The 2017 CrossFit Open is about to get started, so I thought I would share a quick blog about the open with you from my friend Courtney:
“the CrossFit Games are the super bowl of CrossFit. Except, instead of having to be drafted on to some team the CrossFit Games are open for anyone to get into. You just register online and it costs just 20 bucks. The road to the CrossFit Games start with the CrossFit Open. It is 5 weeks long, with one workout each week. In true CrossFit fashion, the workout is not announced until the week you are to do it. There are like 500,000 people registered to compete in the open. They have from the time the workout is announced on Thursday until Monday afternoon to complete the workout and submit their results on the CrossFit Games Website (results must be verified by a Certified CrossFit Affiliate or filmed and submitted for verification). The first workout, 17.1 (no, not miles… it stands for 2017 season, 1st workout), will be announced this Thursday”
The 2017 CrossFit Open starts with the announcement of the first workout THURSDAY EVENING at 6:00PM MST. We will be doing all of the Open workouts at Boulder CrossFit EVERY FRIDAY (for the next 5 weeks) so get signed up TODAY! HERE is a quick video about the open, HERE is a more detailed explanation of what it is and click HERE to sign up. Be sure to put Boulder CrossFit as your affiliate and let the games begin!!!
