We are excited to announce our 6th Annual Invictus Athlete Online Competition brought to you by Assault Fitness and Normatec!

Mark your calendars: December 18 – 20th.

Each year, we do a FREE 3-day online competition, where competitors can get a gauge on where they stand going into the start of the 2018 season.

Divisions include: 
Elite Male & Female
Intermediate Male & Female
Masters 40-44 Male & Female
Masters 45-49 Male & Female
Masters 50-54 Male & Female
Masters 55+ Male & Female

Monday, December 18 – 20, the daily training on the Invictus Athlete ProgramMasters Programand Competition blog will be competitive events. Each of the events should be easily performed within the typical training time; 60-90 minutes at most. The events are designed to be challenging, but fun, and provide all of the athletes in our online community with a decent assessment of where they stack up compared to some of the other community members going into the 2018 CrossFit Open season.

Last year, more than 1,500 athletes participated, making for a really fun competition. This is a free, informal and friendly competition. You will be required to do nothing more than post your name and results for the three days of competition. We fully expect that all will be honorable in their movement quality. Since our sponsors have decided to kick in some huge prizes this year, we may be asking the individuals placing in the top 5 and earning prizes to verify results with video.

Please encourage your training partners to participate as well. The more athletes involved in this competition, the more fun it will be! This year’s test is going to be the best one yet, topped with some prizes from our awesome sponsors.
