FrostFit 2012 CrossFit WinnipegJust over a week until the Third Annual FrostFit Games, January 19th, 2013.  Here is some information to help the competitors plan their day.

Parking: We should have plenty of parking however, there will be one area that will be off limits as it is for the Arnold Bros Trucks.  We will post a diagram and signs.

Entrance, Coats & Shoes: There will be two separate entrances, one for athletes and one for spectators.  Athletes will have access to the entire back area, including the yoga room and seminar rooms, hallways, offices, as well as the smaller gym in the back for warming up.  There are 4 private showers and change rooms available in the back area for the athletes, so bring your towel.  Our athlete warm-up area and resting area is quite small for the number of athletes competing so we would like to keep the back for athletes and volunteers only.  We ask that spectators respect the competitors’ space so that they can rest and recover between events.

Therapists & other recovery stuff:  There will be massage therapists and chiropractors/athletic therapists/ART practitioners on site for the entire day.  These will be set up in the offices in the athlete’s area. We will also have some stretch bands, foam rollers, lacrosse balls and theracanes available for athletes to use.  Unfortunately we were not able to secure a tub for ice baths, but feel free to use the snowbanks.

Lunch & Snacks: Athletes are expected to bring their coolers for whatever they need, however we will have snacks on hand, as well as protein powders and protein shakes.  We will also have a DeLuca’s espresso station in the morning.  We are also looking into the possibility of having a food truck on hand.  Pimp My Rice has great quasi-paleo Philipino food and if it’s not too cold on the day of the competition they might be able to come out.  We can’t make any guarantees but we’re working on it.  Let’s hope Mother Nature cooperates.

Dinner: Dinner is included for all the athletes and volunteers, and spectators can buy ticker for dinner and the part for $20.  Dinner will be provided by Smokin Hawg BBQ.

Photo & Video: We will have a professional photographer taking pictures and some Breakfast Television camera taking some video.  Spectators are welcome to take photos and video.  We would love it if you could share them with us afterwards.

Here is a tentative schedule for the day.  We are still working out the details and will post an update early next week.
