As usual, we’re going to host The CrossFit Open at our gym again this year! We’ve hosted and judged The CrossFit Open every year since we opened in 2009. Our judges successfully take and pass the CrossFit Judges Course every year in order to be able to officially judge competitors.
If you missed The Open this year, plan on coming back next year to cheer & compete with us. After the competition each week, we usually hang out and visit, so plan on joining us for that too.
You don’t have to be a hard core CrossFitter to compete in The Open! We have all levels of athletes participating in these workouts every year; from beginner to super star, everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate. It’s a lot of fun!
If you’d like to participate at our facility for the open, please fill our our registration form so we can know who is planning on coming. Please come in early to fill out a waiver and any paperwork we need filled out.
If you are a competitor who expects to do well enough to possibly qualify for regionals, YOU are responsible for making your own video that meets all of the standards set up by CrossFit HQ of your performance. We take no responsibility for your video or its production. You must bring your own video equipment, your own items required to verify such a video and anything you may need (tripod, measuring tape, masking tape, friend to stand in frame, visible timepiece, etc.) to do what needs to be done to meet HQs standard. We will do what we can to help you (like give you a boost while you’re measuring the wall ball target), but there may be too many people for us to do too much, so please bring your camera man or whatever you need.
We will do our best to give everyone reasonable time to introduce themselves and verify weights & measures for their videos, but the show must go on. So after that time is up, we’re starting the WOD with or without you.
If you are a competitor who expects to make it to regionals, please let us know so we can have a CrossFit Official Judge judge your WOD as you video tape it.
NOTE: You do not have to be registered for the open at games.crossfit.com in order to come do the Open WODs with us here at The Box. You have to register with CrossFit only if you want to officially compete and appear on the international leader board. If you are not a member of CrossFit 901 at The Box, you’ll need to
pay a $20 drop in fee just like any other time one drops in. Come on in and do the CrossFit Open with us for FREE!
We will be doing this every Friday night during the Open from 4 to 8pm. Plan on hanging out after you work out to cheer on those still going and celebrate with a BYOB & BYO snacks type shin dig!
So far we’ve had a great time each week! Don’t miss out. Bring your friends, family and other competitors!
