Friday Night Lights | 2019 CrossFit Open
The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is the largest fitness competition on Earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. Athletes just like you, from all around the world, show up to their box and push themselves further than they ever thought possible over a five-week period. Complete the workouts at a CrossFit affiliate with a judge, or film your effort from anywhere in the world and submit a link as proof. People of all ages and ability levels can participate, RX’d or Scaled. At the end of five weeks, the fittest move on to the next stages of competition: the Regionals and the Online Qualifier.
Heat sizes and durations will vary each week depending on the WOD. The only thing that is certain is that the first heat will always kick off at 5:00. If you know you can never make it to the 5:00 heat please let Shannon know so that she can schedule you for a later heat. If you know you can never stay for a later heat then notify Shannon so she can schedule you first. Athletes are expected to judge each other either before or after their own heat so please allow extra time for that.
5:30 AM and 9:30 AM classes are still on and athletes will perform the Open workouts during those classes, whether officially signed up or not.
If you are officially signed up for the Open, you MUST have your score entered into your account with games.crossfit.com by 8:00 PM Monday each week for it to be validated. There are absolutely no exceptions (this is per CrossFit!) and scores cannot be entered late.
Don’t worry if you aren’t signed up – just come prepared as usual to workout, but expect the energy level to be high and expect to cheer on your fellow athletes! This time of year is a blast as the whole CrossFit community rallies in their respective gyms to tackle the Open and push one another to challenge their limits.
If you are unable to attend a morning class or evening heat on Friday, just come to Open Gym on Sunday at 8:30 AM to make up the WOD.
