The event that started it all is BACK for a 11th consecutive year! Well, sort of consecutive…it was combined with Capital City Throwdown in 2020 due to this global pandemic thing. 😉 What do we have up our sleeve for 2023? Register to find out!!! 🙂

The SLAUGHTERFEST™ is now open to all level of athletes from ages 10 and up. 16 and 17 year olds may participate in the scaled division. The RX division is open to all athletes 18 and up. 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. The Scaled division will include lighter weight and less advanced movements than Rx. All athletes will be required to sign a waiver.

Rx: This division includes all powerlifting, bodyweight, and gymnastic movements. You do not have to be amazing at these movements, if you can do them then you are an RX athlete and should register for this division. For example, Rx teams should have at least one person that can do muscle ups, handstand push ups, and all the other standard CrossFit movements.

Scaled: If you have stood on a podium as a scaled athlete in another NWFG competition then you should probably register for Rx now, that is a clear sign. This division is for athletes that frequently scale work outs. Do not choose scaled for the following reasons, we will call you out for this:

Its your first competition. If you go Rx in the box… do it for us also.
A couple other scaled athletes need a teammate. Don’t do it, help them find a real scaled person.
You want to be on a podium. This is a huge disservice to the real scaled athletes and makes them think they are not good enough for this division.
You can’t do a strict L-sit muscle up yet. You will see the WODs ahead of time and KNOW if you can do the movements in the competition.
Its super important to protect the integrity of the scaled division, please help us do that. You will need someone on the team that can do pull ups… they are in scaled.

Novice: This division is for athletes new to functional fitness and athletes with a long way to go in their fitness journey. You will be able to modify any movement to find something that will work. There is no finals for Novice, this is for people that want to experience the “fun” of competition but are not even at the scaled level yet. Adaptive athlete should register for this division, please contact us if you have questions.

Masters: This division is a hybrid of Rx and scaled weights and movements. You may have the choice between Rx movements or less technical movements at higher volume (For example: 3 muscle ups OR 9 CTB Pull Ups)

All athletes will be required to sign a waiver. There will be no refunds for enforcing the current covid mandates whatever they may be at the time of the event. If we have to cancel the event you will have the option to get a full refund or credit to a future event.
