Have you heard of the CrossFit Open?
The CrossFit Open is the first of three stages towards qualifying for the CrossFit Games, and begins on February 25th. Athletes of any level can sign-up to participate in the CrossFit Open and test their fitness against hundreds of thousands worldwide. At the end of the Open the top athletes from each region move on to regionals. Although the Open is a screen to ultimately find the fittest athletes on earth, it is also a special chance for the entire CrossFit community to come together both internationally and in the gym.
The CrossFit Open is for EVERYONE. There are scaled and Rx versions of the workouts so that everyone can participate. For us, the Open is not about your score, it is about community. Last year we had almost 80 athletes register and compete in the Open with Queen Street, no one went on to regionals.
Our goal this year is to get as many athletes to register as possible. Registration costs $20 and once you sign-up you can select CrossFit Queen Street as your affiliate. Every Friday night during the Open we will be hosting our version of Friday Night Lights where everyone will have a chance to compete together. We will be posting more on this later and reminding you all during the sessions.
After the Open is over we will be hosting a major gym social to celebrate.
