  3. For entrants whose personal goals do not involve weight loss, how will the competition be scored? One could improve performance and secondarily to that improvement actually gain weight. Also, one could also make decision regarding diet and nutrition that will aid in losing weight quickly but detract from perfomance and fitness levels. That said, can this be simply a performance improvement competition understanding that directionality is weight change (either way) should be a result of improved fitness and not a primary goal? Another option would be body composition improvement as opposed to just merely weight loss.

    Thoughts?

    1. Ian,

      The contest will have 2 winners, one for performance and one for weight loss. Everyone who enters goes into both pools.

      Scoring will be done through a % performance gain and % weight loss. We know people are on different levels and it would be really hard for an experienced CrossFitter to win performance because they probably won’t see the % improvements that a newer CrossFitter will experience. I’m sure people could game the weight loss side of it, but harming performance isn’t a goal of ours and I hope people would realize that when they enter the competition.

      Of course it’s not perfect, but for most people, I think it works. It’s always optional.
