The Reebok CrossFit Games Open

The 2012 CrossFit Games season is upon us. Registration for the 2012 CrossFit Open is now up and running. The Open is the first step in getting to the Reebok CrossFit Games at the Home Depot Center in L.A. where the fittest men and women on the planet will battle it out at almost any test of fitness imaginable to prove that they are on top of the fitness world and walk away with a cash prize of at least $250,000. Anyone can compete in the Open, hence the name! Last year over 26,000 people worldwide did. The workouts for the Open will be announced here once a week for 5 weeks in a row on Wednesdays at 5 PM, starting February 22nd. Competitors will have until the following Sunday at 5 PM. to complete the workout under the scrutiny of a judge and submit their score. The workouts must be completed at a local Affiliate and that Affiliate will provide a judge and will validate the score after it has been submitted. The workouts may also be done and submitted via video to validate the score. Each workout will be explained in detail on the announcement page (linked above). Every athlete competing must watch all explanation videos and read all instructions prior to completing the WOD so that there is no confusion as to the requirements of the rules and standards. At CrossFit Snohomish we will be doing the workouts from the Open each Saturday. Everyone may come to class just like normal to do the workout. Those wishing to be judged for the Open will have the opportunity to do so at that time. Every CFS athlete competing in the open must make EVERY effort to do the WOD at the Saturday class each week. If for some reason you are traveling your next best option will be to find an affiliate near where you are traveling to and get your score validated there. If this cannot be done you may email all of the CFS coaches to attempt to set up an appointment to do the WOD at another time. The cost for this will be $20 to the coach for their time and effort! Let the Games begin!

  1. 23:41 – great Sat class…Run fest! Jimmy was a gazelle and Brad got me in round 7 and never looked back! Love it. Seething to push me harder next time! Happy Saturday!☀☀☀

  2. 21:53 Rx’d! Great to have a nice old run WOD on a beautiful Saturday! (Down here at least). I (accidentally) ran a 1:11 on my first 400. Apparently I got faster and didn’t even know it. Also, the WOD demo with Brian Mackenzie (http://bit.ly/xoX0uz) really helped me out, especially on the quick cycling and pulling my feet back quickly. I felt like I was floating more than running for most of the time!

  3. ??:?? 4 mile trail run. At Paradise Valley Conservation area off Paradise Lake Rd SR522. I planned to do the WOD but got busy on computer and didn’t see the time – one reason I do the WODs when I wake up!

    Gread nutrition class – this is my second time and learned some more details. Thanks Jeff. This may be more than you want to hear… on my experience going (mostly) Primal: Acid reflux has totally disappeared (was contemplating surgery), Blood Lipid meds, 3 types stopped and the Dr didn’t see the change in blood composition – stayed lower. She was floored and still doesn’t believe me – as I left the Dr said keep up the good work but recommended cutting back the fat and meat…

    Thanks again Jeff for all the great info at the nutrition class!

    • Totally impressed today how you were able to keep up your most excellent pace. One round is cool, but the consistincy was most excellent.

  5. Thanks for the great info on nutrition this morning. We admire how passionate you are about nutrition and it motivates me to finally commit to eating clean. John is so good about watching his intake and now it is my turn. Giving up chocolate equates to giving up happiness for me but as with any change, I’m sure it gets easier with time! 🙂 Have to remember, food is fuel.

    In my garage:
    30 hspu (2 ten# plates, 1 abmat)
    40 pull ups
    50 kb 1 pood
    60 sit ups
    70 burpees

    22:??

  6. Fran 4:19 Rx’d
    No PR today. Had to fight my way through 29 other people to get to the pull up bar.
    Good times nonetheless. 🙂

    • Arg, mine was like that too. Who’s your teachers? Nice job!!

    • Good job Matt and good practice for competition getting Fran done in 4:19 in the middle of a chaotic environment. The Marysville throwdown is just around the corner.

  7. 24:24 w/ 500m rows for runs (13.3wks-fi)
    90% rom, hard to figure out the right pace sometimes
    (1:39-1:45-1:44-1:47-1:46-1:46-1:45-1:42)
    Getting really impressed how much the awesome CFS people have been embracing the ‘uncomfortable’ wods lately, like the sprints. Totally pays off!

    Thanks Jeff for well thought out information and how you got there so we know how to approach new items. As well as the constant questions we ask you outside of today’s class. While I (and maybe others 😉 ) sometimes struggle to take the path, at least we know where it is and can keep working towards productive results.

  8. […] registering and follow the guidelines that we have set for the competition this year at our gym (see prior post).  We are encouraging our members that are competing in the CF Open to complete their weekly WODs […]
