The 2019 CrossFit Open started this past Thursday, February 21, 2019, and will end in 5 weeks on Monday, March 25, 2019.
Register here. You can still register over the weekend before scores are due on Monday at 7pm CT (5pm PT). It costs $20.
We will have our Open Announcements each Thursday at 7pm during the 5 weeks. As in year’s past, we will have our on head-to-head line-up each week. This year we are adding a twist by having a theme each week. Do the Open WODs dressed according to that week’s theme and be eligible for prizes, and of course it’s just plain fun! Also as in year’s past, we will focus on the Open on Friday and Saturday. The Open WODs, with scaled versions as needed, will be our main WOD for all on Fridays regardless of whether or not you are actually registered for the CrossFit Open. On Saturdays, in addition to the Open WOD, we will have an alternate WOD. Then on Sundays during the Open we will be open from 2:30pm – 3:30pm only for those registered in the Open and doing the Open. We ask that people try not do or redo the WOD on Monday, but if you were travelling or something else kept you from doing it, then please avoid the 10am and 4:30pm classes.

Are you getting the results you want? If not, then have you cleaned up your diet? We cannot emphasize how important a proper diet is to health. Quality food is a must. Seven Sons is a great source for grass fed, antibiotic and hormone free meat that is ethically grown. They also offer great dairy products and more, and all of the highest quality.

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post the next day’s WOD here the day before.

This is week 2 of the CrossFit Open. As far as the strength cycle goes, we will be on an off cycle for the next 5 weeks. We will be doing a variety of strength variants during these weeks. This week we start off with a good FGB variant on Monday. On Tuesday you can choose between a strength or cardio focus. On Wednesday the focus is cardio. Thursday is a no measure active rest day or cardio, and then we’ll finish out the week with 19.2!

It is our hope you enjoy this week’s programming of functional movements that are constantly varied and meant to be done at high intensity. Keep in mind that quality of movement and range of motion come before going heavier and faster. Train smart!
