‘Tis the season to be TRAINING!
The 2013 Reebok Crossfit Games Open is just a few months away. In 2011 the Open saw 26,000 athletes register. In 2012 that number increased to almost 70,000. This year promises to be even bigger!!!
Registration for the Open will begin on January 30th. This years Open will run from March 6 – April 7th with athletes doing one workout per week for the 5 weeks of the Open. Athletes will compete to qualify for the Regionals (semi-finals) and will also get to see how they stack up against the rest of the world!
We will be running the Open workouts on Saturdays at Ultimate Crossfit during regular class times. You may also do (or repeat) the workout during regular Open Gym times. The Team Competition in the Open will be organized in the same fashion as last year. However, this year Ultimate Crossfit is going to try and field two teams to qualify for the Regionals. Team ORANGE and Team BLACK!!!
There is now a new Master’s Division in the Open: Men and Women ages 40-44. This is on top of the four age categories from last year: 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60 Plus. So, no you are not too old to do this
There is some prize money included in this years Open: The top performance worldwide for men and women in each workout will win $2,013. To be eligible for the prize money, you must provide video of your workout.
**Registration doesn’t open until Jan 30. The official games site info is here.
