The Open….the worlds biggest and most widely participated in sporting event takes place beginning in late February and runs through a five week period.  In 2017, over 310,000 athletes of all ages, sizes, and abilities took part. Much like our CFP Houseleague, but done on a global basis  with WODS administered by HQ, you can see how you fair against CrossFitters worldwide, as well as in your region, and your own box,in your age and gender categories, and at RX and Scaled levels.

So why am I telling you this?  Because its not that far away. 16 weeks! Bear in mind that most of us come 4 or 5 times a week.  There are Xmas Holiday’s, and vacations, etc so for most of us that amounts to about 60 training sessions between NOW and THEN!

You might say  “I’m not interested in that!”  But, from experience of having being involved for the past 6 years I can tell you this…”YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS OUT!”

Here’s some things we know for sure about The Open…Double Unders, Thrusters, Cleans, and Deads will all be part of it. Cheering, jeering, sweating, and crying all figure in to it too…but most of all its F.U.N.F.U.N.F.U.N!


So make a list…what are your goals? What skills do you need to work on the most in order to be the best that you can be! Write them down! Make a plan! Execute your plan! Plan for success!
