CrossFit Open Starts This Week

The CrossFit Games Open is in it’s fifth year. This world wide competition unites CrossFit communities and allows individuals to compare themselves with others from around the globe. Most will participate in the Open just for the fun and the experience, while some will make a competitive run to the next level of competition.

We truly hope we can get everyone at PBCF to participate if not for the competition, but just for the overall experience and for our box community spirit. If you aren’t going to participate we wish that you would still come on out and encourage and cheer on those that are participating. We have a few athletes here at PBCF that have the ability to move to the next level of competition and we sure want to make sure they get all of our support.

Open Workout Schedule:

Friday’s (starting this week 2/27/15)
Morning classes, lunch class and 3:30 pm regular classes will do the Open workout but will not be judged.

Open participants can begin warming up at 4:30 and heats start at 5:00 pm. Those participants arriving after 4:30 pm can begin their warm-up when they arrive and sign-up for a later heat. Heats will continue as needed. If necessary, the last heat will begin at 6:30 pm.

If you did not get a chance to do the Open workout on Friday evening for judging then come to Saturday session. Warm-ups begin at 9:00 am and heats begin at 9:30 am. Depending on how many participants come ┬áSaturday, we may have open gym time between 11:00 am – 12:00 noon with the possibility of extending Saturday hours if necessary during the five weeks of the open.

We can set up a time for participants to be judged for the Open workout, but this will be by appointment only. Be sure to get with Randy ahead of time, no later than Friday, if you need to schedule Sunday judging whether it be to repeat the workout or for an initial judging because you have a scheduling conflict and can’t make it to Friday evenings or Saturday.

Last, but not least, we want to encourage maximum participation for our box’s very first Open and possibly many of our athletes’ first experiences as well so we offer everyone who signs up for the Open and joins the PBCF team a FitAid punch card redeemable for 10 FREE FitAid beverages, a $30 value. Usually FitAid is priced at $3 a can and with a punch card you buy 10 and get one free. With your Open registration with Perdido Bay CrossFit, you will get the 10 FREE! We’ll see your registration on the Team page here and will distribute your FitAid punch cards when you come in to complete 15.1 this upcoming week.
