Every year we have a 100,000 meter rowing challenge that runs from the day after Thanksgiving to News Years Eve!
This year we are making it a 100,000 (or more!) meter challenge but you will account for running, rowing, biking, AND ski erg meters.
Simply add your name to the boards hanging on the walls under the Crossfit Federal Hill logo!
There is a column to keep a running total of running meters, rowing meters, and combined bike and ski erg meters. In the last square of your row on the board, you’ll put your grand total (all the way to the right)!
When is this Challenge:
This challenge starts November 27th and the last day to accumulate meters is December 31st.
When can I get my meters in?
There are squares in the gym marked by green tape that can be used to accumulate meters on any machine. During morning classes (5:30am, 6:30am, 8:30am, 11:00am, and 12:00pm) you can simply sign up for open gym and utilize the green squares if you are planning to just hit some meters. Weekdays at 3:00pm, 4:00pm, and 6:30pm(M/W/F ONLY), and Sundays after Capacity there are specific Meter Challenge Spots you can reserve in Zen Planner.
Please avoid coming in to accumulate meters on weekdays between 4:45-6:30pm and on Saturdays as that puts us closer than we would like to our capacity limit of 25%.
Why Would I Do This?
We do the 100,000m challenge every year at this time to help keep you consistent through the cold months and through the holidays! Its a fun and very approachable challenge for all fitness levels. Some days the cold and the dark may have you down and a crossfit workout seems like too much. You know what isn’t too much? A quick 20 min on the bike to warm you up! So lets encourage each other and see how many meters we can rack up!
Can I Use a Green Spot for Regular Open Gym?
No silly billy, that’s what the regular open gym spots are for! We purposely made these spots small as they are just for biking, rowing, or skiing.
Can’t I Just Hop on a Machine for Meters Whenever I Want?
Please respect the times we have allotted in Zen Planner for this so that we can keep our capacity at a safe level. This is especially important for the evenings and Saturdays. There are not allotted times in Zen Planner during the 5:30am, 6:30am, 8:30am, 11:00am, and 12:00pm because open gym is typically empty during those classes. Because of that you can reserve an open gym spot for your meters during those times. Thank you in advance!

If you travel (car, train, plane, bicycle, any mode of transportation), or socialize outside your usual “bubble” please keep our community safe and take THREE days away from the gym to monitor your symptoms. The cases we have had in the gym from travel could have been avoided with just a three day grace period.
We wear masks at ALL TIMES.
Athletes enter the gym through the side door to have their temperature taken. If the coach is wrapping up class when you get to the gym, just wait on one of the colored dots inside the door until they can get to you.
Not a COVID procedure, but there is NO MEMBER PARKING in front of the gym. Please find street parking.
