Sand & Steel Fitness' Pride PairUp Throwdown Competition is an annual team-based Pride Celebration & Competition. You and two other teammates will work together to finish a challenging 35 minute synchronized CrossFit WOD. Then the Top 4 teams will face off in a single-elimination Olympic lifting showdown until one team remains. Trophies go to the top three finishing teams and MVP, a full brunch, beers on Paul (owner), and bragging rights for the whole year.
Supporting the LGBT community is an essential part of what makes Sand & Steel special. The Pride PairUp Throwdown is their official event to celebrate and thank all of their LBGT members.
Pride PairUp Throwdown is open to all Sand & Steel members that support equal rights for members and social acceptance for members of the LBTQ community. Spouses and New Members Welcome

About Sand & Steel Fitness
Sand & Steel is an all-inclusive gym that supports athletes of ALL FITNESS LEVELS. Beginner-level athletes will have a significantly easier scaling than our more advanced athletes. So if you are a beginner your exercises will have lower weights and be less technical than an advanced athlete. On the other hand, if you are a more advanced athlete, they will be putting you through your paces with some heavier deadlifts and thrusters.
Bottom-line, everyone can participate in this event. If you have endured an injury, they'll scale it down for you. And of course, the Sand & Steel staff will carefully balance the teams so everyone has an equal chance to win.
