1. Introducing the CrossFit Open and Black Widow CrossFit
The CrossFit Open is an annual worldwide competition where participants of all fitness levels can compete and test their limits. Black Widow CrossFit is proud to be hosting the CrossFit Open for its members and any guests on February 17th, February 24th, and March 3rd. We call this event Friday Night Lights, where we celebrate the accomplishments and have some friendly competition. The Open provides a great opportunity for athletes to measure themselves against their peers and find areas that need improvement in order to reach higher levels of performance. With proper training and dedication, the CrossFit Open can become a beneficial experience that helps you grow as an athlete.
2. What to Expect During the CrossFit Open
The workouts are announced on Thursday evening by CrossFit Headquarters during a video event at https://games.crossfit.com/. Nobody knows what these workouts will be before this announcement, but we have practiced several previous Open workouts in the last few weeks.
Then, on each Friday night, Black Widow will host an event where you can complete the workout and cheer on your favorite athlete at the gym. We may have some friendly competition set up for a showcase event during this event. Rumor has it that Liz and Tyler may go head to head during the first workout.
We will have certified judges to grade your performance during the workouts. They will ensure you are performing the movements to standard and let you know when you do not get credit for a repetition, also known as a "No Rep." We will start with a small group competing against each other, and everybody can cheer on their favorite athlete.
3. The Open Magic
The CrossFit Open is a special time of year for CrossFit athletes. It's an opportunity to challenge yourself and push your limits. This is often the time that people get their first double-under, first pull-up, or set new personal records with weight. People call this phenomena the Open Magic. Whether it's your first ever CrossFit workout or you're aiming for a new PR, the atmosphere of friendly competition will make it an unforgettable experience. So don't miss out on this amazing opportunity and join us at Black Widow CrossFit for the annual CrossFit Open!
