The 2016 is HERE! First workout is announced THIS WEEK!
Can you believe the 2016 CrossFit Open is almost here?! Whether this is your first Open or your sixth, this is one of the most exciting times of the year in the CrossFit community. For five weeks in a row, CrossFitters from all over the world will compete in the Open: each week, a workout will be released. We will complete these workouts in class, and you will have a chance to submit your scores online and see where you stack up within the gym, within the Region, within your age group, or across the whole world!

Regardless of whether or not you consider yourself a “competitor,” these five weeks are a great way to get involved with the CrossFit Southie community, and the entire global CrossFit community. There is even a scaled division! It is truly meant for everyone. We hope that each and every one of you will sign up and participate in the Open. Let’s show everyone how strong Southie truly is by having one of the largest Open rosters in the Northeast!

When will we complete the workouts?

Each Thursday night at 8pm, the Open WOD will be announced on games.crossfit.com We will partner up, judge each other, and complete the workout during all classes on Friday. Can’t make it on Friday? No worries! On Saturdays from 1-2pm, we’ll be running more heats of the workout. That time doesn’t work either? Come on in any time before Monday night to complete the workout.

      Way to fight through those MUs, D. I couldn’t believe you got out of the dip on a couple of those.

      • Diana O'Neil 02/24/2016 at 3:46 pm

        After failing the first mup attempt I was not going to let it happen again…but man oh man pressing out the dip was brutal today. Thanks for sharing the rings btw 🙂
