WHY YOU SHOULD SIGN UP

The Open is unique because CrossFit is the only sport where non-professionals will do the exact same workout as the professionals.

You will regret it if you don’t! Once it starts and you see the intensity level that people bring you will be hooked and left feeling excited for the next workout.

It’s FUN. There is nothing quite like the energy in the gym during the Open workouts. Everyone cheers each other on and there is always talk of strategy in tackling the next workout.

Why not? Be open to exploring the best you have to offer right now, in this moment. More often than not, you’ll surprise yourself. We promise.
