The first CrossFit Games Open workout will be announced this Wednesday. If you still haven’t signed up here are some good reasons to take the jump:
1. It is all Inclusive
By design, these workouts are meant for nearly everyone to complete at least some portion. For example, last year one workout was 12 minutes to complete 150 Wall Balls/90 Double Unders and then 30 Muscle Ups. All of you can complete some wall balls and most would either get to or make it through the double unders. Other movements have included deadlifts, box jumps, snatches, toes to bar, thrusters and pull ups.
2. You can discover your weaknesses
Maybe you will dominate a primarily weightlifting workout but struggle at a gymnastics workout. Comparing yourself to your peers will show you the areas that you need to work on and help direct your training.
3. It will be fun!
Every Friday will be a chance for us all to come together and cheer each other on. There will be many inspiring moments during the 5 weeks and then we can all relax and revel in our accomplishments after.
4. You will have a legit score to compare
We will all review the standards and run the workouts in heats which will allow everyone to have a judge. That extra set of eyes always brings out the best in people.
5. See your growth
Come this time next year you will be able to compare and see how you have improved relative to the rest of the CrossFit world. Perhaps, you can aim to be top 50% this year and then top 30% next year.
6. Reignite your competitive spirit!
With so many former athletes at the gym I am sure some of you miss all of the competitions. Using the filters you can compete against people in our region, your age group or our state.
7. You will surprise yourself
Sometimes it takes that little extra push of competition to get yourself to put a little extra weight on the bar or keep pushing it for those last painful minute. Get signed up and you will be more accountable and many of you will achieve things you weren’t sure you could before.
If you want to sign up register under our affiliate here. If you don’t officially sign up no worries. We will be running the Open Workout in all of our Friday classes.
Remember we are trying to get as many people as possible in our Friday night class. There will be no limit on the attendance for that and we will bring in some beverages to enjoy after your workout!
If there are any questions still ask about it in class!
