Row’d Royalty 2016 Registration Now Open!

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!

Now, 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 for 4 weeks a rowing workout will be announced. You’ll have 4 days to complete the workout and submit your score.

Registration Opens November 1st, 2016
Cost Per Individual: $15.00



There will be different workouts tested over the 4 weeks. The workouts have been chosen to distinguish the best OVERALL rower, not just the best sprinter or endurance athlete. Every Thursday the workout for the week will be announced. Keep in mind, there may be multiple distances rowed during one week’s workout. The ONLY piece of equipment you need is a Concept 2 Indoor Rower with a PM3 or PM4 Monitor.FIRST WORKOUT RELEASE: Thursday, January 7 at 5:00 PM PST.
