Shale getting ready to be our first athlete to throw down on 14.1! Let the fun begin.


Alright boys and girls, the 2014 CrossFit season is upon us.  I’m hoping you have all signed up for the Open as we’ve been inundating you with posts and gentle prodding during workouts to do so.  You don’t have to love competing or have interest in trying to make it to Regionals, but I’m telling you the Open is such a fun experience.  If this is your first Open you’ll soon see what I’m writing about when you experience your first Open workout in class.  

The energy is through the roof as your fellow Verve members push you to perform the best you can.  You want to know my favorite part about the Open workouts?  You don’t have to count.  Sounds like a simple thing to do, but I prefer to just workout and not really worry about what rep I’m on.  You’ll have a judge and that judge will count for you so all you have to do it make sure you’re doing the movements correctly and then move your butt!

We have a new 7 PM WOD tonight and for the next 5 Fridays so be sure and check MBO.   We’re looking to make the Friday classes all very fun and enjoyable so regardless when you come in you’ll witness an amazing vibe in the gym.  

The Open is a great way to see how far you’ve come over the past year.  If this is your first experience with The Open you’ll get to see what all the hype is we’ve been talking about.  It’s also a great way to get introduced to competing and in the confines of your friendly gym with all your friends there to cheer you on.   

If you can’t make the WOD’s on Friday, be sure to get in during and Open gym hour and complete the workout and submit your score by 5 PM on the Monday after the workout is announced.  Make sure you submit your score and we at the gym will validate it for you.   It would be best if you could schedule your Open gym time with a judge so we can best cater to everyone.  The Open workouts will be announced live on Thursday evening at 6 PM local time and we will have the announcement and workout streaming at the gym.  You may see a few people doing the workouts on Thursday evening during Open gym too, so if you want to see what the workout looks like before taking it on yourself, be sure to be around at 8 PM on Thursdays for the next 5 weeks.  

As always, we are here to help you so please ask the trainers any questions you may have. Good luck today and most importantly be sure to have fun over the course of the next 5 weeks!
