Okay folks, it’s that time of year. Registration is open, and it is time to get after it. Sometimes I feel like a broken record talking to people about why to compete, but you can never hear it enough, nor does it get old. Since we have some new family members, here we go again – and this time I thought I would add some pictures to go along with my lines.
What is the CrossFit Open? The Open is five weeks of workouts, with one workout coming out each week. These workouts will be programmed in class (and competition programming) so all of you will be doing them no matter what. We’ll probably do them on Fridays or Thursday (still undecided), and it will require splitting the classes up in two so we can count reps and each person can be judged to uphold movement standards put in place by CrossFit, Inc. In the end, all 215 athletes will have participated in the same five workouts used worldwide to asses fitness. So since you will be doing all of this anyway, just go ahead and formally sign up for the Open.
Convinced yet? Yes?! Then here you go – sign up! If not, consider the following:
Reasons to Join CrossFit 215’s Affiliate Team in the OPEN!
Reason 1: We are a team and a family, and we need everyone’s support. Regardless of how you think you are going to do, we have people that are going to do well, and we owe it to them to be by their side both in the gym and on paper on our roster. Let’s show the world not necessarily how strong our team is but how strong our family is!
(Rebuttal) Reason 2: “But I am not going to do well…” The Open is not about your performance but your effort. I believe there can be no argument that putting a little skin in the game will aid you in maximizing your effort. It also shows that you are not afraid to show everyone where you are today. It matters none where you are today but more over where you go from here.
(Rebuttal) Reason 3: “But I can’t do everything Rx…” Hopefully a few of you can tell a couple stories about what I am about to say on the members page or below here in comments. This I promise you: if you are staring up at the pull-up bar having never done a toes-to-bar, and that is all that separates from a score of zero and anything else, in that moment you will reach your highest potential, and if it is in you, it will come out that day. Many athletes have experienced getting their first Rx movement in the Open simply because there is no other option. THERE IS NO SCALING! and that is the greatest gift I can give you as a coach.
Reason 4: Once you get passed #2 or #3 above, it is so much fun competing as a team!
Now are you convinced?!?! GOOD! Here you GO!
If you have more questions, feel free to talk me or one of the other coaches. Registration is open, and I am waiting!
