We will find out tonight

Last reminder about the Open.

We have a remarkable 84 athletes signed up for the Games (hoping for a few more). For all of those registered, this is how the season will work.

Every Thursday at 9pm for 5 weeks, Dave Castro will announce the workouts. As owners, we find out at the same time as you, so we’re not privy to any insider info. We will have a live viewing of the first workout at the gym on the big screen. After we find out the workout, we’ll set up heats in Zenplanner (given the large amount of unknowns, it might take a while). There will be NO wait lists for the heats. Once a heat is full, it’s full. Please register NO LATER than Friday at 12pm.

Every Friday, starting at 5pm, we will brief the workout. We will review the movement standards, the scaling options and provide tips and strategies for getting the best score possible. Please try to be there for the briefing as many former participants have found this helpful.

Shortly after 5pm, we will start running heats of the workout until everyone has been put through. There is a scaled division like last year, so you just need to show up and do the work. You are also able to scale the scale. If you think you can hit it Rx, you NEED to email me. If you aren’t sure, email to ask!

Right now, we are in need of judges, so if you can offer to help, please take the JUDGES COURSE and let me know ASAP.

If you’re not able to join us on the Fantastic Friday Frodown (I just made that up), you have the option of doing the workout on Sunday during the Open gym at 9am. A few trainers/judges will be available during that time.

Because the minority our membership is competing, that leaves the majority that are not. We cannot change our programming for the month for the minority, so that might mean lowering the weight/intensity of certain workouts. HERE’S SOME ADVICE ON HOW TO PLAN YOUR WEEK.

Phewf! I think that just about covers it. As always, if you have any questions, ask myself or any trainer. Only 1 more sleep!

    A reminder of the Intramural points:

    +1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at CrossFit Moncton each week earns one point (scores must be submitted). Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!

    +1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at CrossFit Moncton for each workout (Rx only) gets an extra point for their team.

    +5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points. Weekly themes participation will also be highly considered by our panel of judges.
