Common Questions about the Open

I scale most of my workouts, can I still participate?

Absolutely! Just like a normal day at the gym, there will be a scaled version of the workout for every ability level.

I’m not really interested in competition, should I still sign up?

You certainly are not obligated to, but the open is more about celebrating all the things that make our gym awesome like camaraderie and community than competition. None of us are going to the CrossFit Games, so we treat the Open more as an opportunity to have fun with our gym family.

What if I can’t make it to the gym each Friday night for 5 weeks?

We know that it can be a commitment to get to the gym each Friday night for 5 weeks, that’s why we will be programming the workout each Friday as the gym WOD so if you need to attend an AM class on Friday you can still get your workout in. We also understand that with travel schedules it may be hard to be here every Friday, so if you have to miss a week, it is totally okay and you can still participate during the weeks you are in town.

If you have any other questions, just ask a coach and we will be happy to help you. Looking forward to our best Open yet, full of fun, community, and lots of sweat! Get signed up today!
