The open is upon us and the team is looking strong. But, could always be stronger. Sign your arses up, it costs $20 and you can sign up by clicking here.
What you get...the opportunity to be the world's fittest! The mere mortals amongst us, just get to have a ridiculous amount of fun for five consecutive weeks! This year, the workouts will be done on Saturday's, so that: the Friday morning class/coach doesn't suffer having to run the workout with little to no prep; there is more time for fun and frolics (most of you can spare a little longer for such activities on a Saturday); and if I decide to program the exact same movements on Thursday (which douchebag would ever do that), then you have a day of rest before attacking it.
It all makes perfect sense.
In order to keep up the camaraderie and good times throughout, mini "teams" will be allocated from those who have signed up to battle it out in as many inventive and ridiculous ways as creativity will allow; atop of the already assigned WoDs.
Teams Red, Green and Blue will be drawn at the in house Throwdown on Feb 17th, before you get drunk and one full week prior to the first Open WoD, 18.1. Giving you plenty of time to create your game plan with your Team Captain's (picked at random and also before you get drunk) as well as your team coaches.
Each team will have two coaches assigned. Set to lead by example by undertaking each workout head to head, no shirt, no chalk, and wearing a £7 pair of pumps bought from the local Tesco Extra; just like the good old days, old fashion stare down! ;-)
For the entire open, teams will acquire points for workout wins, for participation, for those deemed to have gone above and beyond for their fellow athletes (whether they are on their team or someone else's), as well as performing weekly tasks.
Throughout the open, members will also gain points for each friend (one per person) who attends each "Saturday morning lights" event. These friends should not have done CrossFit before but be up for a kicking (;-)) and more importantly a laugh. The ability to count double unders will also be appreciated.
For Week 1 - 18.1, teams will gain 1 point, per item of clothing worn in their team colour.
