Are You Ready For The CrossFit Games Season?

By: 0

We are just over two weeks into the new year, which means it is time to start planning for the 2018 CrossFit Games Season.  The CrossFit Games Season kicks off in just over 30 days with the world-wide CrossFit Open on Thursday, February 22nd.  

What is the CrossFit Open?

The CrossFit Open is a world-wide event with the entire CrossFit community.  The CrossFit Open consists of 5 events that takes place over 5 consecutive weeks. Each of these events is kept secret until a live broadcast every Thursday night at 8pm EST (5pm PST).  At this point, athletes will have until the following Monday at 8pm (5pm PST) to complete the event and submit their scores to the worldwide leader board.   

There are 2 ways for athletes to submit their scores.

  1. By completing the event at a CrossFit Affiliate with a certified judge
  2. By submitting video evidence of the event.  

Who Should Do the CrossFit Open?

The CrossFit Open is for everyone, whether you’re a CrossFit veteran or just finished your first month of CrossFit.  All of the CrossFit Open events will have scaled versions available, with separate divisions for teens (14-18 years of age) and master’s (35+ years of age).   

Why Should I Do the CrossFit Open?

The CrossFit Open is the one time a year that CrossFit athletes, just like you, from around the world come together and test their fitness.  The CrossFit Open allows you to measure yourself against the fittest on earth as well as your friends.  The Open is also a great way to track your own progress year after year.  

During the 2018 CrossFit Open, Stay Strong CrossFit will be completing each of the CrossFit Open events during Friday classes.  Every Friday evening we will be hosting the “Friday Night Lights”  as our main event.  During “Friday Night Lights” athletes will be able to sign up for heats and go head to head with other athletes in that weeks Open event.  If an athlete is not able to attend class on Friday or wants to repeat the event, they may perform the event on Saturday or Monday during Open Gym.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Open please feel free to reach out to one of the Stay Strong Coaches.
