For those of you who don’t know read below about the OPEN
The CrossFit Games season is approaching
The Games season begins with the online Open. Registration is open to all comers. All you need is $20, access to basic equipment commonly found in CrossFit affiliates, and the will to compete in the five-week, five-workout competition.
More than 272,000 people from around the globe competed in 2015. As the largest CrossFit community event of the season, the Open ties together athletes from within the same gym to those in their broader city, country and world.
For five weeks, you—and the hundreds of thousands of other people who signed up—are at the whim of the Director of the Games Dave Castro, taking on workouts that may push you to learn a new skill, improve the skills you already have, or go into a darker place than you’ve ever been before.
You can complete the workouts at a participating CrossFit affiliate in front of a judge, or film your performance from anywhere you want and submit a link as proof.
The week’s workout is released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PT, and scores are due four days later (before 5 p.m. PT Monday). You are free to make as many attempts at the Open workout as you please; your only limit is time.
The open workouts will be posted on the blog each week and on that day the gym will complete the WOD. You don’t have to sign up to participate in the workout.
Every Saturday leading up to the open we will be doing open type WODs to get prepare. You will be partnering up with a fellow athlete each of you will count for the other and help motivate each other.
