CrossFit Games Open

by Coach Dyer
The CrossFit Games Open is less than a month away. If you think you might be the kind of person who likes to have fun, sign up.

Dates: March 6 to April 7
Cost: $20
What is it?: CrossFit HQ will announce 1 workout on Wednesday March 6th and you have until Sunday evening to complete the workout in front of a judge and upload your score. This will happen for 5 consecutive weeks with a new workout each week. Your score(s) will give you a worldwide and regional ranking – so, you can finally go head-to-head against your friends who live outside of Atlanta or who train at another gym.
Where?: We’ll complete (and judge and validate your scores) all workouts here at CFM each week. If you have to travel one of these weeks, you can still do the WOD at any other participating CrossFit affiliate.

Sign up. The more of us who do this the more fun it will be for all of us.


Check out CFM’s own Matt C showing off dem CrossFit skills last weekend at a bachelor party in South Florida. (Yes, they’re calling him Rex in the video… this is apparently his middle name and college alter-ego… AND his new whiteboard name)

      Clearly, Rex likes to have a good time. I'm sure that he'll be signing up for the open. Looks like he's also provided us with a new benchmark workout as well. Odds are pretty damn good that I'll be bringing a cooler full of beers to one of open events for people to take a shot at beating his 3:50 record.

      I'll accept that challenge.
