The Open

Now that it is officially 2017 we can focus on what's ahead for us as CrossFitters. Some of you may know what the CrossFit Games Open is, while to others this may be brand new. Here is a brief overview:

The Open is a 5-week event in which you register, pay $20, complete 1 workout each week, and submit your score along with hundreds of thousands of other athletes (including everyone who goes to the CrossFit Games). It begins February 25. The workouts are released Thursday evening, and we will program the workouts every Friday for the entire gym - there are scaled options.

If you are thinking that you aren't good enough to participate, that your score won't be in the top % of our region, if you don't want to spend the $20, so you shouldn't sign up for it, YOU'RE WRONG.

We do the Open every year. No, we don't have aspirations to go to the next level of Regionals or the Games, but view this as an opportunity to participate in an event with people just like us in other gyms around the world. You don't get that opportunity any other time besides the Open. The workouts are hard but they are fun! And it is fun to do them together as a gym and to judge someone else and cheer them on.
