This year Goose Island CrossFit will be participating in The CrossFit Open. We will all be performing the same workouts and comparing results across the gym. We split the gym into two teams. One for Coach John and one for Coach Sara. Every week you will compete against yourselves for a reward at the end. Starting tomorrow CrossFit will begin announcing the workouts every Thursday at 7pm. We will watch the announcements live at the gym! Please feel free to join us. Every Friday we will perform the open workouts at the gym at each class, but we would love it if everyone could come in the evenings for our Friday Night Lights. We will stay late Fridays to make sure everyone can get in and to cheer each other on. Join us and get ready to feel the energy!
For scoring we are going to try to make it easy to track the score. At least 8 points will be up for grabs every week, in addition to a bonus point for each newly acquired skill. The 8 base points will be earned as follows:
- 1 point each for the top finishers, male and female, for the Rx and Scaled workouts (4 points total)
- 1 point each for the best combined team score, male and female, for the Rx and Scaled workouts (4 points total)
We want to reward everyone that helps win the workout, but we also want to acknowledge everyone who achieves something new during the open.
We will hand out a spirit of the open award to someone that personifies the spirit of the open. We want everyone to work hard and compete against themselves as well as others at the gym. Secondly, the winning team will get to design our run of summer apparel and pick our next party location in March.
