On the 24th Febuary, the majority of our CrossFit members started something life changing.
They registered for the 2017 CrossFit Opens.
What are the CrossFit Opens?
It starts as an online national CrossFit competition to determine who goes the CrossFit games. Anyone and everyone can participate. It’s held over five weeks in February-March; a new workout is released on each Friday and competitors complete, usually at an affiliate, their scores is then submitted online. They have an RX version and a scaled version.
Now I know what your thinking whats so special about an online competition?
It’s what it leaves in it’s wake….
For five weeks everyone has been working really hard to do things they have never done before. Some of the workouts can be extremely challenging mentally and physically.
There is no way of preparing for the workouts except to just turn up to normal training and get good at the mechanics of all the movements and just… train.
I have formed some of the strongest relationships through the Opens because we did something hard together both mentally and physically.
We sweated together, we hurt together and we pushed through together.
We created a bond where you can rarely get anywhere else…
