We will be offering the Open WODs on Thursday’s and Sunday’s over the next 5 weeks.
If you would like to ‘compete’ that is, perform the workouts to the standards while having a judge count your reps which you may then post on the world wide leaderboard, register at games.crossfit.com.
It has this really fun feature where you can compare yourself to any other competitor!
Some of you may be wondering, “What is the CrossFit Open?”
The “Open” is many things. It is an annual event hosted by Reebok CrossFit as a way to test ones fitness. It also serves as the preliminary round to find the Fittest on Earth™.
Over the following 5 weeks, March 6th thru April 3rd, a workout will be announced on games.crossfit.com LIVE from an affiliate. The workout will include standards that are to be meet. Last year, Games WOD 12.1 was 10 Minute AMRAP Burpees to a target 6″ above reach. While many have speculated, nobody knows what will 13.1 will hold.
The Open is said to be the most inclusive competition in the world. Anyone that has done CrossFit should be able to post a score. At the end of the 5 weeks. All the reps and rankings are evaluated and the top 48 men and women from each region are invited to compete at Sectionals. Sectionals will take place at different times for different regions, but the workouts they do will be the same. The top three finishers from each Region will then be invited to compete at the 2013 Reebok CrossFit games to be held at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif the weekend of July 26-28. The winner of this event is then crowned the Fittest on Earth™.
