Significance of the Open ( post below is courtesy of our friends from CrossFit Virtuosity)
The CrossFit Games Open is the annual first stage of the CrossFit Games. Each week for 5 weeks, CrossFit releases a workout, and hundreds of thousands of people around the world complete it and post their scores to the CrossFit Games website. Athletes who post the best overall scores in the Open for each region will proceed to the 2020 CrossFit Games in Wisconsin.
The Open is for EVERYONE. See how you stack up! The Games website lets you compare yourself to your friends, your enemies, everyone else in your gym, everyone else in your state, your region, or the world. You can even see how you did relative to everyone who is the same age, gender, height, and weight as you.
If you want to get a really visceral feel for how fit it’s possible to be, you can directly compare yourself to last year’s Games champions.
This is a golden opportunity to find out how fit you really are (on a global scale!) It’s exciting, a little terrifying, and will leave you with a great sense of accomplishment.
Here at Bear Mountain CrossFit, we’ll be running the weekly Open workout for 5 weeks on Fridays beginning Friday, October 10th. If you attend on a Friday, you will do the Open workout regardless of whether you’re officially registered! As we have in previous years, this is the return of Friday Night Lights. Stay tuned for more info!
