The Open starts THIS week. Get your team together and send us your info!

The first Open WOD will be announced THIS THURSDAY 2/23 at 5pm.  Once we know the workout, we will announce which gym will be hosting the Saturday morning heats (starting at 10am).

To add to the fun, we will be competing for bragging rights (and maybe even some prizes) as intramural teams of 4 (2 male/2 female).

Each week, we’ll be recognizing the best team who goes Rx’d, the best team who goes Scaled (not Rx’d), as well as the top Masters, and we’ll be doing some recognition around some weekly Wildcard awards (could be spirit, could be biggest improvement, could be the most impressive “first” that happened–sky’s the limit for the Wildcard awards).  We’ll also be giving out some grand prizes at the end of the Open for various teams.  This is gonna be a blast!

Here’s what you need to do to participate in the Open:

1. Go to the CrossFit Games website and register for the Open.  It will be the best $20 you spend this year.  Make sure you register as part of your affiliate (your home gym, either CrossFit Oakland, CrossFit Oakland Uptown, or CrossFit EGA).

2. Once you’ve assembled a team, email us the name of your team and the names of the folks on the team.  If you don’t have a team, let us know and we will find one for you!

3. Take a deep breath and remember, this is supposed to be fun!  The PRs will happen if you let them–just focus on the process.

If you have any questions send us an email.

See you on Saturday!
