Who's got two thumbs and is pumped to register for the 2017 CrossFit Games Open?!?!

Who’s got two thumbs and is pumped to register for the 2017 CrossFit Games Open?!?!

 

Registration for the 2017 CrossFit Games starts today!!!

Cool story Courtney but I’m kind of new to CrossFit and I have no clue what you are talking about. 

Every year CrossFit crowns one man, one woman, and one team the fittest in the world. This crowning happens after a week long competition that takes place over the summer. But one cannot simply just show up to the CrossFit Games, one must first win the opportunity to go. And that all starts with the CrossFit Games Open. The Open is a weekly competition lasting 5 weeks. Every Thursday starting February 23rd a workout will be announced. Anyone in the world can sign up to participate in the Open, they will have 5 days to do the workout and submit their score. At the end of the 5 weeks, the top men, women, and teams in each region will earn their spot at the CrossFit Games Regionals. Regionals takes place in May, and it’s at this weekend long competition where the top 5 men, women, and teams can earn a trip to the Games. 

Woh. . . that’s a lot of information. I’m still not sure I understand. 

Verve loves to participate in the Open and we love to get as many of it’s members involved in the Open too. It’s as simple as going to the Game’s site and registering, total cost is $20. And now you have the opportunity to compete against hundreds of thousands of people across the world in weekly CrossFit workouts. The best part about the Open? Every workout has a scaled version and there are various divisions based on age, all of which make the Open possible for anyone and everyone to compete in. But there’s more. . . 

This year Verve would like to announce that we will be attacking the Open a little different. Verve would like to introduce you folks to our first ever Open Team Cup. The Open will become a big in house competition. Verve will be made in to 4 teams, able to earn points based on how many people do the workout, top RX and scaled finishers in each workout, passing the judge’s course, and more. The winning team at the end of the Open will get a Verve sponsored social event to celebrate at. So for those of you on the fence about whether or not to sign up for the Open, now’s the time to hop over to the side that gets you registered. It’s no longer about where you place in the world, now it’s about how much smack talk you can back up when you get to go head to head with your WOD buddy.

There is only one prerequisite to participate in this fun filled competition. . . you have to register for the Open. We are super excited to do this. We want you to be as excited. The Open is meant to be such a fun time of the year but this will surely guarantee that for us. So get pumped and get registered.

Wait!! What team are you going to be on?!?! Don’t you worry about that right now. . . that party has yet to start. Over the next few weeks we will continue to give you updates as to how we will roll out the Open Team Cup, so stay tuned.
