2014 CrossFit Games Open

The 2014 CrossFit Games Open begins 2/27! We will be hosting Open workouts every Saturday at 11:30am (alternating between CrossFit Denver and CrossFit South Denver; stay tuned for the weekly hosting location) and every Sunday at CrossFit South Denver at 10:00am from 3/1 – 3/29. If you would like to do the Open and need a special time to be judged, join this Facebook group to request a judge at a particular workout time and we will do our absolute best to accommodate you.

The CrossFit Games Open is the largest CrossFit competition in the world (over 140,000 people participated last year), with 5 workouts being released over 5 weeks by CrossFit HQ. You need not be a super strong CrossFit competitor to compete; simply signing up for the Open to see how you stack up against everyone else in the region and the world is a great reason to sign up! If you would rather not sign up, but would simply like to come and participate in the Open workouts during the scheduled time, you are welcome to do that as well. When you register, select CrossFit South Denver as your affiliate and CrossFit South Denver Bears as your team (don’t worry if you’re not a super strong CrossFitter; only the top 3 individual scores count toward the team score. Nobody will bring the team’s score down). More information regarding the Open and registration is available here. Please e-mail Clark or speak with any coach if you have any additional questions or concerns about the Open. Go Bears!
