It’s that time of the year again 915’ers where we put our fitness to the test with the CrossFit Open. However this year we are doing things a little differently. We are going to be having an internal competition, an Intramural Open! I am sure you are wondering what does an Intramural Open mean? Internally we are going to be doing the Open workouts (similar to last year) however this year the twist is each person who is committed to the Intramural Open will be on a team. Each team will have a captain and there will be points awarded each week.
Note* For this in-house competition, the main emphasis of points will be on participation- not performance! So if you’re worried about “not being ready” – don’t be! All that’s required is that you show up, do work, and cheer on your teammates! As you’ll see in the rules below, only the top 3 males and females in each division (RX and Scaled) will score additional points for their team!
Our goal is to make this a fun experience for everyone, bring our community together while testing our hard work that we put in each week!
Sign up for the Intramural Open is $5 at the front desk. Just choose if you’ll be competing Scaled or Rx. This means when the Open workouts are released you will be following the Scaled or Rx. If you want to see how you stack up to others around the world, register for the Open here: games.crossfit.com Officially regerstering for the Open is recommended because your score will always be available to look back on. Plus you get 5 points extra for doing so. Cost of registering for the Open is $20 which you pay online on the CrossFit website.
