Challenge Rx takes competition to a new level with the introduction of skill based competition by limiting the size of competition groups, offering paid judging positions, and Free WOD management and athlete performance tracking for boxes. All this with high charitable integration! With Challenge Rx everyone can feel like they have a chance to win!
Challenge Rx is:
We level the playing field by using a power output formula for athlete skill level assessment which will only allow athletes with similar power output to compete against each other! The days of being shorter, taller, or skinnier being EXCUSES for sucking at burpees etc… are gone. Our proprietary physics formula takes height, weight, leg length, arm length into account in the calculation. Size no longer matters.

One incredible thing about the community which we are surrounded by is the overwhelming encouragement and willingness to help as new members join and as old members struggle. One of the chief goals of Challenge Rx is to create an interface and an opportunity for users to give back to the community that has given us all so much. For this reason, we have integrated a number of popular charities to compete for or to donate winnings from a challenge.

Challenge Rx originated because my brother and I have been CrossFitting for a number of years and CrossFit has become a passion of ours. True to brotherly form, we are extremely competitive with each other. Every time one of us gets a personal record (PR) we send it to the other and have to accept, for a moment, that my brother is better than me at something. This does not sit well with us, it drives us to work harder. This sibling rivalry is very apparent in the Open workouts.
We quickly realized that we were not yet competitive with elite level athletes, however, doing the Open workouts knowing my brother was trying to beat my score kept both of us working hard. That’s how Challenge Rx was born. Challenge Rx provides the athlete an opportunity to test their limits and know that if they don’t keep pushing, their brother, sister, best friend, or worst enemy is going to win. Whether it’s made obvious or not, true CrossFitters, like any great athlete, key in with someone each WOD that is near their fitness level to chase, beat and compete against. This mentality helps to make people stronger competitors and athletes. We’ve created Challenge Rx to closely rank and group users based on skill level, determined by average power output established by WOD history, so when athletes compete using Challenge Rx they can perform the workouts with the mentality of the person that pushes hardest will win.
