The next 6 weeks of the CrossFit Open will go down in history as the best 6 weeks you’ve had at Bell and will establish, for many, a reason to come back for years to come. Yes, the CrossFit Games will be releasing a workout every Thursday for us to tackle but the open and the competition will be more than just 1 workout a week. This year marks some noticeable changes… 45% of our competitors are now Masters athletes over the age of 35. This year is also our most participated OPEN ever, with 111 athletes and counting.
Team captains have shifted, and Team Grey has a powerhouse duo to lead the charge into 2019. Coach Tommy is poised to defend Team Black’s reigning title with a new Co-Captain Lisa R taking the helm. Can the teacher duo develop the winning formula for a repeat win in 2019, or will Team Grey’s fresh faces improvise the perfect game plan for their very first title?
Points will be given out for the team with the must athletes who are able to meet the participation criteria for each week. The team with the most athletes in attendance, the most athletes trash talking on facebook, the team with the biggest presence.
Points will be given out for each podium spot acquired by a team in each of the divisions:
Rx Men (all ages)
Rx Women (all ages)
Scale Men (all ages)
Scale Women (all ages)
Masters 35+ Men Rx (all ages)
Master 35+Women Rx (all ages)
Masters 35+ Men SCALE (all ages)
Master 35+Women SCALE (all ages)
Points will be given out for the team that exemplifies “esprit de Open”. The funniest costumes, the loudest cheering, the coolest signs. The key here is fun and community.
Each week we will assign a fitness challenge for each team. All team members can participate towards the fitness challenge to help claim the 5 points per week.
