CROSSFIT OPEN 2016

Just a few more days to sign up for the 2016 CrossFit Open! Remember, there is a scaled and RX division, so even if you think you won’t be competitive, just remember 1) You’re competing against yourself first, 2) PR’s are set every Open at CFS, 3) You can see where you stack up at the gym and worldwide, and 4) It’s all in good fun!

Make sure you sign up at games.crossfit.com before 8PM on Thursday! You have to register to compete on Friday nights! I’ll update the schedule on Frontdesk to allow you to sign up for heats on Friday night. The first heat will begin at 6pm, and tentatively we will have heats every 20 minutes or so. I’ll make any needed changes Thursday night after the first workout is announced.

Last year, we did Friday Night Lights and we’ll be doing something similar this year. There is no cost to participate except for your registration fee at the CrossFit Games website. The first week will be a dry run, and after that I’ll see who we have signed up and I’ll make teams. Teams will be all-guy and all-girl. Each week will have a unique challenge! Next week the challenge will be for your team to bring in canned goods for the Athens homeless shelter. The most winning-est team at the end will get a prize TBD. Also, after this first week, we will have the option of a “Thursday Night Throwdown” for those that wish to do the Open WOD right after it’s announced. And yes, there will be brownie points assigned to teams that have members throwdown on Thursdays.

Every Friday night, we will do the Open wod. Not Friday morning. Not Friday midday. Not Saturday. Not Sunday. You get the idea. Unless there’s some super duper special circumstance, everyone will do the Open WOD on Friday nights. We will still have classes on Friday mornings, but they will be completely different from the Open.

Don’t forget, it’s not all about working out: it’s about having fun! You’re encouraged to bring food pot-luck-style each Friday to share with your fellow athletes (as well as non-paleo beverages). I’ll be cooking a main course each week like I did last year. What are you bringing?!

REGISTER NOW!!!

#SWAG

Hoodies and t-shirts should be ready by next week at the latest and this week at the soonest. There is a slight delay on certain size/color combinations, so I’m going to wait until everything is ready before we hand out the hoodies. T-shirts will definitely be ready by next week, and we’ll have CFS as well as Sweatshop t-shirts for sale.

Trivia Nights

A few of us have been trying out a few different places to find a great place for Trivia during the week. The coaches and I are going to discuss the possibilities and choose a place (or two!) for all of us to get together each week to play trivia. I’ll post more in the CFS Facebook group later. ¬†Are you a member of the group yet?!

Beauty and the Beast Mode

As I mentioned last week, our Intergalactic Throwdown was a great success, and we’ll be donating $500 to the Athens Animal Shelter thanks to everyone’s support! So what’s next on the agenda?

April 30th: Beauty and the Beast Mode!

[/x_text][x_image type=”none” src=”http://crossfitsouth.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/beauty.jpg” alt=”” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_text]

Beauty and the Beast Mode will be a guy+girl competition on the last Saturday in April. If you don’t know who you can partner up with, post in the CFS group that you’re looking for your Belle or your Beast! My brother and I have just about finalized the workouts and we will make a separate post in the near future where we release all the WODs ahead of time. There’s going to be about 4 or 5 separate workouts this time! For this competition there will be three divisions: scaled, intermediate, and RX. I can’t wait to tell you more about it!

Terrapin Brewery

It’s been a minute since we last went down the street as a big group to Terrapin. I think we should all head out there this Saturday. Be there or be square!

See you at the GYM!

(workouts will be posted daily this week)[/x_text][/x_column][/x_row][/x_section]
