The 2012 CrossFit Games Open

The Open is the first level of competition for CrossFit athletes looking to qualify for the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games. For an in-depth explanation of the CrossFit Games season, read here.  The Open consists of 5 workouts that will take place over 5 consecutive weeks, from Feb 22 to March 25. Every Wednesday a new WOD will be announced, and athletes will have until that Sunday to complete the WOD and post their scores to the web. The Open is the most inclusive competition in the world – it is open to everyone/anyone who wants to register.

At ICA, we will host the Open WODs on Thursday nights. This will replace our Make Up Session for 5 weeks, from Feb 22 through March 22. You can join us on Thursday nights to work out even if you don’t formally register… but we encourage everyone to register! The cost is minimal (I think it was $10 last year), and we guarantee you’ll have fun, learn a lot about yourself, and take your intensity to a whole new level. If an athlete who registered for The Open can not make it to the Thursday night WOD, we will offer a chance to make it up on Saturday mornings.

Please see Nikki or John if you have any questions!

    Out of curiosity – who is going to register for The Open?!? I know John, Sara, Kevin, Karen, and Mark are all in with me. How about some of our newer CrossFitters? Are you thinking about it? I’d love every one of our members to sign up and help represent Iron Cross Athletics / CrossFit Phoenixville… Post to comments if you’re in!

    I wasn’t planning on it, only cause I don’t really know what’s involved. I’m probably up for it.

    i hope to see a lot of our newer crossfitters join the team. in all seriousness, the Open was one of the most fantastic crossfit events i participated in last year (and i was still kind of new!) and i gained a LOT of new skills that i had been working on for months prior, and more importantly, i learned a lot about myself and how far i could push.

    if you want more info about what the Open is, or what to expect, ask! and then be prepared to be bowled over by excitement when i explain it to you. 🙂
