The 2023 CrossFit Open is upon us! Each year, CrossFit uses the Open as a way to find their top fitness athletes to compete at the CrossFit games. A really cool thing about the Open is that we get to compete all together!
What is the CrossFit Open?
The CrossFit open is a yearly, worldwide CrossFit competition that takes place over 3 weeks usually at the end of February and beginning of March. Anyone in the world can participate!
How do I sign up?
You can sign up officially for the open here but Dissent will also be hosting an in house 2 team competition!
- Talk to a coach
- You will automatically be entered into our live draft (Tune in 2/10 at 7pm)
- Bring a coach $20
We will have 4 divisions across 2 teams. RX Male, RX Female, Scaled Male, and Scaled Female. A coach will help you pick which workouts you should push RX and which would be better scaled! You will have an assigned team color and team name. If you have done the Open before this is a great time to see how much you have improved from last year. Better yet, if this is your first time doing the Open, you will get to see how you stack up against the other competition.
How do I win??
- 1 point for participating in the workout on Friday
- 1 point for judging
- 1 point for wearing your team color
- 1 point for a post on social media tagging @dissentathletics
- 1 point for the winner in each division
Don’t forget to bring your $20 because the winning team will get THE OTHER TEAMS’S $20
Who should sign up for the in house competition?
The open is for ANYONE and EVERYONE. This means all the way from Rxing every workout to those new to fitness, you can participate. You may have goals for qualifying to the next round or you are wanting to test your fitness. Either way, have fun doing it!
What is Friday Night Lights?
Workouts will be released Thursdays 2/16, 2/23, and 3/2. Make sure to tune in on Thursdays in order to go over each workout with tips and tricks from our coaches. We will compete together each Friday on the following day to cheer each other on. Heats will be set up so everyone will have a chance to participate, and don’t worry, the morning classes will also be completing the workouts. These are the workouts you do all the time! Overall, It’s just more fun to imagine everyone worldwide is doing the same workout.
