The Open is coming, the Open is coming!!! Who’s excited for this year’s CrossFit Games 2018 Open!? Not sure what the Open really is? Here is a description from games.crossfit.com themselves…
So there ya go, 5 weeks of testing your fitness!! Sure,
most none of us will be advancing to regionals, let alone the CrossFit Games (this year anyways 😉 ), but the Open is 5 weeks of fun, community, anticipation, adrenaline, pain, PRs, new bests, excitement for how much you’ve improved from last year and how much better you’ll be by next year!!!
As mentioned above, there is a scaled & Rx version of every workout (as well as teens & masters), so really it’s for any and everyone! Head to games.crossfit.com to get signed up!
Each year, we try to add a fun new twist to the Open at CFP! This year, we are still planning to host each Open workout on Saturday mornings. We generally run 2 heats per class so athletes can count each other’s reps. Depending on the workout, the classes often run over, so just be prepared for that. The last week of the Open, we come together on Friday night to complete the last workout Friday Night Lights style. We celebrate with food & drinks and cheers to another year’s Open complete! So mark your calendar for Friday, March 23rd and don’t miss it!!
Now for the fun spin this year! We are getting CFP 2018 Open shirts made!! All who:
- purchase a CFP Open shirt
- complete the Open workout each week (either at CFP or another affiliate if you’re traveling), Rx or scaled
- post a picture or video each week tagging CrossFit Pineville (@crossfitpineville) to social media during the Open
Each week you complete the WOD and post, you will be entered into a drawing for a new pair of shoes!!! (max 5 entries)
You do not have to be officially registered for the Open to qualify, although we think that makes it way more fun!! You do have to log all your scores into Wodify and complete them within each weekly time frame. Social media posts can be a picture or video, can show a PR from the Open, something you learned about yourself, a goal for next year’s Open, etc. Possibilities are endless!
So be on the lookout for our t-shirt design & sign-up sheet at the gym very soon and get excited because the Open is coming!!!
