The biggest event of the year is right around the corner. The time that every CrossFitter around the world looks forward to has arrived yet again! The CrossFit Open is just a little more than one week away. Starting February 23rd and ending March 27th, this five week, one workout per week event held at your very own gym is a great way to experience the rush of competition for everyone at every skill level.
The cost to participate is only $20 and you can participate by registering here: https://games.crossfit.com/
We will do each Open workout like we have done so in the past. Every Saturday the entire gym will come together and form competitive Heats. Each heat attacking the workout one after the other. We will need judges. Anyone can judge, and you are encouraged to help judge, especially if you are a competitor. If you are not interested in competing but would like to help out by judging that would be a great help to us! You can also become a certified judge by taking the judges course which can be found here: https://oc.crossfit.com/course?id=12 A certified judge is needed in judging potential Regional qualifiers.
Remember, anyone can compete! Every workout offers a prescribed and a scaled version just like you would have at your normal CrossFit Las Cruces class. The Open is a great opportunity to see the gym that you belong to as a whole competing together and cheering each other on. It’s a great way to push yourself to new heights in intensity and quality of movement. It also gives everyone a very specific goal to stay motivated with for five weeks. You always train harder when there is a specific goal and timeline. If you have any questions about the Open ask a coach for more info and see if its a good fit for you.
