2017 CrossFit Open

What is it?
The CrossFit Open is a worldwide ONLINE competition that consists of 5 workouts, released once each week beginning February 25th. Once the workout is released, you will have 5 days to complete the workout (Thurs - Mon) and submit your score or video onto the CrossFit Games website.  The top 20 men and women in each region will advance to Regionals, where the top 5 will advance to the CrossFit Games.

Who is this competition for?
Everyone. Literally. This is one of the most inclusive competitions in the world. There are no requirements to participate other than the $20 fee, and the 14 year-old age requirement. This is for newer CrossFitters, all the way up to those athletes who are competing to make it to the CrossFit Games. There are even masters age divisions: 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60+, AND there are options to SCALE workouts.

Where is it?
That's the beauty of it: you can do the workout wherever you want. You can either perform the workout at a registered affiliate (that's CrossFit Central Houston, to you) or you can do it at home, at 24 Hour Fitness, at your apartment gym, wherever...via video submission. Of course, we pretty much assume that you'll be doing it at CFCH. Your workout will be judged and validated by us.

Wait....there's judging?!
Yep. But don't worry - you'll be judged by a classmate or coach which means that we'll count your reps/rounds and make sure that each one counts. If you've been to classes on Fridays lately, it'll be just like that. Then, you'll enter your score to your online profile, and CFCH will validate that it is the correct score.

When will the workouts be held?
We will do the workout as our daily WOD at the gym, on Fridays - including Friday Night Lights. This means that whether you've signed up to compete in the Open, everyone's doing the workout posted by the CrossFit Games website anyways. So...you might as well sign up for the competition so that you can see how you're doing worldwide! 

But I'm pretty sure that I'm not going to win....
Who cares! Do you tell your kids that they shouldn't play sports unless they're going to win?! NO! You encourage them to play because it's FUN. Because you might do something that you didn't know you could do! Because you might push yourself a little harder than you knew you could push! On top of that, the top 3 mens and womens scores each week contribute to the CFCH Team score - we NEED you! 

I'm still not sure...
Come to class on Fridays to get an idea of what it'll feel like to have someone next to you counting your reps and pushing you, then see how you feel. We'll be doing past workouts from the Open, so if you're concerned about what the workouts will be like, this will also give you a good idea. 

This is a community building experience and one of my favorite times of year! If you have any questions about the CrossFit Open, don't hesitate to ask us during class! If you know you're interested, sign up here: games.crossfit.com. Plus, you get a FREE TSHIRT. You basically can't lose by signing up :)

ZONE Potluck

potluck.jpg

Get recipe ideas, learn how to compose a zone blocked meal, and let's EAT! For this potluck, you'll need to bring a dish that represents a macro nutrient (protein, carb or fat). For instance, a pan of meatballs (protein), or a tray of sweet potato hash (carb). Please do your best to choose QUALITY FOODS (that's whole foods that are nutrient dense). You'll need to bring an index card or sheet of paper that has the name of your dish, and what constitutes 1 BLOCK (is it 100g? 1/3 of a cup?), and something to measure that block with, like a measuring cup or a food scale. That way, each person can compose an appropriately blocked meal by trying out a bunch of different things! You don't have to have attended the nutrition seminar in order to come to this potluck, but you will have to know what a BLOCK is; visit zonediet.com to learn more, email info@crossfitcentralhouston.com and we'll help you out!

Memorial Day "Murph"

Each year, CrossFit boxes around the world gather on Memorial Day to honor our veterans by doing a WOD named after LT. Michael P. Murphy, called "Murph." If you've seen the movie "Lone Survivor," then you know the story of Mike Murphy and his heroics. "Murph" was created in his honor and consists of a 1 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 air squats, and another 1 mile run.....all done with a 20# weight vest. 

On Monday, May 25th, we will have one class at 9AM to do Memorial Day "Murph." Of course, movements and reps can and will be scaled as necessary. We will not have weight vests on hand for you to use, so if that's something you'd like to try, then you'll need to acquire your own. Join us in remembering America's veterans through this challenging, and meaningful WOD.
