The 2015 CrossFit Open is coming up!! For our newer members who might be unfamiliar with the Open: Each year CrossFit holds a 5-week open competition that allows ANYONE interested to register and compete for a spot in the regional competitions. Winners of the regional competitions are then sent to California in July to participate in the CrossFit games.
Each Thursday night, from the end of February to the end of March, CrossFit releases an “Open WOD” with standards for performance. Participants have until the following Monday to complete the workout in front of a certified judge and submit their score online.
This year, CrossFit York will run the Open workout as our FRIDAY WOD. We will provide multiple judges/coaches for each session to accommodate our registered participants. We encourage all our athletes to participate in the Open for the experience of having a judged workout and for the added friendly in-box competition. All competitors will also have the benefit of seeing how they stack up by state, by region, and against other local boxes.
If you are interested in registering but would like more information, ask any CFY coach for more information, or you can find more information on the official CrossFit Games site as well.
Currently, the following CFY athletes are registered for the OPEN: Ken Sweigart, Rusty Mirasol, Madeline Dahlke, Alyssa Elliot, Andrew Wagner, Joe Fullam, Melony Grove, Steve Kearns, Ernie Seigle, Larry Schlaline, Jason Sneeringer, Michal Tyson, and Adam Fiero.
Additionally, all your coaches and the coaching mentorees in our mentorship program are busy getting their judges’ certification so they are prepared to encourage you to complete every rep properly… because if you don’t… NO REP!
