The Open has always been an awesome experience for me. Yea I was scared to death when I first participated in 2010 (4 months after I started CrossFit).
Yes there were workouts and weights where I looked at what they were asking for and said “No Way”. But I also ended up showing myself that “no way” was my way of doubting my own potential. I realized by doing the Open that I was a lot stronger than I thought. I was more capable of things that I allowed myself to think because I mentally thought it was impossible. I’ve made a lot of PRS during the Open – which is priceless!
As a coach, I think the Open highlights that CrossFit is not only about working out and becoming fit and healthy. It showcases the heart of what CrossFit is about and that it’s all about the community and the support of other friends who are just as crazy as you. The energy is through the roof and the adrenaline rush you get from not only your successes but of your friends is such a memorable experience. Hope you’ll join us for a crazy 5 weeks
The Open is a fun, community event. It brings together the entire gym and allows for everyone to workout together. Friday Night Lights workouts are some of the most memorable workouts. The Open allows for everyone to compete in a comfortable and supportive environment. It challenges you and many 1sts happen (C2B, Muscle Ups, HSPU’s, etc)
Not to mention the emotional stages of the open…
