From time to time there are things posted up on social media that I know some of our members may not get to see. Posts onto Facebook being a good example. With a few minor changes from how we did things last year, here’s a message from Rosanne that I would like to share with everyone who may not have had the chance to see this . . . .
The 2016 CrossFit Open is upon us and begins on February 25th. We encourage everyone to sign up! Go to games.crossfit.com and sign up under Crossfit Factory Square. When registering for the Opens, please include your affiliate name and ALSO your TEAM Name both need to be under Crossfit Factory Square. This time of year is very exciting at the gym, there’s a ton of ENERGY at the box each week, which gives us chills to watch! Each and every athlete can do these workouts so please sign up, you will be happy (and beyond proud of yourself) you did.
In the Open, athletes are given four days to perform the week’s workout and submit their scores. Each week athletes will be given two versions: Rx’d and Scaled. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the Scaled option is designed to be accessible to the vast majority of athletes. Rx’d will challenge the world’s elite. Thursday’s the WOD is released, and you have until Monday at 8pm to enter your score. There are no exceptions to this deadline.
Five Weeks | Feb. 25 – March 28, 2016
This year we are going to do something a little different. Each Thursday when the workout is announced at 8pm, we will watch it at the gym and then two of our very own assigned coaches will go Head to Head that very NIGHT! We are also going to let athletes call out another athlete to perform the newly announced workout that night. We hope everyone will come down to the gym to watch the announcement of the workout and then watch our coaches and athletes perform!
