2015 CrossFit Games Open

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 10.50.57 AM It’s that time of year again. The CrossFit Games Open is upon us with plenty of cool new changes in store. There’s really no way to fully explain the experience you get from competing in the Open. So you will have to take everyone’s word for it. It is awesome. Here is everything you need to know about signing up and why you should!

New to the gym and the CrossFit Games? The Open is an online qualifier for the Regional Events before the World Championship Event in California. For five weeks a new workout will be announced each thursday. Each week you will get to see how you stack up against hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. It is an amazing experience and something everyone should try!

When is it? The first workout will be announced Thursday, February 26th and will run until March 30th.

This doesn’t seem like something I am ready for. You are and you will be so happy you did this. Ask any of our members that have participated in years past. Our community is pretty special, and when the Open comes around, there seems to be a change in the atmosphere around the gym. Everyone starts working harder, motivating more, and banding together at each weekly workout to cheer and support those competing. You have to see it to truly appreciate these events.

Sweet! Where do I get started? Head to games.crossfit.com and create an account. If you have one from previous years make sure to reuse that account. Once you are logged in you can sign up for the Open. On your profile page you will see a location to select your gym. Filter down by typing in CrossFit Deep or CrossFit Deep Oak Cliff and click to join! We can’t wait to have the most sign ups ever this year.

Ok, I am in, what can I expect? Like last year you will be able to do the workouts in classes on Friday and during open gyms on Friday and Sunday. In addition, we will have friday night events at different Host Gyms each week. This is a great opportunity for all of the Dallas CrossFit Community to come together and support each other. It is pretty remarkable to see just how big CrossFit has become in Dallas.

What’s new? There is now a scaled division! This means for those of you that couldn’t do unbanded pullups, or use certain weights / box heights / etc, you can now sign up in the scaled division. This also opens the door for even more options for the RX division. Prepare for a lot of new workouts that really test all aspects of fitness.

Stay tuned for more details on locations for the workouts!
