, it’s time to look back on the last 12 months and celebrate all that we’ve achieved!

The 2023 CrossFit Open

The first big event of 2023 was of course the CrossFit Open! For three consecutive weeks, we hosted Friday Night Lights, where dozens and dozens of members booked on to heats, turned up and took part in the Open workouts! The Open was a roaring success, with many members achieving things the didn’t think were possible, and some taking part for the very first time. 2024 promises to be another exciting Open – and you can find out more about the CrossFit Games season and the 2024 Open here

Strength in Depth: Origins

SCFIT returned to Bath for their fifth year to take part in SiD Origins: a huge international competition where mixed teams of 12 come together for a series of workouts across one action-packed weekend! The team climbed a huge number of places on the leaderboard from their qualifying position (earning themselves ‘highest climbers!) and ended the weekend on a huge high having pulled together and supported one another through a 9 tough team workouts! In 2024 the squad will return once again – check out the SiD website here for information such as volunteering opportunities and spectator tickets in the New Year!

Spring Throwdown

Before we knew it, Easter was upon us, which meant time for the first Throwdown of the year! Open to all, it was a brilliant day packed with team workouts and fitness fun! SCFIT is famous for its inclusive Throwdowns, and the 2023 events were no exception: with workouts everyone could get involved in, members making new friends and trying new things, the day was a huge success!

Fitness Fun

Strength in Depth: UK Championships

The SCFIT crew returned to the competition floor for another incredible SiD event in July, with various teams and individuals taking part in a range of categories! 12 SCFIT athletes took part across the three-day event, and two additional members volunteered as judges. As always, we were blown away by the incredible support of the SCFIT community, with a full crowd of SCFITters at the barrier screaming and cheering for the athletes – it’s no surprise our crew had a few shout outs from the MC for the biggest support crew!

Part of the Solution 21-15-09 Row

At the beginning of August, in conjunction with Part Of The Solution, we hosted the world’s longest 21-15-09… an ENORMOUS team row challenge to help raise funds for a defibrillator for our friends at RH10 Fitness! Members turned up throughout the day (starting in the very early hours!) to each take a stint on the rower and contribute to the mammoth total distance of 211,509 metres. Into the early evening the crew did it – they completed the distance! And, crucially, raised enough funds for RH10 to purchase their own life-saving defibrillator.

Halloween Throwdown

Before we knew it, Autumn was upon us, which could only mean one thing… the return of the Halloween Throwdown! Much like its Easter counterpart, the October Throwdown was a fantastic, inclusive team competition open to all members, and of course… fancy dress was a must! We loved seeing members turn up in their costumes for a day of fitness with their friends, many managing to keep their masks, capes and outfits on all day!

CrossFit Fitness Workout

It’s coming… the 12 Days of Christmas!

Now just days away, we wrap up the 2023 festive season with SCFIT’s big bonanza class on Christmas Eve: The 12 Days of Christmas! Just like the famous song, members will join us for a huge team class and work their way through 12 rounds (or shall we call them verses…?!) of movements, always counting back down to that 1 run! Be sure to reserve your space on the 24th December! And if you can’t make it? We’ll be back with another holiday-special workout on New Year’s Eve – so don’t miss out!

An Incredible Year of Fitness

And just like that, 2023 is a wrap! We’re already excited for next year – stay tuned for a sneak peak at what is in store for 2024 at SCFIT!
