Skip is competing in The Open and wants you to join him!
Today at 6pm the first workout of the 2015 CrossFit Games open will be announced. The Open is a 5 week worldwide CrossFit competition. It is the first phase of several competitive events leading up to the CrossFit Games this July. The Open is truly a competition for everyone. You will compete against other CrossFitters just like you. Last year over 200,000 athletes competed in The Open. The top 20 finishers from each region (we are in the West Region) advance to the Regional competition, where the top 3 Regional finishers advance to the CrossFit Games.
Most of us do The Open to have fun, compete against folks just like us, and to be part of the larger CrossFit community. So far we have 8 people on our team and we want more! We will be doing at least two workouts at other CrossFit gyms in Bozeman. Tomorrow we are heading over to Coldsmoke CrossFit and March 13th we will compete at CrossFit Bozeman. This is a great opportunity to meet other CrossFitters, and see old friends.
The Open is a tremendous opportunity for personal growth. Nearly everyone achieves some kind of physical milestone. You might get your first double under, toes to bar, pull up, or get a PR on your snatch. Let's be honest, none of us are going to make it to Regionals, but some of us might be the top ten in the state, or in the top 100 of our region. You never know until you try. Here's a great article on the reasons to try The Open.
We will be doing The Open workouts every Friday in the gym. Our team will do them together Friday evenings after the 5:30pm class. Don't worry if you can't make the Friday night workout. There is an opportunity to do the workout Sunday with some other local CrossFitters. Won't you join our team?
