12 Days of CrossFit – The Workouts & Schedule

Wait, you didn’t think we were about to reveal the workouts to you, did you?

Each year we try and bring some variation to the 12 Days of CrossFit workouts, some years have been all “The Girls” while some years have included CrossFit Open workouts, and last year had 6 days of “The Girls”, followed by 6 days of ‘The Hero’s”.

This year, our 12 Days of CrossFit takes on another twist!

Our selected workouts this year are ones that have appeared throughout the year on CrossFit mainsite, CrossFit.com!

So day 1 will be a benchmark workout that appeared in January, day 2 will be a benchmark workout that appeared in February, day 3 is a workout from March..and so on. In previous years we have let you cast votes on workouts and that was the plan this year, until we had this brainwave!

Sure, go ahead and scroll back through the archives, CF-HQ post several benchmarks each month, so we had a whole bunch to choose from.

So get ready for what could be the most varied, most fun, and most challenging 12 Days of CrossFit to date!


During the 12 days of CrossFit there are some minor schedule changes. These changes are to encourage EVERYONE to join in the Christmas festivities, and also ensure we have enough space and equipment for classes.

From the 5th to 16th December there will be no MetCon classes, Weightlifting Club or Competition Classes:

As such the evening classes Monday to Friday will be the standard 17:30, 18:30 and 19:30 (yes 19:30 on Friday!).

Saturday 10th will have classes at 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00, and Sunday 11th will have classes at 10:00 and 11:00
