Crossfit Games Open

What does that even mean? Well here is some information.

Once a year, Crossfit holds the "Crossfit Games Open" to test everyone's fitness. It is a 5 week, 5 online workout competition that ranks hundreds of thousands of competitors world wide. This is a chance to test your fitness level and a chance to see your hard work in action! Held mostly in CrossFit affiliates and/or garage gyms, the Open is designed to be accessible to all athletes while rigorous enough to challenge the world's fittest. Top 20 in each region will advance to Regionals. From there, the top 5 in each region will move forward to "The Crossfit Games."

While a small percentage advance to regionals, most athletes pursue the Open to test where they stand as an athlete/competitor.

Here is how we kick off the 3rd annual Open, AKA, "Friday Night Lights" at BBCF:

We encourage all of our members to sign up for the open. Registration begins January 12, 2017. It may seem a little intimidating, but we promise you it will be worth it. Those who sign up are put in a random drawing to be placed on a coaches team. Last year, we had 3 teams. This year, we will have 4 teams: Coach Nando, Coach Victor, Coach Javi, and Coach Oscar. Once the teams are randomly chosen, the fun will begin! T-shirts will be made, cheers will be said, and trash talking may apply...

The week's workout is released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PT. Each time a workout is released, athletes will be given two versions: Rx'd and Scaled. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the Scaled option will be designed to be accessible to the vast majority of athletes who train in CrossFit affiliates. Rx'd will challenge the world's elite.

Now, every Friday beginning February 23,2017, we will be holding a Friday Night Lights. That means, no classes on Friday except Friday Night Lights. Before you begin your workout, you will be given a judge to make sure that you are doing correct standards in each movement. Once the clock begins, it's you against the clock! It's time to shine and show everyone what you've got! There will be a lot things said from opposing teams, but all in all, everyone will be cheering each other on! When you are finished with the workout, place your score onto the Crossfit games website, and viola! You are calculated and you will know where you're ranked for that week! If you think you could do better than your previous score, you will have until Monday before 5pm to place your score into the website.

The Crossfit Games Open is for everyone! So again, don't feel intimidated. We are encouraging our whole box to do this. After all, you're going to end up doing the workouts anyway... So, might as well, right? Sign up for $20, do the workouts, enter your scores, and you will be ranked in relation to your peers in your age division, competition region, state and country!
