The CrossFit Games are here!!! Are you a part of the FallOut CrossFit team? If not, join the team now before it’s too late! Go to the 2012 Games site and become part of FOCF’s team. The Open begins February 22nd, and we will be anxiously awaiting the posting of the first WOD. The format will be similar to last year – Each week, for a 5 week period, a WOD will be posted on the Games site. Athletes will have the week to complete the workout and submit his/her scores, which must be validated by FallOut CrossFit. Your workout must be performed in the presence of a FallOut CrossFit judge. Each workout will be done by the athlete on Fridays during the Open portion of the Games, unless extenuating circumstances hinder your ability to attend this designated time, and if so, you must contact the FOCF Team Captain’s (Tim/Tammy Smith).
Intimidated? Don’t think you can with the big boys and girls? You can, really. Really. Really. The great thing about the Games Open is that there is typically a portion of WOD that can be successfully completed by most people. Use these Games WODs to set new PR’s. Just ask the athletes that took part last year, they will agree. Push yourself to new limits, achieve things you never thought possible. Isn’t this the true spirit of CrossFit? Invest yourself.
