Team FLEX APPEAL

The world-wide 2018 CrossFit Games Open is coming and like years past, we’ll be participating as a gym once again. Registering to play allows you to see where your fitness stacks up against the rest of the world/region/state/age division/etc. With that info you can plan for a better, more dedicated year to training/recovery/nutrition/habits/etc.

The way we do it is super fun: we’ll make three teams gym-wide with co-captains and fun team names. Then we’ll have a five-week internal competition full of laughter and sweat! The 2018 FCF Intramural Open will begin with 18.1 and end with 18.5, which will also a be a multi-event VERSUS throwdown.

That’s a lot to take in, especially if you’re new, but fear not! All will be explained in further detail beginning next week. Want to get a jump on it all?

  1. Register for the 2018 CrossFit Games Open
  2. Take the 2018 CrossFit Online Judges Course
  3. Send me the PDF of your complete Judges Course certificate
  4. Train hard, eat and recover well!

If you do all four things listed above and input an official score for all five events we’ll compensate the price of registration for your April dues! Those who also go all the way will receive a special treat from us at the gym.

Again, more details coming next week!

You’re signed up, hooray! Now what?

  • Note the re-test date: Monday April 2nd.
  • Pack your swim suit, towel, and clothes (for changing after) to bring with you.
  • Show up at least 5-10 minutes before your appointment time to allow for changing into your swim suit. Our bathrooms and changing rooms will be available.
  • The water is kept warm and filtered, however, it is recommended you go into the tank clean. If you workout prior to getting your test done, please take a shower before taking your test. Our shower is available for you to use however on a first come first serve basis – it is not guaranteed you’ll be able to use it before your test.
  • Do not eat a big meal 2 hours prior to testing.
  • What will happen during your appointment? Your name, age, weight, and height will be taken before you get into the water tank. Please watch the two videos below.
