The CrossFit Games Open 2013 is just around the corner! For those of you that don’t know anything about the CrossFit Games or the nature of the Open, I suggest you take a “butcher’s hook” at this!
Now, we have the chance to make this a real community event but you have to help me out! The Crossfit Games Open is a great opportunity to get involved in the global CrossFit community, you will compete against thousands of people all over the world that you don’t know but as the weeks go on and the workouts change you will be able to see how you fair against your buddies at the gym, other CrossFitters in the UK, Europe Region and ultimately the best guys and gals in the World! It’s a real eye opener!
It’s a good chance to see where all that hard training you have put in over the past has gone too! I always think of the CrossFit Games Open as an annual test, although the workouts will no doubt be different to last year, I can look at the scores afterwards and go “you know what, I couldn’t even lift that last year” or “i felt better doing that movement than I did last year” or “I couldn’t even do one of those last year!”
You don’t have to be a CrossFit Games competitor to enjoy the open! The togetherness that you feel during these workouts, in a competitively judged environment is amazing, everyone working towards a common goal, to sit as high up on the leaderboard as they can! It’s great fun, like our own mini CrossFit Games! As I said before, although you have never met Joe Bloggs from Washington, because you have seen he’s name above you on the leader board, you hope the next workout is in your favour!
What I need from you guys, is a show of interest, you need to let me know if you want to be a part of this great annual community event! Only when I receive enough positive feedback can I make this happen! So spread the word and let’s put CrossFit London UK on the map!
