- What is the Open?
The Open is comprised of five workouts over five weeks. The workouts will be released every Thursday evening during the five weeks of the Open. You can watch the live announcement of the workout. It will be streamed on the CrossFit Games website.
The Open at NELA Athletics is turned into a five week in house competition. There will be 3 levels:
Level 1 – Novice/Ignite
Level 2 – Intermediate
Level 3 – Rx
- How do I sign up?
- Can Ignite participate?
Yes! This year igniters can participate! The CrossFit Open workouts will be modified to fit Ignite standards. Ignite will be a shared division with Novice.
- What if I can not make it to the 7:00pm Friday Night Lights?
You can come to your regular scheduled class during the day to complete the workout. You have until the following Monday to turn your score in so if you miss class you can come in on your own time to do it as long as you have a judge. Preferably a Coach.
- What if I’m traveling?
If you are going to be out of town, contact the nearest CrossFit box and find out whether they are doing the Open WOD. You can then check in with them about dropping in to a class to complete it. Be mindful that you may have to pay a drop in fee. Also if you are participating in the intermediate, novice or level 2 division, the scaling might be different at other boxes. Our scaling options will be available on zen planer if you are out of town.
- What happens if I do not turn in my score?
If you miss a workout or you do not make it up in time, you will receive a 0 for that workout and it will affect your overall score
