The Open is almost here! The first workout will be announced this Thursday night! If you haven’t signed up for the Open yet, no need to worry. You still have time! Just a few quick notes: if you’re logging in using last year’s information, please be sure that you log in and reselect CrossFit Southie as your affiliate – that information does not transfer from year to year. Also, our team name has changed to CrossFit Southie II. If you have already signed up under the previous name, you’ve automatically been moved to this new team.
Take a look below for a recap on what the Open is and how it works, and get pumped to prove your fitness!
What: CrossFit’s largest, most inclusive competition ever! The Open is technically the first step in qualifying for the Reebok CrossFit Games, but it’s also so much more. It’s an opportunity to throw your hat in the ring and test your fitness against CrossFitters from all over the world.
When: Starting on Thursday, February 27th, CrossFit HQ will release one workout a week for five weeks. We’ll be testing the workouts here every Friday in classes and on Sunday mornings.
Where: Right here at CrossFit Southie! You don’t even have to travel to compete. Show up to a regularly scheduled Friday class during the Open, and we’ll take you through everything you need to do in order to compete. It’s that easy!
Who: Everyone! The Open is designed for CrossFitters of all experience and ability levels to compete together. The workouts are accessible enough for everyone to participate to some extent. Regardless of whether or not you move on to compete at Regionals, you can be a part of something huge in our community!
Why: Why not?! The Open is a great way to test your fitness and get a taste of the competitive side of CrossFit. It helps us identify our weaknesses and pushes us to give our best effort during every workout. Plus, your scores can help send two Southie teams to Regionals this year!
