Upcoming Events

CrossFit Open at FTX – It’s that time of year again. It’s the CrossFit Open! It starts on Thursday, February 24th and goes for 3 weeks, and it’s a great event for ALL fitness levels.
The WODs are released on Thursdays and we’ll run them on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each of the 3 weeks. During the CrossFit Open we will be open from 2:30pm – 3:30pm on Sundays to judge the Open WODs. If you are not doing the CrossFit Open, you can still come in on Sunday and do Open Box. On Saturdays we will have an alternate WOD available in addition to the Open WOD of the week.
Register here for the CrossFit Open. You do not have to register for the Open to simply do the WODs at FTX. You do need to register for the CrossFit Open if you want to be judged. Please avoid doing the Open WODs on Mondays unless you really couldn’t do them Friday through Sunday, and then please avoid the busy classes. The CrossFit Open is a great time of camaraderie, challenging yourself, being a part of the worldwide CrossFit community and so much more. There will be scaling options so that people of all levels can participate. Join in on this amazing annual event that anyone can do.
Even if you are not officially signing up for the Open, you will have an opportunity to battle it out with your teammates to see which team will be the winner – Team Red, Team Black or Team Silver! We will have signup sheets at FTX to join the competition. The coaches will assign each person to one of the three teams. We will have various challenges and games for all skill levels that the teams will complete throughout the three-week period (2/24-3/14) for excitement, rivalry, and bragging rights!

Overview of our programming this week

We continue preparing for the CrossFit Open. Even if you are not participating per se, the preparation we are doing is still great for improving your all-around fitness – Hey! It’s what we do! This week we only have a couple of traditional strength days on Monday and Tuesday, but Thursday is a no measure day with plenty of strength and accessory work.

Monday – Back Squat
– Split Jerks

Each week until the Open we will revisit some prior Open WODs. This week we are doing 21.3 on Friday. Monday is the shorter Hero WOD “Bell”. Tuesday is a couplet of cleans and rope climbs. Wednesday is the classic body-weight benchmark “Barbara”! Thursday is the no measure day followed by the 21.3 on Friday. We finish the week of with another Hero WOD “Bauer”.
