THE STORY

12 Labours CrossFit, located in Annapolis and Columbia, Maryland has created a movement initiative for affiliates around the globe called The Burpee Hour. It was initially programmed for a Saturday workout at the affiliate level to raise money for our favorite restaurant in town but now everyone has the ability to participate. We realized that everyone in this community loves suffering together, so we thought why not something truly awful like an hour of straight burpees that takes absolutely no skill, no equipment, and no gym. After doing something like that our first thought was “Wow this post workout meal is going to be epic.” With that simple idea of a nasty workout, followed by an even more epic meal, the initiative was born. 


The only thing we are asking people to do is when the workout is over, pick your favorite local spot to eat and order takeout. The workout is free, and entering your score and seeing where you stack up in the world is free. Everyone is being affected by this pandemic, gyms and restaurants alike. We like many CrossFit Affiliates worldwide have seen incredible support from our community, and we wanted a way to extend that to our favorite local restaurants. If we have learned everything over the years, it's that CrossFitters love suffering together, and love their cheat meals. 


So grab your friends and family members to perform one of the staple movements within the CrossFit community…for an hour. Athletes that participate will have their name displayed on a community leaderboard and have the ability to filter by gender, CrossFit affiliate, age, and state, and country. 


Post up your workout, that epic cheat meal that took you 4 days the contemplate, and tag the restaurant you decided was worthy of following a workout like this. Use the hashtags #theburpeehour and #burpeesfortakeout to we can show that the CrossFit Community is here to stay, and we support small business through this difficult time.
