Recovery Day – The CrossFit Open

As some of you already know, REGISTRATION FOR THE CROSSFIT OPEN IS LIVE.  The Open is part of a five-week, five-workout online competition “that unites CrossFit athletes all over the globe,” and pushes people to the extreme.

For 99% of athletes, the aim of the CrossFit Open is to have fun and to enjoy the process over the next month. However, because each workout is scored, some athletes are able to make it to the Regionals of old (the 2nd stage of the competition) and then even compete in the CrossFit Games in Madison, Wisconsin.

Some of our members have already registered, and it’s important that you do too. It’s an easy way to test your skills, push yourself, and have a community of hundreds of thousands encourage you on a day-to-day basis.

Your goal shouldn’t be to completely change your diet by eliminating all carbs, begin working out 2-3x a day, and to limit the amount of sleep you get. You should maybe clean up your diet because these workouts are taxing (trust us on this one), enjoy an extra rest day, and encourage those around you.

This is the season to see how far you’ve grown. Compare your standings from last year, take pride in your new PRs, and show off what you’ve learned the past 11 months. Focus on yourself and only try to impress yourself. The CrossFit Open is about you and the CrossFit community. All you have to do it show up and perform — so get after it.
