CrossFit Games Beta Site is Up!

34 days and counting until the kick-off to the 2012 CrossFit Open!  What exactly is the CrossFit Open?  It’s the first stepping stone to the CrossFit Games.

Check out the new site here.

Learn about the annual Games Season here. We highly recommend you do it!  It’s a blast and a great example of the worldwide reach of the CrossFit community.  We will be doing the CrossFit Open workouts each week as part of the regular WOD classes – so why not throw your results up online!

Actually – let’s be honest – we NEED you to do it! The CrossFit Open is also the stepping stone to qualify a TEAM for the regional competition.  But here’s the catch – ANYONE for ANY WORKOUT can contribute points to the team effort.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking – how could I help out?  Can you row?  What if one of the workouts is 1,000m row for time?  We have some SICK ergers at the shop.  We need your help.  What if it’s max deadlifts in 5 minutes?…ahem, Ryan.  What if it’s max distance handstand walk?  We need YOUR score.

So please, please consider registering for the Open.  We’ll continue to harass everyone at the shop over the next few weeks!

    Big ups to Arjun and the 12:30 crowd. Awesome to watch months of technique work result in beautiful, full-depth 5×5 back squats. Also loved watching longtime Roots mentoring newbies. Well done!
