CrossFit Open 2013!

Since 2011, the CrossFit Open has been the first step in qualifying to compete in the annual CrossFit Games. At this point in the evolving sport of CrossFit, to make it all the way to the Games is a full-time training commitment, but the CrossFit Open is a great way to see how you stack up against other CrossFitters around the world, whether you've just started or have been at this for a while.

While the priority of CrossFit Tysons Corner is real-life, functional fitness, if you're curious about completing this year's open workouts, we'll be organizing and submitting workout results for anyone interested. Similar to the team competition we did in November, it's a fun way to challenge yourself and encourage your fellow gym members.

If you'd like to learn a bit more about the Open and what the workouts involve, please sign up here before Feb. 3. 

Some info:
  • CrossFit Open registration begins January 30
  • CrossFit Open consists of 5 workouts, completed 1 per week from March 6 - April 7
  • Leading up to the open, we may do a few competition-style WODs (outside of normal programming) to get used to the rules and scoring
  • If you have no interest in trying your hand at the Open, regular gym programming will continue as normal. We are only organizing so that those interested can submit their scores easily. There will be a few announcements on the blog for those interested in cheering on their gym mates, but gym life will go on as usual otherwise.
Good luck reaching all of those 2013 goals!
