Register for the inaugural CrossFit/USAW Open on October 1-3, 2010! This is the first event of its kind: a sanctioned USAW meet combined with a third CrossFit event.Competitors are ranked based on their total kgs in the snatch and clean and jerk plus total reps in the CrossFit Triplet.

Standard international rules apply to the snatch and clean and jerk, which will be judged by USAW officials. The Triplet will be:

As many rounds and reps as possible in ten minutes of:
6 Squat cleans (55/30kg)
12 Pull-ups
24 Double-unders

Compete against some of CrossFit's best (or just come watch them compete)! Chris Spealler, Rob Orlando, Kristan Clever, Miranda Oldroyd, Lindsey Smith, Russell Berger, Matt Chan, and James Hobart are all scheduled to compete. Josh Everett and Dave Lipson will compete not just in the Open, but will do a demo Isabel race, since they both have reported sub-1min Isabels.

There will also be tours of the US Olympic Training Center, chances to watch the US Weightlifting team train, and a reception with Olympians and Olympic coaches.


  1. Ward :

    Verve Friends,
    Thank you for all of your support and encouragement over the last year…I can’t say enough about the difference all of you have made in my life….
    I’m moving to beautiful Vail, CO to pursue an awesome career opportunity. Come visit. I’ll be at high altitude crossfit gasping for air.

  2. Slaughter :

    Best of luck Ward!
    I saw grace and my heart rate went up to about 160…. This one is going to be good….

  3. Donna :

    We will miss you at 6 am, Miss Lisa!

  4. Donna :

    Obesity Rates Soar:
    Only Colorado and Washington, D.C., had obesity rates under 20 percent. Researchers are not sure why. Dr. William Dietz, director of the nutrition, physical activity and obesity division, said that Colorado had spent money from a state lottery on biking and walking trails and that many people were using them. The state seems to have “a culture of physical activity,” he said.

  5. Luke :

    🙁 Peace out Ward, keep it real.

  6. CC :

    Anyone that is interested in the USAW/Crossfit Event, Matt and I are “official” USAW coach. This is good for you, because then you don’t need to be members. Use Matt or my #, it doesn’t matter which, but I am prettier.
