You’re probably as restless as we are. The first workout of the 2016 CrossFit Open will be announced this Thursday, February 25th at the LIVE Open Announcement from NorCal CrossFit in Santa Clara, California.
Read below for an overview of how each week will look for the next five weeks as we roll through the 2016 CrossFit Open!
The workout for that week will be announced on Thursday evening at 6pm (MST). Director of the CrossFit Games, Dave Castro, drops the workout to a screaming crowd via the LIVE Announcement. The LIVE Announcement is held at a different location each week and features two previous CrossFit Games athletes going head to head against one another immediately after the workout is announced. You can watch the Live Announcement here.
Later that evening, CrossFit Roots will post the heat times for Friday Night Lights via MBO. Please remember to sign-up for a Friday Night Lights heat.
We will offer two options to do The Open workout for that week. Option 1 is to do the workout in a group WOD class from 5:30am to 1:30pm. We will program The Open workout for every Friday for the five weeks. Option 2 is to come in the evening to the ever popular and super fun Friday Night Lights! The Friday Night Lights series features organized heats of the workouts that athletes can sign-up for. In addition we have sponsors, prizes for athletes, a raffle, food, and drink – and tons of screaming fans ready to cheer you on to greatness!
If you missed your chance to do the workout on Friday, or you’re crazy and want to do it again, you have a second chance on Mondays. Come to either the 6:30am or 11:30pm classes and we will run organized heats of the workouts at that time.
Monday Score Submission
On Monday evenings at 5pm P.T. ALL score submissions are due. Please make it a habit to enter your score the day you complete the workout.
