With all the changes to the CrossFit Games over the past year the start of the Open has been moved from late February to October. This means we get double the fun for 2019! Below is everything you need to know about October’s CrossFit Open and our Intramural!
What is the NXNW Intramural?
The CrossFit NXNW Intramural is a way for everyone at NXNW to participate in the fun of the 2019 CrossFit Games Open. Participants will be divided into 5 teams. These teams will be competing against each other for a prize at the end of the 2019 Open.
What is the CrossFit Games Open?
The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is the largest fitness competition on Earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. Anyone can sign-up to compete in five workouts over five weeks and post their scores online. You can sign-up online at www.games.crossfit.com
When & Where?
The Open workouts will take place at CrossFit NXNW during class times every Friday from October 10th – November 4th.
Where do I sign up for the NXNW Intramural?
You can sign-up at the gym by writing your full name on the whiteboard by the bathroom!
Can I sign-up for the Intramural even if I don’t sign-up for the Open online?
Yes!!! We encourage people to sign-up for the Open, especially if you have an interest in competing. However, there’s nothing wrong with only signing up for the Intramural.
How does the Scoring work for the Intramural?
1 Point – For every team member that completes the workout each week
3 Points – For every team member who finishes in the top 3 for male and female RX.
5 Points – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points. This can include themes, costumes, mascots etc.. A poll will be taken at the end of each week to decide which team is awarded the points.
1 Point – For each team member who posts a selfie or picture on social media before, during, or after the workout! You must use #crossfitnxnw and check-in at CrossFit NXNW for us to find your post and award you points!
Why should I sign-up for the intramural?
- You will already be doing Open workouts if you plan on coming Fridays during the five weeks. You may as well join in the fun.
- It’s fun! Fridays resemble more of a social gathering than a gym. People wear funny costumes. Memories are made!
- Feel what it’s like to be part of a team. All you have to do is show up and workout to help your team.
- You could win prize if your team wins!
