Beginning Thursday, February 26th, and continuing for the next 4 weeks, CrossFit HQ will release a workout online. It will contain movement standards, prescribed weight, etc. Athletes have until the following Monday (4 days) to complete the workout in a CrossFit Affiliate (our gym), in front of a judge, and submit their score online. Once the deadline is reached, athletes are ranked both in their respective region & worldwide, with other CrossFitters. The top athletes in each region then move on and compete for a spot at the CrossFit Games (which you’ve probably seen on ESPN).
“The Open” is a great opportunity for many things! It helps keep CrossFit Affiliates legit – making sure we are holding our members accountable to the CrossFit standards for all of the movements & making sure our programming (or WOD choices) are in line with CrossFit WOD’s. It gives CrossFitters an opportunity to see where they stand against CrossFitters around the world! It’s a great way to take your performance to the next level – remember how you felt after you competed in the Slavestealer Throwdown? You can have that experience every week for 5 weeks. It’s a fun way to be part of our community at CrossFit Vapor! We are all in this together!!
I know you’re thinking, “I”m not going to win” or “I know how I compare already” or “I’ll just do the workouts & not sign up” or a million other excuses and reasons not to sign up. STOP IT!! For every excuse you can give, we can give you a reason TO sign up. Like, this year there is actually a “scaled” division with modifications!! We will do the workouts at the gym during regular class times as well as Saturday mornings, so you’re going to do them anyway! I can go on and on and on….
So, click HERE and sign up. There is lots more info there as well. We will continue to remind you until the 26th!! Make it happen.
