Opens Recap! 19.2

Last week was week 2 of the 2019 CFCL Intramural Opens! The Saturday event day was AWESOME! Such much energy, cheering, SWEAT!

The event included Toes to Bar, Double Unders and Cleans! It was a repeat event from 2016 which was so cool to be able to see the increases in fitness!


It was a great workout to get a few “firsts” and there were lots of people who did their first Toes to Bar and did more reps in workouts than they ever had before! There were also lots of clean PRs!

The support in the gym during the day was AMAZING! SO much cheering and encouragement. When our worst fear movements come up, like toes to bar and double unders in the same workout, what’s special about our events here is that you face those “fears” and with the support of the community do things you never thought you could. It’s an amazing time to be at CFCL.

Weekly Team Winner: Swole Guacamole! GREEN TEAM!
Weekly Team Spirit Winner: HUGE support throughout the entire day with team members staying after their workout to cheer their other team members on and huge rallying around each other….SWOLE GUACAMOLE!

Event day this week: Saturday! All Classes!

What’s the Open? Each week for 5 weeks (Starting last week) a new event is released by CrossFit HQ and people all over the world complete it. It’s CrossFits largest community event and for people who want to compete in CrossFit this is a potential step to do that.

For us here at CFCL, the Open is all about having fun.

The competition side of it isn’t about finding out how you can exercise against the 400,000+ other people worldwide who participate. It is to help the you and the other CFCL athletes  to push to new levels in fitness and accomplish things you’ve been working on and weren’t so sure you could do. The competitive side helps do that.

More so, it’s about community and a way for you to be part of it. Fitness is what we do here, but community is what we build. You can show up and get better at thrusters and pull-ups on your own but it’s much more fun to have people cheer for you, encourage and help you accomplish things you never thought you could and for you to do the same for others all while getting tons of high fives, fist bumps and warm and fuzzy feelings from the CFCL community.

ALL skill levels are participating…there are Rx, Scaled, Teens, and even Masters (50+) versions of the workouts.
