The OPEN is Coming!
The 2015 CrossFit Open is on it’s way! What is the Open?! The CrossFit Open is an annual global competition and qualifier for the CrossFit Games. Each year CrossFit HQ releases a series of WODs that must be completed at registered affiliates (that’s us) who follow particular guidelines and standards so that their score may then be submitted to the CrossFit Games site. At the end of the series all the athletes are ranked by their score and the top athletes from each region are then invited to Regionals. In essence it’s the 1st of 2 steps an athlete or team must take to compete in the Games.
But here is the cool part and what sets CrossFit apart from all other sports. EVERYONE can participate! In fact, over 200,000 people competed last year. 141 of those athletes were from Roots, making us the largest participating affiliate in the South West, and we qualified a team to compete at Regionals.
Each year things are done a little bit differently, but don’t worry because we have you covered, just keep your eye on the blog for details of how it will go down at Roots and why you should all participate. There is even a scaled division this year!
Registration begins January 15th.
