’twas the night before the open….
CrossFitters around the world waited with baited breath.
Coaches in timezones far away slept with one eye open, waiting to see if ‘he has been’ (online … to announce 18.1), with an array of tools at the ready; tape measure, duct tape, chalk, cones, the neighbours’ dumbbells ….
For those of you who are new to CrossFit and have no idea what the open is, or the madness that is about ensue over the next 5 weeks in the gym, you can read a blog post that we published last year (below) which summarises what it’s all about;
In short, the open is opportunity to test yourself, regardless of how long you have been doing CrossFit. It is sure to push you mentally and physically beyond what you thought was capable. It also provides an opportunity for comparisons with your own results (past, present and future open rankings) and others in your gym and around the world, including your favourite CrossFit Games superstars.
At CrossFit Leyland we will be dedicating ALL classes on Friday (6am, 7am, 9:30am, 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm) and between 10am – 12 noon on Saturday to complete the open workouts during the 5 weeks.
