The Open is Coming



The 2016 CrossFit Open begins on February 25th!
The Crossfit Open is the first round of the CrossFit Games and consists of 1 workout each week over the course of 5 weeks. In the coming month and a half, we will be re-testing Open workouts on Thursdays from previous years to prepare and get in the Open spirit. Some days we will even partner up and judge each other, so you are all familiar with the process. When the open officially starts on the 25th of February, we will be completing these workouts in classes as the Workout of the Day. There is no reason for you to not sign up, as you will be attending class anyway, right?

What’s the point, I don’t plan on making it to Regionals, you say? The Open is fun! It is designed so you push yourself to your limit, see how you improve year to year and find out the areas where you could use some extra improvement, making your training more focused in the next coming year. Additionally, if a wheelhouse WOD comes up and you crush it, your score will be contributed to the team and can help a CrossFit Southie team to Regionals this year!

We will have more info describing the Open, how to sign up, how to contribute to the team, etc.. in coming weeks. Keep training hard and get excited!

    incorporated some boxing did some rowing and had to do burpees every time I used the word can’t (little bit of an eye opener there) loved it stomach was on fire before class even ended.
