I know people CrossFit for different reasons. Some like the challenge, as it’s like a sport. Some want to compete. Some want to come in and get their high-intense work out in. Some want to lose weight. Some want to be stronger….etc. You get the idea. But I do think for ALL CROSSFITTERS, regardless of your overall goal, The Open is a great way to challenge yourself even more AND more importantly be a part of the entire international CrossFit community! For those of you who are new – The Open is a 5 week event where each week a new WOD is presented for ALL CrossFitters to complete – for the best score possible. Standards are a must and all participants have a judge to hold them to those standard. The event is technically the qualifying event for those who want to go to Regionals and ultimately the CF Games….BUT – everyone gets involved to test their abilities and to just see how well they do and where they fall within the global CF Community. There are scaled WODS this year so no worries about Rx. It’s a fun time and we will celebrate the season with mini- events. Swamp Rats, you are good and you should not doubt yourselves and your abilities. I would love to see everyone do this and get in the spirit of the CF competition season!!
