The 2018 CrossFit Open at CrossFit SE11

11 Feb

You can’t have helped but notice that the 2018 CrossFit Open is just around the corner. Here’s what you need to know about the 2018 Open at CrossFit SE11.


The CrossFit Open runs for 5 weeks from Feb 22nd to Mar 26th. The WODs are released very early on Friday mornings and you have the weekend to complete them.

As previous years, Friday evenings will play host to the main event Open WODs. There are two slots to book into, an early and a late, but as per usual timings are at the mercy of Dave Castro and whatever he programmes.

If you can’t make Friday nights or the Open Gym slots, the coaches will be available to book for special 1-2-1 PT sessions for £20 per workout. They will advise you on your warm-up, strategy, and coach you through the workout as they judge at a time which is convenient to you.

Final Friday and Social

As ever, the final Friday on 23rd March will finish with a social, awards and probably beer-pong, This year’s (totally optional) theme is Fantasy. Think Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, C.S. Lewis, Wizard of Oz, or Alice in Wonderland.

We’re currently looking for a venue to move onto afterwards. More on this later.


Last year, you were sorted into teams. This year, your coaches will head up their own Tribes (sorted at random when you sign up).

If you sign up for  SE11, Nick, Juan and Tim will lead teams (team names at coach discretion). To be part of a team you will need to be signed up for the Open on the Games Website, but you do not need to be signed up on the Games website to participate (you just need to book into the workouts).

Or if you sign up for CrossFit London, Mike, Joe, Kyle and Carolyn will lead teams.

Prepping for the Open

Between now and the 23rd February keep an eye on the blog and the Facebook group for news, updates, tips, and special events.
