CrossFit Open 2016

CFL Athletes!!!

Great job on crushing another year, but as many of you know there is a new season around the corner. No I don’t mean spring…We’re coming up on OPEN SEASON!! February 25th will mark the announcement of the first of 5 workouts designed to push you mentally, and physically. I encourage all of you to sign up and test your fitness and all the hard work you’ve put in for the past year. Do not worry about your skill or strength level, even if you don’t quite have that muscle up yet, you can still benefit from participating in the CrossFit Open. I’m excited to help coordinate with all of you and watch you all push yourselves to the redline in each workout!

 

Our plan for this year is fairly straightforward but we need your help in order for every week to run smooth.

 

1st You need to sign up!!!! Register here and any coach in the gym can answer any questions you have.
2nd We are asking for your help in judging each week’s workouts. These workouts will be scored, and as we only have 4 coaches and over 100 members, there will be a need for extra judging during the workouts. The course is provided through CrossFit and cost is 10$. In the instruction you will learn how to count reps during a workout and what to look for in a no rep i.e. full extension on a box jump or locked out elbows on a pressing movement etc. It’s super easy and will also provide athletes with an idea of what judges are looking for when scoring. Sign up for the Judges Course

 

3rd The workouts will be announced on Thursday of each week. Friday’s WOD will be the Open workout. In addition to Friday we will allow you to complete the workout or try again for a better score on either Saturday at the 9:00 open gym, or on Sunday at 11:00.  At no other times will we be able to accommodate these workouts or be able to judge, so plan accordingly.  

 

4th Workouts each week leading up to the Open WOD will be programmed accordingly so as to set you up for success! Please note though that we are preparing for the unknown and unknowable in these Open workouts so be ready for anything!!!

 

5th Once scored CFL will enter your information and you will be able to track your standing on the CrossFit Games page! We will also post top scores within the gym on the whiteboard!

 

6th Have fun Guys and Gals!!!!! The CrossFit Open is a time of year for you to put your fitness to the test. But also have fun in the process, learn, grow, and come together to help push your fellow CFL family!
