The 2018 Foundation CrossFit Intramural Open (FCFio) is upon us! If you need a TL;DR essentially we are following along with the CrossFit Games Open (CGO) so we can all push each other to do our best with a friendly intragym competition. The CrossFit Games Open is an official CrossFit HQ event where CrossFitters all around the world compete in an online competition (1 workout a week for 5 weeks) and put themselves out there competing in a handful of divisions: Teens, Open Rx, Open Scaled, and multiple Masters groups.

I would love for you to sign up for the actual CrossFit Games Open. It’s $20+tax, but if you register and have a valid score for all five workouts, complete the Online Judges Course (and send in the PDF to info@), then I’ll credit your April dues $20. This way you’ve improved your knowledge base and performance as an athlete.

We have three teams in the FCFio this year:

– TEAM BE EPIC
– TEAM HURTS SO GOOD
– TEAM HELLABUFF

Unlike the past couple of years, instead of a Captain/Co-captain I’ve decided Leadership Groups would be a better alternative. There are many roles & responsibilities involved in inspiring and elevating your fellow swolemates and I think multiple leaders enforce better turnout and results while keeping all of us accountable. I’ve chosen a handful of athletes that exemplify the spirit of Foundation for these rolees and they will be announced soon.

Next week these teams will run a draft for all athletes currently signed up for the 2018 CrossFit Games Open. Today we will also put up a signup sheet for those who want to play in the FCFio, but not officially in the CGO. From there Teams will be set before the first event on Sunday 2/25. VERSUS XI will conclude the entire event (first event will be CGO 18.5).
