The CrossFit Open is right around the corner. Are you registered? Are you ready? If you could use a bit of extra help, sign up for 1:1 personal training sessions. And don’t forget, you can always put in extra practice time during Open Gym!
But Coach, what if I’m new to CrossFit?
Participating in your first CrossFit Games Open is the ultimate learning experience, and the scaled division makes the competition especially inviting for novice CrossFitters. Beginners to CrossFit should relish in the fact that they can’t check the leaderboard for their scores from past years. For this one year, ignorance is bliss. Work hard, have fun, and learn what the Open is all about because you only have one first time. Here are five ways to make the most of your experience.
Who should sign up for the Open?
You should! Everyone who does CrossFit should sign up for the Open. Not only is it a fun experience, but the Open will push you outside of your comfort zone in ways that you really don’t expect. Sure, CrossFit already does that, but with the Open it’s different. It’s a chance to compete with hundreds of thousands of folks around the country and see not only how you stack up against them, but by registering year after year you can see how you stack up against yourself.
Now go here to read an excellent explanation of the CrossFit Open and click the big blue button to see the schedule, then click on the big red button to register if you haven’t already signed up. We’re in this together, let’s do it!!
