The 2014 CrossFit Games season is about to open!!! With that comes the most egalitarian competition of the year: The CrossFit Open. Every year, CrossFit hosts the Open Competition. For 5 weeks, CrossFit releases one workout per week for everyone to do. Every person who registers can then submit his/her score for that workout to the CrossFit Open site and compare that score to the other competitors. The top athletes who compete in the Open move on the Regionals and possibly the Games. Registration is $20 and begins on 1/15/2014. Head over to the CrossFit Games Website for registration.
The first Open workout will post on February 27, 2014, and we will be doing it at Industrial Athletics, the Home of CrossFit Alloy. For those 5 weeks, we will have a designated time slot where our athletes are able to come do the Open workout and receive a validated score to submit to the website. We are planning on this being an event every week and will encourage all members to come support and cheer on those competing. Need a video to pump you up? WATCH THE OPEN VIDEO
Don’t think you are ready for competition? Nonsense, the Open is available to EVERYONE. Even if you aren’t Games level (yet), you can still submit your score and see how you stack up compared to more than 140,000 people around the world. Trust us, it is a blast. Have you ever heard of “Leader Boarding?” You will this year if you are involved in the CrossFit Open.
For now, stay tuned, get registered, and get ready to go.
