Denver Indoor Rowing Championships – Maddie Berky
The Denver Indoor Rowing Championships are almost upon us. This is an indoor rowing competition taking place in our very own land-locked city February 2nd and we at CrossFit Verve are looking to kick some serious erging butt at the team event this year. The team race is a cumulative 4k, with 2 men and 2 women per team (each person will row about 1000m.) The price is $50 per team.
In good old crew fashion, we are going to race for seats this coming Sunday, January 26th during rowing class. Everyone will row a 1000m piece, and I will then boat everyone according to their times into a First Varsity, Second Varity, etc in order to create some teams for the event. (Of course, if you have a group of people you want to row with for the event, you can make your own boat.)
All are welcome to come out and throw down on the ergs whether or not you have been coming to rowing class or want to compete in the Denver Indoor Rowing Championships. Both this inter-box scrimmage as well as the Championships will be a great opportunity to show us (or rather, yourself) what you’ve got on that machine in a supportive environment with lots of yelling by yours truly. Who know, I might even break out my college uni…
If you would like to compete in the Denver Indoor Rowing Championships you need to do a 1000m piece either in open gym and send me your average split & time prior to Jan 26th or you need to come to class on the 26th.
What have you got to lose?

*Verve will pay to register AT LEAST 2 TEAMS ($50/each) and will happily consider more if there are enough people interested.


  1. Luke Pennington :

    I don’t mean to jack this thread, but I am relatively new to Verve and am looking for a teammate for the in-house comp on Feb. 8th. Guy or girl partner and can go pro or open. Just looking to have fun (why do I feel like I’m posting to an online dating site?)…I like doing burpees on the beach and drinking coconut water. Let me know if you’re interested, thanks!

  2. Mike C :

    Is it a bad idea for VBBC to do this wod Rx?

  3. Cherie :

    Luke – get in touch with he’s helping partner people up!
    Mike C – yes! Deload!!!!

    Cheers great to see so many come out to the food chat. You all inspired Matt to create a new lecture more focused on the “How” !

  4. Abbey :

    The nutrition lecture was great! I have the paleo part down, now I need to zone! I might need some help from Robyn K.B 😉

  5. Madeline :

    Hey all, I got the dates mixed up – we’ll be competing on Sat, Feb 1st!
