A huge week from team 7 bumping them 2 places up the leader board by picking up big position points in both RX and scaled divisions this week! 

But can anyone pull it out of the bag this week and jump ahead of pace setters team 4!!?? 

Participation points are going to be vital this week for final placings!! 
Our Spirit points for last week were awarded to… 
Abi for taking the lead and organising an amazing buffet!! Louise batty for completing the workout in another affiliate while away with work.. Using road signs and sand filled wall balls to get it done! 

Anna McNally for overcoming fears and going RX last min and getting a fab score finishing 5th in the WOD! Finally Tracy Davies for smashing an awesome score topping the women’s leaderboard! despite not long having shoulder surgery and more importantly only just mastering efficient RX HSPU last week!

A change to Warrior Wednesday

In preparation for the 2015 Open and Affiliate Cup we are changing Warrior Wednesdays to …….
“Open WOD Wednesdays” for the next few weeks. In these sessions we will be re visiting some of the most gruelling Open qualifying Workouts from the last few years, looking at tactics and how best to approach them if something similar presents itself this coming February!
As always there will be varying levels of the workout, scaled to suit every individual athlete!
The first one starts tomorrow….
Look forward to seeing you all there!!


The Countdown is on…
In just a few hours the first workout will be released for the 2014 Crossfit Open! But more importantly for our Celtic Warriors, it also means the announcement of the first workout of our Celtic Affiliate Cup Competition!
Computerised scoring and league tables have been created and the weekly athlete score board has been added to the white board!


All the remains now is to sit back, enjoy and embrace whatever is thrown at us!
