The 2021 CrossFit Open is less than 1 month away, and we are so excited to see what you got! Once a year, CrossFit Boxes all over the world participate in the same workouts and compete against each other. For three weeks beginning March 11, CrossFit will release a workout and athletes have 5 days to complete it and submit their scores. This year, the top 10% of all athletes in each division will go on to compete in the quarter finals which will be held at the beginning of April.
We invite all our athletes to register for the open, which you can do here. By no means do you have to, but this is a fun way to keep track of your fitness over time. Early on in my CrossFit years, I did not register for the Open, despite doing all of the workouts. Fastforward and I will tell you I think it would be really cool to see my progress (ups and downs!) as an athlete over the years. So, you by no means have to register, but we would love to see you sign up – plus if you do you can get $5 off a limited edition CrossFit Bethesda 2021 Open T-Shirt!
This year, we won’t be able to have the big CrossFit Open parties like in years past, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to have some fun! On Fridays during the Open, we will be completing the Open workout in every class. If you are registered with CrossFit for the Open and would like to complete it in class on Friday, we will make sure you have a judge for your workout. If you are serious about qualifying for the Quarter Finals, we highly recommend signing up for a slot on Saturday during the Competitors Club to complete your workout. If you have any questions, please talk to us ASAP!
To celebrate our health and fitness and hopefully some warmer spring weather, we are planning a limited edition CrossFit Bethesda 2021 Open t-shirt (see this post) and an outdoor Happy Hour in the Bethesda Streetery on Saturday, March 27th. Mark your calendars for the Happy Hour which will begin at 5pm in the Streetery outside Rock Bottom Brewery. More details will be coming out closer to the event so watch the Newsletter and announcements for more info!
