Join us for the original and premier three-person team event back at the Pavilion, Oregon State Fairgrounds for the first time since 2019! We will once again have a blast, crush some WODs, and find out once again which team is the Gobbler Gauntlet champion!

The GOBBLER GAUNTLETtm is open to all level of athletes over the age of 18. All athletes are encouraged to familiarize themselves with different fitness domains; more specifically to have some exposure to CrossFit-style workouts and powerlifting.  The Rx division includes all powerlifting, bodyweight, and gymnastic movements.  NW Fit Games does not program ring muscle ups in regular competition, however they have shown up in finals. The Scaled division will include lighter weight and less advanced movements than Rx.  All athletes will be required to sign a waiver.
