To celebrate the end of an awesome Open season, we’re having a potluck this Sunday at 12:30pm, just after all athletes finish the final workout 15.5! We will be running heats from 11am-12:30 so come in and get this WoD finished, bring something delicious to share and we’ll bring the beer! This year’s Open has been tough. We’ve seen max lifts, a whole slew of gruelling gymnastics and there is still more to come. This last week will be challenging, but we’ve seen so much hard work put in and progress is being made. Great work everybody. Let’s celebrate and relax with a few beers and some great food!
The CrossFit Open is just one week away! This is an awesome opportunity for you to see where you are at in your own training, regardless of your skill level or experience competing. The Open is the first step in the road to the games, but with a new scaled division, anyone can and should compete! It’s a great experience. With one week left to compete, you can email us at email@example.com or let Kat or Karina know and they will help you register.

The CrossFit Games stand alone as the ultimate test of fitness. No test, regardless of its lofty claims, can grant legitimate title to the best without first providing access to all.
The 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games season begins with the online Open. Anyone can sign up to compete in five workouts over five weeks and post their scores online. Last year, the Open reached more than 209,000 athletes from around the world.
You can either perform the Open workout at a participating CrossFit affiliate where you will be judged in person, or you can film your full performance and upload it to YouTube or another video-sharing site. The video will be displayed alongside your score so other CrossFit athletes can be your judge.
You are free to make as many attempts at the Open workout as you please. Your only limit is time. You have four days—96 hours—to complete the week’s workout and submit your best score to the Games site. The week’s workout is released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PST, and scores are due the following Monday at 5 p.m. PST.
The 2015 Open begins Thursday, Feb. 26. That evening, tune into the live Open announcement show streamed to Games.CrossFit.com. Director of the Games Dave Castro will announce Open Workout 15.1 and moments later top Games athletes will complete that workout going head to head.
Athletes will submit their scores throughout the weekend. The hard deadline for score submissions is 5 p.m. PST, Monday, March 2. Don’t be late!
15.1: Feb. 26 -March 2
15.2: March 5-9
15.3: March 12-16
15.4: March 19-23
15.5: March 26-30
A scaled option of the Open workout will be released each week of the Open. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the scaled option will be designed to make the Open even more accessible.
