The CrossFit Open is back after a brief hiatus. While this year is sure to be a bit different, we’re thrilled to continue the tradition of the Open and our own CrossFit NXNW Intramural! CrossFit has aimed to make this the most accessible Open yet, including workout options which can be completed at home, in person, or online.
Whether this your first Open/Intramural, or you’re a long time participant, we have the answers to all your questions on how this year will work!
What is the CrossFit Open?
The 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
What is the Intramural?
Whether or not you sign-up for the official CrossFit Open online, you can still sign-up for our Intramural for free. The CrossFit NXNW Intramural is a less serious, fun way for everyone at NXNW to participate. Participants will be divided into teams. These teams will be competing against each other for a prize at the end of the Open. Not super competitive? No problem! You can help your team win simply by just showing up and completing the workout! These workouts are scaled to your ability just like every other workout, and you might as well join in the fun because we’ll be completing the workouts in our classes anyway.
When & Where?
The Open workouts will take place at CrossFit NXNW (in person & online) during class times every Friday from March 12th – April 9th.
If I’m still working out at home should I sign-up?
Of course! We will be able to bring you into the gym with our online classes so you can still join in the fun and see your friends. Even if you have no equipment at home, CrossFit will be releasing an at home version so you can still participate.
Who makes the workouts?
CrossFit creates the workouts and they will be announced each Thursday evening throughout the five weeks.
Where do I sign up for the NXNW Intramural?
You can sign-up here! We’ll randomly select the teams, and announce them days before the first workout!
Can I sign-up for the Intramural even if I don’t sign-up for the Open online?
Yes!!! Our goal is to get everyone to participate in the Intramural.
What if I don’t feel like competing?
The Intramural isn’t as much about the competition as it is about the fun. We also tend to eat a little healthier and workout more consistently if we’ve committed to the intramural.
What if I can’t make it on a Friday?
You will have a chance to complete the workout on another day if you miss Friday.
What if my class time is filled up on Friday?
Add yourself to the wait-list and we’ll do our best to get you in the class. You will have a chance to complete the workout on another day if you miss Friday. This will be our first time running an intramural in this fashion so we will be learning and adjusting on the fly.
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!
