THE CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN – Anna Mattson
In case you have not noticed a theme yet, each Friday until the Open, I will either post a video or story that will encourage you to join The Open. Some of the feedback I have received when I mention joining is “I am doing the workouts anyways, why would I register“, “I am too new to CrossFit, I can’t compete“, “I am not going to make it to Regionals, why would I sign up?“. All of these excuses come up EVERY year and hopefully these Friday posts will put to bed your apprehensions.
The Leaderboard on the CrossFit Games website is customizable so you can compare yourself to whomever you would like. To make the Open more interesting, you can create a friendly bet with some friends at the gym or friends at other gyms, you can compare yourself to the elite of CrossFit from around the world, you can compare yourself to your rankings last year. THE KEY IS: You have to sign up to get that data.
As a gym, we get no benefits or “kick-backs” for the number of members that sign up, but when we see a Friday when the members are hanging around after class to cheer each other on, comparing scores and strategies, watch a team member get their first double under, muscle up, or handstand push-up, nothing compares. When you are signed up and have a vested interest in your performance and others’ performances, it makes it that much more fun!
If you haven’t signed up yet, HERE is the link. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask a coach. ALSO, if you have registered in the past and felt the difficulty of finding a certified judge, we encourage you to take the JUDGES COURSE as well to help ease the burden and make the classes run more smoothly.
