What is all of this talk about the CrossFit Open? It is one WOD a week for five weeks announced by CrossFit HQ starting February 28, 2014. If you are a current member and have signed up for the OPEN or became a judge for the OPEN, please notify us at JeffersonCityCrossFit@gmail.com today! We want to be able to accommodate those that have signed up for the challenge and will be submitting their scores to the CrossFit Games website. That is correct, if you sign up, you will be able to view where you stand at games.crossfit.com, up next to other members at Missouri, National and Worldwide Affiliates.
The workouts are announced on Thursdays, starting February 28th. We will be doing the OPEN Wods on Fridays during our regular schedule and at Open Gym at 10am on Saturdays. If you have signed up for the open and are from out of town and want to participate please call us and set up a time in one of our classes so that we know you are coming and can plan accordingly. Programming in the gym week to week will not work around these wods. We will be doing these workouts so our entire community can participate and have a feeling of what the OPEN is about. What this means, is that you may need to plan and adjust your training and rest days accordingly.
You may think, well I am not ready to do the CrossFit OPEN workouts. And we beg to differ. Jefferson City CrossFit is going to focus on the closeness of our community and we are going “to battle together”. We will stand side by side, barbell by barbell, and do what we do each day we WOD together. Push each other and encourage. So, “do or do not, there is no try.”
Remember the 2014 CrossFit Open and JCCF went to battle together……..See you at the box!
