Our goals at CFL are to educate and inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring.
Every year, CrossFit HQ runs a five-week event called “The CrossFit Open“. We’re not only interested in finding out how fast you can exercise against 400,000 other people worldwide. We ARE ALWAYS interested in helping you push to new levels in fitness, level up your life, and get 1000 high fives from the CFL family.
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so.
The Intramural Open is going to be our annual tradition at CFL (and copied by thousands of other gyms worldwide!)
We’ll divide you up into three teams, each with a Team Captain and a funny name of your choice.
You can earn points for your team by Accomplishing a PR or First (Most Points) participating (Second-most points) winning an event (Third-most points) showing the most spirit during events.
After five weeks of intense, novel workouts, we’ll reveal the Mystery Event Six.
Our draft will happen between now and February 1. Unlike elementary school, EVERYONE GETS PICKED. Then the Captains work hard to get you on the bus!
IF they try to recruit you before then, they’ll get a penalty..
Yep, we chose the FUN bunch to Captain, not our traditional top scorers. We want you to sign up this year; are you really going to say no to BOO? I don’t think so.
As usual, you can be tested at any CrossFit Group time on Fridays during the Open. You can just show up at any group time at Friday to test, and we usually run another test time on Sunday mornings. Your membership gets you into the tests (they’re just like regular workouts, but more challenging and fun.) The sixth event will be a freebie for anyone registered on any Intramural team.
For most of our members, the Open is an annual measuring stick to test their improvements in fitness.
We’ll have specialty programs available for those who want to improve one or two specific skills, too, and we’ll announce those by next week. In the meantime, if you’re dying to get your first toes-to-bars, or link your pull-ups, tell your coach! We’ll get you some 1:1 time and homework!
We may have some random draws each week for prizes, including gear, supplements, and training packages. The top team will also earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!
Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff.
Let’s start this party!
