Why your coaches want you to sign-up!
Coach Rob M: It's an opportunity for the global crossfit community to participate in the same event. It's like being part of a crossfit class with a couple hundred thousand people in it. Some are brand new, some have been doing it for 2 years, some even 10 years. It's an opportunity to "compete" within the walls of your own affiliate and have EVERYONE cheering you on. It's all about the atmosphere. We as coaches and members create the atmosphere we want to be in. So let's pack the gym every Saturday, come together and have fun doing what we love to do.
Coach Ilch: I think the open gives us all a chance to come together and push ourselves further and harder than we think we can. Its a rare opportunity for us all to support each other regardless of skill level or personal goals and hit that extra rep or that first double under. I want people to do it so they understand how great this sport and this place is and I'm pumped to cheer them all on.
