What is the CrossFit Open?
The CrossFit Open is an annual 5-week competition that takes place Feb. 21st until March 25th. CrossFit affiliates around the world participate in the Open. EVERYONE is invited and encouraged to participate, regardless of fitness level or experience. Every workout has an RX and scaled option. Know that we can even scale the scaled version further for you. The Open is for EVERYONE! You can also join the global competition at here and see how you stack up against CrossFit athletes around the world.
Why do we do the Open?
We do the Open to grow and enhance our community at Tangletown CrossFit. We want to have fun, test ourselves against our community members and compare ourselves from previous years. The Open gives us a chance to learn what we are good at and what we still need to improve upon.
How will Tangletown CrossFit host the Open workouts?
Beginning February 23rd, we will host the Open workouts every Saturday morning for five weeks. The Saturday morning WOD will be the posted CrossFit Open WOD of that week. If you need different accommodations, we will be offering time Fridays at the 5:30 and 9:30 am classes and both Open Gym times Friday and Sunday. All other arrangements should be made with your team captain.
Everyone who is interested in participating will be drafted to one of five teams this year. These teams will be both RX and scaled and will be scored similar to the CrossFit Open online competition. Scaled members receive half points while RX members receive full points. After the fifth week of the Open, we will be hosting a post-Open PARTY on Saturday, March 23rd. It will be during the party that the winning team is announced.
Ok, how do I get involved?
Registration is you writing your name on our white board at the gym. Talk with a coach about details if necessary. Teams will be released Friday night the 22nd. The first wod is Saturday, the 23rd.
The Open is one of the best events held annually by CrossFit. It’s a great way to be involved in our community, encouraging and cheering on teammates while surrounding you with fitness!
