What is the Open, Exactly?
For those of you new to Crossfit or unfamiliar that Crossfit has an actual season, the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games is upon us and open for registration. From the Crossfit Games site:
The 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games season is a three-stage test of fitness, comprised of the Open, Regionals, and the world championships, the CrossFit Games.
The season kicks off with the Open, the most inclusive competition in the world. The top athletes and teams in each region from the Open will move onto Regionals. The best athletes and teams at Regionals will compete at the CrossFit Games, the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™.
Ok, so what exactly does that mean for you?
The CrossFit Games Open is a 5-week online competition from March 6th-April 7th where each athlete does a single workout per week that’s scored and submitted online. The workouts will be announced each Wednesday evening and each athlete has until Sunday evening to complete and submit their score. Not only can athletes see where they stack up against the region, but also against their friends and families across the world. At Crossfit Chicago, we will have GameDay Saturdays where the community will come together to cheer each other on during normally scheduled class times. These workouts will be part of the weekly programming, so since everyone will be doing them anyway, you may as well sign up and make them count!
After the 5 CrossFit Games Open workouts are completed, CrossFit HQ invites the top 48 men and women individual athletes and the top 30 teams per region to the 3-day CrossFit Games Regional. There are 17 regions worldwide and CrossFit Chicago resides in the North Central region (our regional date and location is May 31st-June 2nd at Navy Pier-mark your calendar). Once the final regional workouts are completed, the top men, women, and teams move on to the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games. At the final competition, the fittest man, woman, masters athlete, and team will be crowned.
We’ll have more details on how Game Day Saturdays will work in an up coming blog post, but the entire CrossFit Chicago coaching staff fully supports this event and we encourage everyone to participate. Even if you’ve been CrossFitting for a month or for 5 years, the CrossFit Games Open is a chance for you to (re)ignite that competitive spirit that’s in all of us, set new goals, and maybe even surprise yourself with your performance. I hope you can join the CrossFit Chicago members that have already registered and compete alongside us – it will be inspirational and a whole lot of fun!
