Wednesday, January 31

It's Wednesday FriendsDay! Bring a friend to any class time throughout the day to try CrossFit!

Also, I know some of you have already registered for the Open and that's awesome, but our team wasn't set up. There was a delay with the judges course that we have to take and it's finally up and running and, great news, I passed!

So, the team and affiliate are now active and you can join us whenever you are ready. I did add all of you that had registered under 616 already so let me know if you don't see your name on the team page.

If you are new to CrossFit and aren't familiar with the Open it's a worldwide competition that is the first step toward the CrossFit Games. We will do one workout a week for five weeks starting February 22 and submit our scores to test our fitness against CrossFitters all over the world. You can read more about it here.

As always, we encourage people to do the Open to test where you are right now in your fitness journey. It's not about where you used to be or where you want to be, it just gives you a snapshot of where you are today.

We've also seen the Open push people to attempt and do things they didn't think possible. We've seen everything from first pullups or muscle ups to PRs on clean and jerks and snatches. 

You have all experienced this community first-hand in some way, but the Open gives us all a chance to come together at one time, and that encouragement and support we get from each other just has a way of making special things happen.

We also see people find a new gear on workouts. They even surprise themselves sometimes and break through mental barriers that may have been holding them back. 

Sure, it's technically a competition, but we approach it as a community event- for our own 616 community and the CrossFit community around the world. It's pretty cool to do the same workout that hundred of thousands of CrossFitters all over the globe are doing at the same time.

So, get signed up and join the team and let's get ready for 18.1!
