CrossFit Games, Open, Regionals, Team

The 2011 CrossFit Games season is approaching!!

Here’s the layout for this years competition:

The “Open” is a worldwide competition to qualify to compete at the various regional competitions.  The way it works is CrossFit.com will post the specifics of the workout each week starting on Tuesday starting March 15th.  Athletes will have the week to finish the workout at either a certified gym (like us) or by submitting a video of them doing the workout to HQ.  Everyone competing for a spot either on an affiliate team or an individual competitor spot at regionals must do the Open.  This is so exciting!  There are some very cool prizes for heavily populated affiliates and yes scaling will be allowed for these workouts.  I really hope that almost everyone here will do the workouts!

After the Open is completed in mid-April the regional event will take place in Sumner.  We’re so lucky to live this close to where the regional is to be held!  The region is made up of many PNW states, like Alaska, Utah, Nevada, etc.  They have to travel forever to get here to compete.  A great goal for Local’s Gym is to be able to send a team to regionals!  The way this is figured out, is the top finishers from our club from the Open will comprise the team, pretty simple!

The CrossFit Games proper are to be held at the Home Depot Center in California!  Get your tickets now and figure out a hotel room because it’s going to sell out and by insane!!   Check out their website!   http://games.crossfit.com/
