This October marks the start of the new 2020 CrossFit games season by kicking off with the 2020 CrossFit Open. For those of you who are newer to the gym, CrossFit HQ runs a five-week event called “The CrossFit Open“. This is how the best of the best try to qualify for the CrossFit games we see on TV. As always, we take the idea and make it our own. We’re not interested in finding out how fast you can exercise against 400,000 other people worldwide. We ARE interested in helping you push to new levels in fitness, level up your life, and get 1000 high fives from the Arsenal family. This is a time where we can put all our hard work to the test!
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so.
Because this is the second open of 2019, we decided to switch things up a bit. Starting October 12th (Week 1), we will be running the 2020 Open workouts On Saturdays at 7,9, and 11 am. The workouts will still be 100% coached just like your everyday class. Although there will be no intramural teams for this one, we are still going to be bringing the energy on Saturday mornings! If you’ve never experienced an Open workout at Arsenal then you are in for a treat! Those choosing to register will have a judge that counts all of their reps and ensures movement standards are being meant.
During week 3 of the Open workouts, we will be running our annual HalloWOD workout. While costumes are not required, they are extremely encouraged! A google doc will be sent out at a later date as we will be having some food and drinks once the workout concludes!
Although you are by no means required to register for the Open, I encourage you all to sign up. There is no better way to see how far you’ve come throughout the year than through the Open workouts. They are by no means easy workouts, but there is no better feeling than finishing one of these workouts and being surrounded by fellow gym members giving out fist bumps and high fives.
