The 2015 CrossFit Open is nearly upon us!
We have spoken with our athletes and, after getting some valuable feedback, we've decided to adjust our plan slightly...
We will now be doing the CrossFit Open workouts in every class on Mondays (starting on Monday 2 March). Our Sunday sessions will serve as a recovery/skills day, with the programming focused on the movements that will be in each Open workout.
The CrossFit Open is a great experience – the workouts are a blast to do and a great learning experience, you'll give yourself a benchmark of fitness that you can re-test in next year's Open to see how much you've improved, and you get to throw down with all your training buddies! What's not to love?! I want all of our athletes (no matter how long you have been training) to get involved!
