Row’d Royalty was born in 2012 at Diablo CrossFit in Pleasant Hill, California. Several athletes claimed to be the “best rower in the gym” and were eager to prove themselves. All members were encouraged to participate, even if only for fun. The response was incredible, and everyone had a blast – because anyone can row!
This year, Diablo is opening Row’d Royalty to the whole CrossFit community. Let’s find out who the best rowers are in our affiliates and in our community! Each week, Starting January 7th, for 4 weeks a rowing workout will be announced. You’ll have 5 days to complete the workout and submit your score. Video submission may be required for Top 5 scores.
