The 2016 CrossFit Games Open Is Upon Us!
Have you signed up for the Open yet?
CrossFitters around Los Angeles, California, the US and around the world are all preparing as the Open approaches us in less than a month ! The Open is the first in a three part series to find the fittest woman, man and team on earth. Even though you may be thinking, “But, I’m not good enough to compete with those people,” let me reassure you that the Open is not for them, it’s for us!
The Open workouts are designed so that just about anyone can do them! From the CrossFitter that started 2 years ago to the CrossFitter that started 2 months ago! Starting Thursday, Feb. 25th, the first Open workout of 2016 will be released at 5pm. You will have until that following Monday to do the workout and submit your scores online by 5pm. The Open will continue for another 4 weeks with that exact format until the end of March. After those 5 weeks, all scores will be averaged out and the top 20 women, men and top 15 teams in each region will move on to Regionals!
Starting Saturday, Feb. 27th, we will be hosting the Open event at CFLF from 10am-12pm! We invite and encourage you all to come out, get your Open workout on, have some BBQ and enjoy these 5 weeks with us as we make our mark as the athletes of CFLF!
Now listen, I know most of you will read this and consider not doing it, but I want you to really think about doing it. Here are my reasons why:
1. This is the largest CrossFit competition you’ll ever do, and the cheapest! (It’s only $20!)
2. We are doing this as an event with the community on Saturday’s from 10am-12pm and we’ll be barbecuing after!
3. It’s meant for everyone at any level, there will be an RX and SCALED division! And you can choose each week which one you want to do!
4. This is for you! This tracks your progress to see how far you’ve come since you started CrossFit!
5. This is the most fun you’ll have doing CrossFit with your friends and our awesome community!
The Open is really about you. It’s about beating your old self. It’s about PR’s and and overcoming all those obstacles that were once super tough for you. You will discover how far you can push yourself, you are going to do things you never thought you were able to do and for the first time, it’ll be in a competition setting. It’s going to be the most exciting thing you’ll experience in CrossFit and we’re all going to be there together! That’s what makes it so awesome, that we’re doing it together as a community. We’ll be sharing in the challenges and obstacles of what the Open is going to bring and that’s why I think you should sign up for the Open!
This will be my fourth Open and it’s always fun to see how much I’ve improved. 2016 will be my best year yet because I’ve been training to beat the old Pam! This is also my first Open in which I will be trying to place as close as I can to the regional girls, but am looking forward to actually going and competing next year! And I want you all to join in this journey with me!
All you have to do is go to games.crossfit.com, make a profile, pay $20, find CrossFit Los Feliz as your affiliate and boom, you’re ready for the 2016 CrossFit Games Open! Hope to see y’all on our first Open event on Saturday, Feb. 27th! Deadline to sign up is Monday, Feb. 29th!
