This year, the worldwide CrossFit Open begins on October 10th! The Open is like CrossFit Christmas! Each week, for 5 weeks, CrossFit will release workouts on Thursday night. The workout will be performed at affiliates all around the world (including here ), and CrossFitters who are officially registered will post their results to the world wide leaderboard. For competitive athletes, this is one of the ways to make it to the big show...the CrossFit Games. For us mortals, the Open is a chance to see how we stack up against other athletes in our age division, see our own improvement each year, and....PR city baby! Last year we started calling the Open "PR Friday.” There’s something about the open that motivates us to push a little harder and work for those skills we have been trying to master.
WELCOME TO THE INTRAMURAL OPEN!
Last year we had an awesome kick off party with a DJ and some time to hang with our CrossFit peeps. This year we are going bigger! We are going to have an absolute blast with the Intramural Open. Think Open meets WOD Meisters. We will still be doing the WODs on Friday as our regular programming and we still highly encourage everyone to officially sign up for the Open. There will be things like DJs, surprises, opportunities to go head to head with your boxmates, and a whole lot of fun and camaraderie.Scoring for the intramural Open will not be based on your score on the WODs. We will post more on the scoring later. HINT: Officially signing up for the Open, and posting to the world wide leader board (regardless of score) is one of the ways to earn points for your team.
