What is the CrossFit Open you ask?
The Open competition is a worldwide CrossFit competition that essentially acts as the first round of qualification to the CrossFit Games – the World Championships. The idea behind the Open is that, like CrossFit, ANYBODY can do it. Last year’s first Open workout, for example, was 7 minutes of burpees. Even your 90-year-old grandma could likely get a legitimate score on this event.
This year’s Open starts March 6th and runs for five weeks (one workout per week), but registration begins THIS WEEK on January 30th.

Who should sign up??
We all should sign up! We’ll be doing these workouts each week at CF Bishop anyway, so you might as well sign up and be a part of it. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to compete. You don’t even need to have goals of making it to the Regional competition to be involved. For most people, it’s just a chance to be a part of something and to work harder than they normally would.
So in the spirit of what is to come:
