Pound For Pound 2011 was a two-day CrossFit competition hosted by CrossFit Montgomery and held at the Union Station Train Shed in downtown Montgomery on April 9-10, 2011. CrossFit Montgomery joined CrossFit Garage, a CrossFit affiliate in Woodstock, Georgia, and five other Southeast affiliates in hosting an event for the Garage Games 2011 Series. Pound For Pound was the third of the 15 competitions to be held in 2011 and the only event in the Series to be held in Alabama.
Event sponsors included Cisco Systems, Inc., Fastenal, LARABAR, and Paleotrition. Series sponsors included Again Faster Equipment, Concept2 Rowing, Gulf Management Systems, inov-8, Life As Rx and Progenex.
Individuals registering for Pound For Pound chose among five divisions: beginner, intermediate, advanced, masters and teams. Participants completed three to four workouts over the course of two days. Prizes were given to the top ranked participants in each division.
In an attempt to identify the fittest, pound for pound, we followed the approach used by Olympic and Powerlifting competitions when they rank all weight divisions to identify the best athlete. Advanced and intermediate athletes were weighed-in and assigned to a weight class during registration.
