Hey CFR, the CrossFit Open is getting close and registration is open! For those of you unaware of what the “Open” is, read and then watch the video below.
The Open is the first stage of the CrossFit Games season and the largest community event of the year. Every year, hundreds of thousands of athletes come together to compete in the worldwide, online competition.
Anyone aged 14 or older can compete. All you have to do is sign up at Games.CrossFit.com and log your score each week. Workouts are released on Thursdays at 5 p.m. PT, and athletes have four days to complete the workout for the week and submit their score. Scores are due before 5 p.m. PT the following Monday. Complete the workouts at a CrossFit affiliate with a judge, or film your effort from anywhere in the world and submit a link as proof.
The Open offers two versions of each workout, scaled and Rx’d. The scaled option makes the event all-inclusive. All athletes can compare their results to others worldwide, regionally, by age or within their own gyms. An official CrossFit Games app will be available in late January, which will focus on your own personal performance in the Open.
At the end of five weeks, the fittest move on to the next stages of competition: the Regionals and the Online Qualifier.
At CFR we will have a 5 week, “Friday Night Lights” event at the gym starting Feb 22nd, where whoever would like to participate will have the chance to complete the Open workouts with others who are either competing or just enjoy the “hyped up” atmosphere! Although we will be doing these workouts for our daily classes all day on Fridays, the event will be open to everyone, just depends if you want to attend or if your schedule allows!
