The Open is upon us! Starting on Feb. 23rd! For me, much like many of you, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
What is the Open?
The Open is a five week, one workout a week, worldwide CrossFit competition which decides who moves on to Regionals and eventually The CrossFit Games.
Who is invited?
All of us can sign up for The Open. Registration is at games.crossfit.com and it costs $20 there.
What changes around here?
Nothing. We still have all of our normal class times. The Open WOD will be announced on Thursday nights and you’ll have the choice to do it on Friday during class, at Friday Night Lights at 5:30pm, and/or Monday at 4:15pm.
Do I have to be in shape to do The Open?
There is a scaled and RX division and I encourage everyone to participate no matter if you are seasoned or just started.
Can I hurt the team?
No. When you sign up, get on the CrossFit Pampa A-team. Each week they simply take the top 3 guy scores and top 3 girl scores and that becomes our team score. If you miss a week or have a bad week, you can’t hurt us, only help us.
Why should I want to do The Open?
This is the largest fitness competition in the entire world! This is OUR CrossFit Games! You are a CrossFitter, and this is a CrossFit competition. Need something to push you, your training, and your nutrition? This is it. And you don’t even have to go out of town and pay a bunch of money. Simply show up and compete along side all of your friends like you do every day anyways.
