A few words on the CrossFit Games Open Competition…

Click here to find what all the fuss is about.  As of today, we have 24 competitors on the CrossFit Winnipeg Team, so if you’re interested in competing this is a great opportunity to do so, you don’t need to set aside an entire weekend.  There are also masters categories for those 40 and over.  We will have two times slots set aside for competitors to get their workouts officially scored and submitted and if you want to come out to cheer on the athletes, you’ll want to show up between 6pm and 8pm on Thursday nights and between 11am and 1pm on Saturdays between February 22nd and March 24th.  We will also be doing the competition workouts during regular classes on Thursdays during the Open.  What this means for members not competing is just a few class schedule changes so make sure you have a look at your schedule before you come in.

A few words on the new OPEN GYM Hours…

Please note that this is not a free for all and license to come in and do any random crazy workout!  We care about your success and know that the best way to achieve that success is with carefully thought out programming and a lot of skill work.  We will program a list of options for that time, which will include making up missed workouts for the week, working on the skill of the week, or choosing from a selection of recent crossfit.com workouts.  However, the coach will not do a structured warm-up and cool down as a group.  This will be a good opportunity for competitors to make up missed workouts or to work on skills or to do a double training day. When you arrive, please let the coach know what you are doing and ask for recommendations or suggestions based on your strengths, weaknesses, and training schedule.  E.g.  you may not want to do a bunch of squatting on Saturday afternoon if that’s what we’re doing in regular class on Sunday…
