The CrossFit Open is when CrossFit Headquarters release a Workout of the Day (WOD) for each week for five consecutive weeks. Each person who signs up is given the option to do the WOD as RX or Scaled. (To be eligible for Regionals and Games, one must do the WOD as RX.) Each workout must to be judged and completed within a certain timeframe. Workouts will be released on Thursday at 5pm PT. The athlete must submit their score before closing on Monday at 5pm PT.
You don’t have to go to a special location to do these WODs. Our box will be doing the WODs in house. Generally at this time, the mass majority of CrossFit boxes will be participating in the CrossFit Open as well.
The CrossFit Open serves two purposes. First, it brings our local community to come together to compete with the rest of the world. Registration for the Open is $20 per person. Each athlete is able to log their score onto CrossFit Games website and compare themselves to anyone else locally, nationally, worldwide and even themselves. The athletes can compare their own personal results from other prior years in the CrossFit Open.
Second, it is the first stage for athletes to compete to qualify for the CrossFit Regionals and CrossFit Online Qualifier, then finally the CrossFit Games.
To register, on January 11th, we will update this page with a direct link to the registration page. As you register, our members click on Big Barn CrossFit for box affiliation. If you have additional questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask any of the coaches for more information.
