I wanted to give you all a heads-up on a really fun online competition that’s now open for registration. It’s called the CrossFit Team Series. Last year, we had one team from Emeryville and one team from Uptown put their toes in the water and do this competition. The unanimous consensus was that doing the Team Series was a ton of fun!
It’s a lot like the Open, where workouts are posted and you have a certain time frame to do them, but this time the competition is a team one, with two men and two women. Also like the Open, the workouts are very approachable and will challenge you regardless of your fitness level. There are Rx’d and Scaled workout options. And if you do one workout Scaled, it doesn’t mean you have to do all of them Scaled (you can mix and match). There’s really no downside and this will satisfy you no matter what your fitness-related goals are. If you’re just doing this for fun, this is gonna be right up your alley. If you wanna see how you stack up against the hard-chargers out there, this is going to be a great test, too.
The Team Series takes place over two week-long periods, which gives you plenty of flexibility for you to get your workouts done. The workout-completion window runs on a Tue-Mon time frame. The first set of workouts (we don’t yet know how many will be released) is released on Tuesday September 8th and must be completed no later than Monday September 14th. The second set of workouts is released on Tuesday October 6th and must be completed no later than Monday October 12th. You can do the workouts at any time, and you can do them as many times as you want.
I’m already registered on a team that’s doing this just for fun (aptly named CFO Tier 2 Athletes). It would be great if we could have some company! If we get enough teams, we could even do some fun weekend get-togethers and run each other through the workouts.
The cost to register is $80, or $20 per person. To register, go here: CrossFit Team Series
