Spring strength program
By request, we are adding a second day to our strength program.

_Poor form in the gym is caused by insuf ficient yelling.” -Mark Rippetoe (1)

We will complete ‘Strength WOD A’ on Saturdays as a group at the 8:45 AM class.

'Strength WOD B’ will be completed on your own during open gym.

Since the strength program is running separate from our CrossFit program, there will be days when movements overlap. When this happens, just skip the lift until the next session.

The Spring Strength GoogleDoc spreadsheet has been updated to reflect this second workout.

Please add your numbers there after you complete the work.

Open WOD 18.1 Schedule
The CrossFit Open is upon us! 18.1 is posted on the CrossFit Games website.

Screen Shot 2018-02-23 at 12.45.16 PM

We are tackling this as a group tomorrow (Saturday).

We are running classes every 25 minutes beginning at 8:30. (8:30, 8:55, 9:20, 9:45, 10:10)

Each class’s schedule will look like this:
* Warm up - 20 minutes
* WOD - 20 minutes
* Judge - 20 minutes

We are asking that each athlete sticks around after their WOD and judges for the group following you.

With this structure, we will get you in and out in a little over an hour!

This communal judging effort is HUGE for making the Open happen each year and we really appreciate your help.


Plan to arrive at the class time you signed up for.
Improving since 2014
Maianh was kind enough to share some reflections on what the CrossFit Open means to her and how it has positively challenged her over the years.


What does the CrossFit Open mean to me?

It allows me to be the best me I can be in a measurable way. Since my first open in 2014 I have seen my progress through my results.

What do you think the Open means to the CrossFit community?

For 5 weeks the whole CrossFit community comes together to perform the same workouts with the same goal: to bring all their training together and perform to the best of their ability. Each person works just as hard, pushes through and at the end still has the energy to cheer on their remaining compadres.



How has the Open challenged you in a positive way over the years?

1. In 2017 I challenged myself to be “one and done” and I was successful. A more challenging goal than it sounds. I strive for perfection and the open brings out the best in you and it allows you to quickly assess how you did and as long as you can do it within the timeframe, you can repeat and hopefully improve your score. My challenge was to try and do my best I could the first time and be happy with what I achieved.

2. My coach challenges me. He often sets and sees goals that I don’t think I’m capable of. A wise coach in 2017 gave me a goal, to aim for the top 200 in my age group in the SW region. Yes, that’s right, I am a 35-39 masters athlete. Now he recalls saying top 250 but I’m proud to say, I brought it and placed 188th in the SW and 49th in Arizona.


Should you officially register in the Open?

Wondering whether to sign up or just do the WODs? Either is great, but signing up gives you historical data to monitor and measure your progress over the years and you get cool stats on an app and dashboards that include a Free Range Leaderboard!!

Thanks for taking the time and for all the kind words Maianh! Here's to another strong year!!
