The 2022CrossFit Open begins tomorrow, and we have all the details here to make sure you stay on track and know what is happening. Be sure to get with your Teams toplan on making this a lot of FUN and another great Open for everyone!
Each Thursday, for the next 3 weeks, the workout will be announced at 1pmArizona time (12pm PT). You can watch the Open announcement by going to the CrossFit Game You Tube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9HK9ywg158This week, we will get to see CrossFit Games veterans Patrick Vellener, who was the second Fittest Man on Earth in 2021, & Noah Olson battle it out and training partners, Danielle Brandon & Bethany Shadburne compete to see who has the edge in the first Open workout of the season.
At WildFire CrossFit, our main event will begin on Saturday at 9am, and this year we will be cancelling morning classes so we can start earlier as we have a lot of athletes participating in the Open. We will also have times available on Friday night at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 10:30am. We will not have class on Friday nights at 6:30pm or Sunday Mobility at 10:45 am to make room for the Open. We will still have classes at 8:30am & 930am on Sunday, and plan to include some mobility at the end of each class to maximize recovery.
You will be able to register for your Heat time starting Friday morning at 9am in the Push Press app. Having more judges will increase the number of athletes we can have in each heat depending on the workout and the space required, so if you are able to judge, please let us know.
If you absolutely need another time to participate in the Open, please let us know and we will accommodate as much as possible. The beauty of this event is that if you have a cell phone, you can always come into the gym, or do it at home if you have the right equipment, and record your workout and submit your score on the world wide leaderboard.
While we would love for you to be there for the entire even to cheer on your fellow WildFire athlete and your Teams, please be sure to be there at least30minutes before your heat. This year, we are going to have a warm up and staging area set up outside that is run by one of the coaches so you have a specific warm up to get you ready for the workout ahead.
The Team competition is always a lot of fun and primarily based on participation, so be sure to show up with your team color and some flair to cheer your team on. Also, helping to judge will earn your team extra points. If you are on Facebook, be sure to friend the Coaches on your team so we can add you to your team’s page where we will be able to communicate plans and schedules for the week ahead.
The most important thing about this event is to show up ready to do your best and have some FUN!! On the 3rd Saturday and the final Open workout, we are going to have a party at WildFire, so mark your calendar for March 12thto stay longer and celebrate the end of the Open with both your Team AND your WildFire Family!
Now, let's get ready for a GREAT 2022 Open!!!
