February 25th – April 2nd
The CrossFit Games Open:
In case you haven’t heard, The CrossFit Games Open is a worldwide online competition that happens every winter and is the first stage in finding the Fittest on Earth each year. The Open is open to everyone and is a great opportunity to test your fitness, not only against yourself, but against your peers and strangers the world over. Every week for 5 weeks, CrossFit HQ will release a workout that has to be completed and scores submitted by Monday night. Both Rx and Scaled versions of each workout will be released. This is open to everyone in the gym aged 14 and older; all skill levels!
To make things more fun this year, WCCF competing head to head in an Intramural Open! Points will be awarded each week for participation by each team member, highest scores, and spirit awards. There will also be a sixth event (not a regular WOD) TBA at a later date! Grand prize will be awarded to the top team!
Athletes will be able to complete each Open workout on Fridays during any class, but each Friday night we will be having Friday Night Lights at 5:30pm, throwing down the Open workout in multiple heats, hanging out and maybe having a few adult beverages. The first heat at 5:30pm will be a showdown of our Performance Athletes!
If you cannot make a class on Friday, we will have “make ups” on Sundays at 9am (except Week 5 because of Easter Sunday), and for anyone crazy enough to repeat a workout hoping to get a better score.
