The History: (courtesy CrossFit.com)
The first Painstorm was a gathering of some of the UK Crossfitters. Given that some of them traveled up 6 hours (by bus) for the meeting, no one felt like doing Fran and calling it a day. So the first Painstorm was something like warm up one round of Helen, followed by a typical CF WOD, followed by the Secret Service Snatch test, and of course partying afterwards.

The Painstorm soon evolved into a monthly competition between CrossFit London (represented by Kempie and Karl Steadman), CrossFit Central Scotland (represented by Davie and his crew) some displaced US military (Gordon Limb and some marine flyers in London, Brian White and his group called Team Fallujah) and the group from Brand X. Dan Colson from CrossFit Rockford has "happily" joined in now as well.

Karl, Davie, Jeff, and Dan take turns creating the Painstorms. They tend to be long efforts, in keeping with the original tradition. Weights and reps are scaled of course, so everyone can join in.
