25 Jan 2019 - The 2019 CrossFit Open: What are the Post-WOD Feels?

Marco rocking the “Rich Froning Appreciation Day” Post-WOD Feels in last' year’s Open.

If you were to ask any CrossFit athlete what Post-WOD feels are, they might tell you that it’s exhaustion or elation. It’s the adrenaline rush and the Fran cough. It’s being laid out on the floor, rolling over to fist bump your training buddy, or it’s jumping up in the air to celebrate your achievement.

However, if you ask a CrossFit 1864 athlete what Post-WOD Feels are, they’ll tell you that it’s face paint on St. Patrick’s Day, a Smoothie Bar with the best Coffee Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie you’ve ever had, a Paper Airplane Competition, Rich Froning Appreciation Day, an International Picnic, and a Cornhole Tournament.

Say what?!

For our Open Team Competition, every week during the Open, one team will be given the responsibility of organising their very own Post-WOD Feels (PWF) to share with the other teams. With the PWF, you are limited only by your imagination. It can be an extra activity at the box while the heats are going on, a post-WOD meet up somewhere in the City, or some snacks to re-fuel the hungry troops served in between heats. We want to see what your team can put together to keep the buzz of that day's Open WOD going for as long as possible!

The winner of the Best Post-WOD Feels will be decided on Wednesday 20 March, by a vote and, if your team wins the best Post-WOD Feels, you score five valuable points!

Remind me again… what is the Open Team Competition?

19 Jan 2019 - It's that time of year... the Open is Coming!

This is Coach Phil’s “Excited for the Open” Face!

Awwwwww yeahhhhhh it’s time to get psyched for the 2019 CrossFit Open!

The five weeks of the CrossFit Open is the most exciting time in the CrossFit calendar… the anticipation before the workout is announced, the camaraderie and suport from your fellow athletes, the challenge of each workout, the buzz you feel once you finish, the PBs hit, the milestones achieved and, we can’t forget to mention the Team competition we host (more on that soon!)

For a more detailed description of what the Open is, check out this video from last year:

As the video mentions, there is an Rx and a Scaled division, so whether you've been CrossFitting for over a year or just over a week, there's no reason why you can't take part!

We will be taking on the Open every Saturday from 23 February – 23 March.

Sign up for the Open here and don’t forget to list CrossFit 1864 as your affiliate!


On 2 February, all of our members registered for the Open will be divided up in to teams, led by one of the coaches and a co-captain. From 2 February, led by your coach and their co-captain, your team will come up with a team name, build up your team bants, fire shots at the other teams and also have a chance to recruit athletes to your team that have not yet registered for the Open!
