It’s almost that time of the year again, where we put our fitness to the test with the CrossFit Open. We are doing it big again this year with the 5th Annual Crux Intramural Open.
If you are new, I am sure you are wondering what does an Intramural Open mean? It ultimately means FUN! but to explain further we run the 5 CrossFit Open workouts as an in house competition along with the whole CrossFit world. Each person who signs up to the Crux Intramural Open will be placed on a Crux team. Each team will have a captain and there will be points awarded each week. The main emphasis of points will be on participation and fun. So if you’re worried about “not being ready” or "new to the gym" don’t be! All that’s required is that you show up, do a workout once a week (scheduled on Friday in regular class), and cheer on your teammates! Oh yeah and eat, drink and hang out with all the cool kids, just like back in high school. And don’t worry if you are not around every Friday, we will be sure to make it work for everyone.
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!
The CrossFit Open Runs February 22-March 26th.
