Rest Day


  1. The 2011 season will start with the CrossFit Games Open on March 15th. The Open is a six-week-long competition open to anyone in the world. There will be one workout per week, and athletes must submit a validated performance, either by uploading a video of the workout or by performing it at a Registered Affiliate. Everyone will be ranked instantly with everyone else in their region and with everyone else in the world. The cost will be $10 in the US and Canada, $5 in the rest of the world. The Open will also screen the top athletes and teams for Regional Qualifiers, and Masters athletes directly for the Games. All aspiring Regional and Games competitors must register on the Open Website no later than March 20th at 17:00 PDT. Each week athletes from around the world will complete the same workout, and submit their validated times or video proof to the Open Website.
    The 2011 Games will take place at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles on July 29-31 with a $1million total purse. There are five main competitions: Men’s Individual, Women’s Individual, Affiliate Cup Teams, and Men’s Masters and Women’s Masters (each with four age divisions: 45-50, 50-55, 55-60, 60+). The Fittest Man and Woman on Earth will each receive $250,000 cash, provided by Reebok. There will also be many cash and material prizes for the other winners and top performers.

    I know Crossfit Jenks and Next Generation Crossfit are letting people sign up and they will have judges there to count your reps. It is something to think about. I will come out and cheer on anyone who decides to go out for it.
