Resolution Games

Resolution Games was the brainchild of our success with the MAAC. We started to get the hang of the competition world, and wanted to offer something exclusively to our 12 Labours members. The Resolution Games started 4 years ago as a place for athletes of the 12 Labours community to compete against one another. Athletes from each location, get to test out their fitness against athletes that sometimes they only see on the Wodify Whiteboard. 

We have multiple divisions and make sure that all athletes have the ability to compete, that means whether you have been to the CrossFit Games, or have never competed before. 

We have an absolute blast with this day, so keep an eye out every year around February for the next Resolution Games.


Nutrition Challenges

We offer Nutrition Challenges and Goal Setting Seminars to our members once or twice a year depending on the rest of the social schedule. 

These change with time but always have a Kick-Off meeting to discuss Nutrition Principles and Goal-Setting, followed up with a workout to test. Depending on the length of the challenge, we have a few metrics we take at the start, log daily and weekend tasks for scoring. 

At the end we tally up the scores, retest the workout and whatever metrics were being measured and announce a winner.

Social Get Togethers

Plenty of events throughout the year to get together and be social. Whether that is a charity workout for a local cause, a BBQ, or a Holiday Bar Crawl we like to unwind a bit. 

Most of these smaller events are managed through our social media, so check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for more details on these!

Memorial Day Murph

Held every Memorial Day, we open up our doors to all local CrossFitters who want to honor those Fallen Heroes. Traditionally we always do "Murph" as the workout, and make sure to provide scaling options for all fitness levels. We start with the National Anthem, then get our sweat on, followed up with a potluck. 

Mark your calendars every Memorial Day cause this is a big event for us!

Syndicate Battlegrounds

August

location: columbia district

We are paying homage to our roots and starting a new type of competition format. The Syndicate Battlegrounds will be a partner competition and offer 3 divisions. It will be a premier fitness competition that will occur for the CrossFit community for Male/Male - Female/Female - Male/Female teams. Athletes from CrossFit affiliates in the greater Baltimore/Columbia area will have a chance to compete within indoor and outdoor workouts. This competition allows every type of athlete to compete, including teenagers since there are no high skill gymnastics or olympic weightlifting movements.

Syndicate Vault

december

location: columbia district

The Syndicate Vault will be slightly different than your local fitness competition because it will be a bracket style elimination format. The partner competition will be Male/Female only and the number of accepted teams will be capped at 64. First, there will be no distinction between fitness levels during registration. All teams will be placed in one division. After completion of one preliminary seeded workout, the top 32 ranked Male/Female teams will be placed in the Gold bracket, while the remaining 32 Make/Female teams will be placed in Silver bracket. This means that each team will be guaranteed a minimum of two workouts. After the the first seeded workout, the single elimination process begins. The bracket rounds have teams compete head-to-head against one opposing team. The winning team advances to the next round. The final teams will each complete 5 workouts in one day to win their respective brackets.

The Slapshot Regatta

FEBRUARY

location: annapolis district

The Slapshot Regatta is a unique community event that brings both 12 Labours districts together. There are 8 rowers lined up per district to accumulate max meters and there are continuous hockey puck shootouts. In our inaugural event in 2018, the Annapolis District came away with the win and the right to house the Golden Lion statue for the remainder of the year. Every 5 minutes, 5 members from each gym shoots a hockey puck at the opposing district's coach. The winning team gets to row on an extra rower in the remaining 5 minute period to add additional meters to overall total.

2019 Total Meters Rowed Between Both Districts: 264,420

Annapolis: 133,661 meters (Winner) vs. Columbia District: 129, 759
