“CrossFit is SO MUCH FUN!…” says hardly anyone ever… until the CrossFit Open begins!

It’s that time of year where we as a community come together as a whole community, and even in teams within our community (read on) to have a few good ol’ fashion throwdowns and a room full of team spirit. You don’t have to be competitive or have been doing CrossFit for a long time to be a part of the fun!

To sum up, The CrossFit Open is 5 weeks of 5 workouts each week, performed with the support of your CrossFit community behind you. These workouts are designed to be performed as a means of testing your fitness this year. It’s called the Open because it’s OPEN to all levels–scaled, Rx and even Masters–yes, we’re talking to you!

“For CrossFit, the particularly offer a way for us to stay in our local box, to have judges from within our own community, and to still have data that is measurable, observable, and repeatable, on a worldwide scale, for us to participate in.” (Why everyone should do the Open, by Brute Strength). In essence, it gives you a bit more purpose to train each day.

This year, we plan to throw in a little bit more camaraderie and a lot more enthusiasm for the CrossFit Open with our CrossFit Intramural Open League (check out our 2018 Open post on Instagram here). Teams will be determined through a DRAFT process led by the CFDP coaches. All who are interested in participating will be assigned to a team, led by a captain–to push one another through these 5 weeks! You IN?

Here’s what you need to do to get started:
1. SIGN UP at games.crossfit.com
2. KEEP coming to your CLASSES; It’s only one month away!
3. Let us know when YOU have signed up; post in the athlete page or tell us in class
