We are now only a few weeks away from one of the most exciting times to be a CrossFitter. The 2018 CrossFit Open.
If you are new to CrossFit, the Open is basically a five-week test of fitness. During these five weeks CrossFit Games Director Dave Castro will announce a workout each Thursday night. Then athletes have until Monday evening to complete that workout in the presence of a judge and enter their scores online.
Anyone can participate in the Open as it is designed to be accessible to all fitness levels and includes an option for scaling each of the workouts. There is a division for everyone including RX, Scaled, Teens and Masters.
If you haven’t signed up yet, here are 5 excellent reasons why you should.
LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF
It’s a great chance to test your fitness in classic CrossFit style workouts. Everyone who participates in the Open learns something new about themselves whether it is finding a brand new skill or discovering a weakness they need to develop.
BE PART OF SOMETHING GLOBAL
You get to compare yourself with the entire global CrossFit community. Over 300,000 CrossFitters around the world will also be doing the Open. Don’t get left out.
BE A PRO
You get to act like a professional athlete for these 5 weeks. You are trying to qualify for CrossFit’s version of the Olympic Games, so it’s actually the truth.
In the Open Tia Toomey ( her great granda was from the Shore Road) will be doing the same workout as you in a CrossFit affiliate in the presence of a judge, just like you.
The 2018 leaderboard could read: 1. Tia Toomey, 2. Kara Webb, 3. You??
The buzz & excitement in the gym is always special during the Open, there is usually someone getting their first ever pull up, toes to bar, handstand push up, muscle up etc. It could be you….
YOU MAY AS WELL
We are going to do the workouts in class anyway, so you may as well be registered.
After all, it’s always better to regret something you did than something you didn’t do….
Registration is already open and the first workout, 18.1, will be announced on the 22nd February.
