We are excited to announce our 6th Annual Invictus Athlete Online Competition brought to you by Assault Fitness and Normatec!

Mark your calendars: December 18 – 20th.

Each year, we do a FREE 3-day online competition, where competitors can get a gauge on where they stand going into the start of the 2018 season.

Divisions include:
Elite Male & Female
Intermediate Male & Female
Masters 40-44 Male & Female
Masters 45-49 Male & Female
Masters 50-54 Male & Female
Masters 55+ Male & Female

Monday, December 18 – 20, the daily training on the Invictus Athlete Program, Masters Program and Competition blog will be competitive events. Each of the events should be easily performed within the typical training time; 60-90 minutes at most. The events are designed to be challenging, but fun, and provide all of the athletes in our online community with a decent assessment of where they stack up compared to some of the other community members going into the 2018 CrossFit Open season.

Last year, more than 1,500 athletes participated, making for a really fun competition. This is a free, informal and friendly competition. You will be required to do nothing more than post your name and results for the three days of competition. We fully expect that all will be honorable in their movement quality. Since our sponsors have decided to kick in some huge prizes this year, we may be asking the individuals placing in the top 5 and earning prizes to verify results with video.

Please encourage your training partners to participate as well. The more athletes involved in this competition, the more fun it will be! This year’s test is going to be the best one yet, topped with some prizes from our awesome sponsors.

To keep track of what I’ve done so far on the events I for which I was unable to meet the requirements: Event Four. I did it but had to substitute singles for dubs and knee ups for T2Bs. My time was 0:18:16. Event Five: I did not attempt. Event Six, Event Seven and Event Eight, I completed but substituted jumping pull ups for Chest to Bars so did not score these events.. Running times were: Event Six 0:04:26, Event Seven at 0:11:35, Event Eight at 0:22:04

Question about the online competition – lacking in the handstand walking department wonder if this is a big enough hurdle to not participate? Thoughts?


You can absolutely participate! There will be 11 scored events, so even if one event doesn’t go well, you’ll still have lots of good tests to see where you are at.
