Hey CrossFit Beat – time to sign up for The Open!
What’s that? You don’t know what The Open is? No worries, we’ve got you covered. From the CrossFit Games web page:
The CrossFit Games Open is the world’s premier test of fitness. Since 2011, the five-week five-workout online competition has accurately ranked the fitness of thousands of competitors.
Each time a workout is released, athletes will be given two versions: Rx’d and Scaled. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the Scaled option will be designed to be accessible to the vast majority of athletes who train in CrossFit affiliates. Rx’d will challenge the world’s elite.
More than 272,000 people from around the globe competed in the Open last year. 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.
The Open is OUR chance to show some BeatBox pride and see how we stack up against other CrossFit gyms in Boulder, in Colorado, and around the world. What’s more, it’s an opportunity to benchmark your fitness and to cheer each other on. Every year, the atmosphere around the event leads people to accomplish things they never thought possible – their first double-under, their first pull-up, their first muscle-up.
Registration costs $20. CrossFit Beat will be doing the Open workouts as our daily WODs every Friday from Feb 26 through Mar 25, regardless of whether you’re registered or not. Our Friday evening workout will also be set up as a sort of Friday Night Lights style event, complete with fun and beers afterward. More details on that to come soon.
If you need help signing up, check out the links below, or ask Adam or Heather next time you’re in class.
I’m registered – are you?
