The CrossFit Open Is Right Around The Corner – Cherry Hill NJ CrossFit
In a couple months weekly workouts will be coming out to start the process in finding the fittest person on earth. The Open has only been around for a few years but it has changed the sport of CrossFit forever. It has made the Regionals and the Games more competitive than ever. Even if you are not going to the Regionals or Games, the Open is a fun way to see how you compare to other athletes around the world.
Right now is a good time to start preparing for the Open. Use this time to get better at CrossFit movements you are not as efficient in. Athletes should be practicing now for movements they are not as good at. This is a much better strategy than waiting until the announcements and hoping CrossFit does not pick movements you do not know how to do. If we have learned anything from CrossFit over the years, Dave Castro will always pick movements that are difficult and challenging.
What is nice about the Open is last year CrossFit had two different divisions, scaled and RX. The scaled division allows for more athletes to participate in the Open. You get to see how you compare among athletes closer to your skill level.
I would suggest anyone that has been doing CrossFit to sign up for the Open next year. The workouts are challenging but a lot of fun to do with your fellow box goers.
