  • CFJ SPRING THROWDOWN & 7th BIRTHDAY BASH

    - by Imtiaz

    The CFJ Spring Throwdown is an annual in-house competition open to athletes of all fitness levels from both CrossFit Jozi facilities. It’s an opportunity to express your fitness, experience a different side of CrossFit, and to get to know more of your fellow members.

    It will be a same-gender team event again. Teams are to be made up of two athletes of the same gender. Teams will have the option of entering a Scaled or RXd division, so regardless of experience and level of fitness, all athletes will be able to participate. You may pair up with, and are actually encouraged to pair up with a partner from the other facility.

    This year, the Throwdown will be part of our 7th birthday celebrations. Yes, CFJ HQ and the CFJ brand turn 7 years young this October! So it’s going to be a festive throwdown like nothing we’ve ever hosted before. Save the date!

    Registrations for the Throwdown will open soon.
