The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition.
Our goals at Cumming Strength and Fitness: to educate and inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring.
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so!
Through the Open, we’re going to have four intramural teams competing. And you’re going to be on one of them.
The Four Intramural teams don’t have names yet. But their Captains have been chosen.
Yep, we chose the FUN bunch to captain. We want you to sign up this year; are you really going to say no? I don’t think so.
Registration for the Open tournament can be done at the gym using the spreadsheet. The $40 registration fee will include your entry fee, teams shirt, last weeks Friday night party and winning teams prize.
Coaches and members will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team. We want to ensure even distribution for all of our athletes.
Once the draft has occurred (names will be drawn from a hat) we will notify the athletes of their team.
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at CS&F each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the top 3 at CS&F for each workout gets an extra point for their team. The top 3 SCALED athlete scores AND the top 3 RX athlete scores will count.
+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.
+8 Points (team) BONUS – Team Bonding: If your team gets together socially outside of the gym (ALL of you – pic posted on our FB page as proof)…you get points. This is a one time bonus. It can be done at any point during the 5 weeks.
In 2016, athletes competing in the Open will have only four days to complete each workout. The workouts are released on Thursday nights at 8pm and then we throw down all day on Friday, starting February 27th. ALL classes will be programmed for this workout. You can come morning, noon or night. Friday nights, however, will be the BIG night for teams to gather and have a fun time together. We will also have Open Gym on Sundays for those who cannot complete the workout on Friday or who want to redo the workout. The first workout will be announced Thursday February 25th.
The top team will earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!
Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff.
Register at the gym, and let’s start this party!
