Workout buffs to get philanthropic, fit with annual Crossfit fundraiser

Last year, CrossFit affiliates around the nation raised $550,000 for Athletes For a Cure, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for prostate cancer. This year, not only will CrossFit and its affiliates donate to an additional organization– the Wounded Warrior Project, which benefits returning war veterans- but the 360 Combat Club and its newly opened CrossFit gym, CrossFit360 in Signal Hill, will also join the cause.
“Crossfit is an excellent complement to our self-defense program. It’s a functional workout that focuses on all aspects of fitness- from cardiovascular to weightlifting to agility to speed to…you name it,” said Crossfit360 Head Coach Jennifer Predolin.
September 27 marks the third annual “Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser,” in which CrossFitters raise money and awareness and do an honorary workout to support a cause. Members of CrossFit360, an affiliate located in Signal Hill and Tustin, will be participating in force. The workout is also open to members of the public who are curious about the facility and would like to donate an hour (and some sweat) to a worthy cause.
By 5 p.m. on September 27, any individual desiring to participate will have raised $150 or more in pledges. On that day, participants will also hit the gym for what is touted as one of the most grueling CrossFit workouts: Fight Gone Bad.
Fight Gone Bad is a circuit workout where stations are performed back to back for one minute each; repetitions are counted at each station, including wall balls, sumo dead lift high-pulls, push presses, box jumps and dynabike (calories burned are counted at the bike station).
