It’s that time again CrossFit GroundSpeeders!!!


The ‘2016 OPEN’ is upon us. We will be hosting Friday Night Lights every Friday night during the Open. There will be no structured classes offered during Friday night lights as we will run heats for Rx and Scaled athletes. Heats will start at 5pm, they will be on a first come first serve basis and the last heat will start at 7pm.  We encourage YOU to sign up for the open and compete as it is a great way to see where you stand within the box and worldwide.  The atmosphere alone at these Friday night lights is well worth the sign up!!!  At the end of the 5 weeks, the winners from each age group (male and female) will receive prizes. Make-up times for the Open WODS are to be held on Sundays during open gym ONLY.  If you are interested in signing up for the Open but the above times are a conflict for you, please contact Darcy or Gio.

Register for the Open

The CrossFit Games Open is the world’s premier test of fitness. Since 2011, the five-week five-workout online competition has accurately ranked the fitness of thousands of competitors.

Held in CrossFit affiliates and garage gyms, the Open is designed to be accessible to all athletes while rigorous enough to challenge the world’s fittest. Fourteen-year-old high school freshmen compete in the Open, as well as their 77-year-old grandparents and everyone in between.

Sign up for $20, do the workouts, enter your scores, and you will be ranked in relation to your peers in your age division, competition region, state and country.

Workouts are released online each Thursday and athletes have until the following Monday to submit their scores.

The week’s workout is released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PT. Each time a workout is released, athletes will be given two versions: Rx’d and Scaled. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the Scaled option will be designed to be accessible to the vast majority of athletes who train in CrossFit affiliates. Rx’d will challenge the world’s elite.

The workout write-up, movement standards, explanation video, and scorecards will all be published on Review the standards before you start.

You can complete the workouts at a participating CrossFit affiliate in front of a judge, or film your performance from anywhere you want and submit a link as proof.

Make sure to submit your score before score submissions close each Monday at 5 p.m. PT. Late submissions will not be accepted.

There are many ways to excel in the Open. The Open will determine the fittest man and woman in each U.S. state, Canadian province, Australian territory and country worldwide. CrossFit will also use the Open to find the fittest in the military, emergency medical services, firefighting and law enforcement.

The Open is also the first stage of a three-stage season that culminates in the CrossFit Games. The world’s fittest men, women, teams, teenagers (14-17) and masters (40+) will compete for the chance to advance in the season, with the ultimate goal of making it on the world stage at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, this July.

However, for most people the Open is not about trying to earn a title or qualify for the next stage of the CrossFit Games season. It’s about joining the global CrossFit community in a celebration of fitness for a few weeks each year. To connect to others in your box as well as those a world apart through the experience of suffering through the same workout at the same time. It lets you revel at the strength and skills you’ve developed over the past year, and learn what you need to improve.
