For the next 5 weeks we will be competing in the Crossfit Open. The Open WODs will be every Friday as the class workout. To give the Open a competition feel we will be hosting “Friday Night Lights”, where people sign-up for heats and their friends can come and cheer them on.
“Friday Night Lights” will begin at 5:30pm (All other classes will run as normal)
During FNL you must sign-up for a heat and find someone to judge you. There will be a warm-up on the whiteboard. Since this is a competition scenario, you will be expected to warm-up on your own and be ready to workout before your heat.


I can’t imagine stopping this lifestyle now and am excited to see where my journey at RNCF will take me next.*

You can scale everything based on your ability, and it's the initial challenge that makes it fun. More importantly, I wouldn't join RNCF just for the workouts. I'd join to try something new, meet a good group of people, and obviously to look better naked.*

I have yet to experience boredom that came with other exercise programs, and to be honest, I don’t think I ever will. The people and coaches also make coming in every morning that much better.*
