The CrossFit Open is fast approaching! The first workout gets announced on October 10!

If you are new to CrossFit or you haven’t been following all of the changes over the last year, you may not be familiar with the Open or the new CrossFit Games season. Basically, the season of qualifying for the CrossFit Games has been rearranged so the Open will be the first event of the year. That means we are having two Opens in 2019.

In the end, none of that really matters if you aren’t really trying to make it to the Games. We use the Open here as a test of our fitness year to year. It’s a fun way to see where you are in your training and get together with the 616 and greater CrossFit community.

Registration for the 2020 Open is live now. They are bringing back the affiliate leaderboard this year so make sure you join under 616. We’re working to set up our team too, but we have to do a little more work to make that live.

Head over to the Games site to read more about the Open and the CrossFit Games. Remember, the Open is supposed to be a fun event each year to test your fitness. It’s one workout a week for five weeks and we will officially schedule that workout on Saturday mornings this time around. Don’t let it stress you out. Have fun and push yourself and hopefully learn something about yourself in the process!
