As February approaches, it can mean only one thing – The Open is BACK.

The Open is a yearly online CrossFit competition consisting of five workouts over the course of five weeks. The top athletes in every region move on to the Regional competitions in the spring and then, if they qualify, move on to The CrossFit Games in July.

But for us mortals, The Open is a yearly celebration of fitness and CrossFit. It’s a time to test our fitness, gauge the progress we’ve made over the course of a year, and set new goals for the following year. It’s also just a really freakin’ good time!

Every Friday night for five weeks, the shop hosts The Open workout. Athletes come in and do the workout, log their score on the internet, and cheer on the folks they workout in class with everyday.

Last year over 150 Roots athletes signed up to do The Open and 27 athletes are already signed up.
