Hi Everyone!

The Prototype Open is back and better than ever! We have over 120 of our amazing members signed up and competing on two teams. The teams are Baby Got Black (#BabyGotBlack) led by 2018 Community Member of the Year Dr. Annie Powell and team Abominable Snow Monsters of the North (#TeamAbominable) led by 2018 Community Member of the Year Col. Brent French.
As you all know, 19.1 is now officially in the books! It was an elegantly brutal workout which included Wall Ball Shots and Rowing for calories. After the workout was announced Thursday night, two of our athletes went head to head to kick off the 2019 Prototype Open, Mark DiRienzo from#BabyGotBlack and Joey Walker from #TeamAbominable. Joey bested Mark in the head to head earning himself an additional 5 points. Mark being the runner up earned his team an additional 3 points! Below is the full workout:

15 min AMRAP
19 Wall Ball Shots (20/14lb; 10/9ft target)
