The CrossFit Open is rapidly approaching. Have you signed up? If not, why not? The Open is for everyone, in the past we've scaled the workouts just like we would any other workout. This year, things are different. For the first time ever, the CrossFit Open will have a scaled division. The Open isn't just for Games athlete hopefuls. It's for the CrossFit community in it's entirety. We're going to be doing some fun stuff this year at 818 for the Open so it's definitely not something you're going to want to miss. If you've ever considered doing the Open, but shied away for whatever reason, now is your time. Sign up. I promise you won't regret it.
In case you need a little bit more encouragement, the CrossFit Games website posted this great article the other day about a young man who will be participating in his first CrossFit Open this year. Check it out here. Like he says, "it's not just the Fronings of the world that can do this...it's everyday people."
