If you have been in the gym lately, I am sure you have noticed the bulletin boards and signs throughout the facility all promoting the CrossFit Open to the Main Class members. Some of you may be wondering what the CrossFit Open is. The Open is the first stage of the CrossFit Games season and the largest community event of the year. Every year, hundreds of thousands of athletes come together to compete in the worldwide, online competition. A competition designed to seek out the Fittest on Earth.
Workouts are released on Thursdays at 5 p.m. PT, and athletes have four days to complete the workout for the week and submit their score online.
At the end of five weeks, the fittest move on to the next 2 stages of competition: the Regionals and the final stage, The CrossFit Games.
CrossFit is considered infinitely scalable and although our class is technically not a CrossFit class, we do follow many of the principles of CrossFit. So in the spirit of the first workout of the 2018 CrossFit Open, we will be completely our own scaled version of 18.1 which is the first workout that was released this past week.
