The CrossFit Open begins February 25th which is less than a month away! The Open is a Worldwide CrossFit Competition that is open to everyone. It is the ideal opportunity to Defy Your Limitations by taking yourself our of your comfort zone and completing 5 workouts over 5 weeks. This will be done in the Box under the watchful eye of one of our qualified Judges. The workouts are no different to what you have experienced in the Classes, and a Scaled Division is available for those just getting started or those who have yet to master some of the more complex movements in CrossFit.
To check it out and get registered go to www.crossfitgames.com and make sure you select CrossFit Teesside as your affiliate as well as join our team! We hope to see as many people as possible joining in the Fun, we promise that EVERYONE will take something positive from this experience!
Today is “OPEN GYM” day. The box is open at the usual times, however there are no set classes. Use today to Catch Up on a recent WOD you have missed. Today is an ideal opportunity to come in and practice your Technique, or hit some Strength Training in the lifting section. If you are feeling beat up from the past few days of training, come and get your Stretch on in the Mobility Corner or take a well earned Rest Day 🙂
A new addition to Thursdays “Open Gym” is the “Thursday Beast WOD” (aka “Throw Up Thursdays). This is an endurance based WOD which stays clear of all things technical, it will include things like Running, Rowing & Skiing. You may find yourself also flipping tyres and carrying things, possibly even the occasional trip up “The Hill”.
There are still no set classes on a Thursday, this is just something that you will find on the Whiteboard along with all the other catch up WODs from this week. If this is something you like the sound of then feel free to come in and crack on (there is usually a group doing this at 8:30am & 9:30am, and a couple of groups going for it in the evening). We will be alternating between an Interval style workout and a good old fashioned long Slog on a weekly basis, it will not be posted the night before, so come prepared for all situations
