SATURDAY February 21, 2015

CrossFit Open 2015

Changes for 2015

For those of you that participated in the open last year, this year will be somewhat the same, but with a few changes. First off, kickoff this year will be on Saturday, February 28th at 9am. Second, last year there was no option to scale the workouts if you wanted to be an official participant in the Open. We allowed people to come in and scale the workout, but they were not actually part of the worldwide open. This year there is a scaled division in the Open, so anyone that wants to be part of the competition is able to do so. Even if you choose not to register for the open, we still want you to come in and work out with us, so no reason to miss your Saturday WOD! As with last year, workouts will be released on Thursday, with scores due by 5pm on Monday. This means that if you miss Saturday’s workout, you have another chance to make it up, as long as you get your score in by 5pm. As for logging scores, we will have free wifi at the gym, and will have a computer available to log scores onto the games website as soon as you are done with the workout!

First Impressions

Okay, I can hear it now… “I can’t even do a lot of workouts Rx’d! How am I supposed to compete???”. For some reason, we see the videos on crossfit.com or on other websites. We see certain people in our own gym, as well as other gyms in the area, and we think that the only people to participate in CrossFit competitions are inhuman beasts that breath fire and sweat steel. We have seen the CrossFit Games on ESPN. Maybe we have even been to a local CrossFit competition. All too often we get caught up in the idea that in order to participate in these events, you must have already achieved an elite level of fitness. This is not the case!

The Truth

How many of you would look at a local 5k race and tell yourself, “I don’t stand a chance against those guys out there running a 16 minute 5k. I may as well just stay home!”. Hopefully none of you! For some reason, we have gotten past the “must win” mentality, and we enter events like a local 5k or mud run just for the fun of the event. We go for the atmosphere, we go for the camaraderie, we go to be with our friends, whatever our reasons may be, we go because its fun! Why then, should we get overwhelmed by the prospect of a CrossFit event? All of the same positive aspects are present, along with the added benefit that you already do this stuff daily anyways! We should be going to CrossFit events because it is fun! Plus, with the added option of registering in the scaled division of the Open this year, the events are even more appropriate for all ability levels!

 

Open PicsThe Open

Starting February 26, 2015  the CrossFit Games Open is a world-wide CrossFit Competition(or event, if that makes you more comfortable) that is ran through the CrossFit Games website. “The Open” as it has come to be called, is actually 5 events over 5 weeks. Every Thursday, CrossFit HQ will announce the Open workout for that week. You will have until Monday at 5pm to submit your score on the Open website. You will be able to track your own progress over the 5 weeks as well as that of anyone else that is actively participating in the Open. You can compare scores and stats with anyone in the world! While it is true that CrossFit uses The Open to find the fittest athletes in the world and invite them to regional competitions, that does not mean that only the fittest should participate. Just like any other sporting event that is open to the public, everyone is welcome. Come for the workout, come for the camaraderie, come for the fun! Here at CrossFit ParaBellum, we will be hosting the Open workouts every Saturday at 9am. These workouts will be judged and have their scores verified, just like in any other competition. What you must understand is, while we do take this very seriously, and we will be very strict on movement standards, we encourage anyone and everyone to participate no matter your ability level. There is a scaled division this year, and we will do whatever is necessary to accommodate all ability levels.

Bring your family and friends, it will be a great time!
