Guys, it is that time of year to get registered for “The Open”. For those that aren't familar with this process, click on the video below for a “history of the games” recap. I am hoping that we can get 100 people signed up to participate this year. I have included information on how to get registered below. You have until the 22nd to get signed up!
Last year at Vitality, we had close to 75 of our members sign up for the Open. Many of these members had no aspirations of competing or trying to get to Regionals. They just wanted to challenge themselves and see how they ranked worldwide. In my opinion, it is an amazing experience just to take part in this process. It is a great opportunity to do a competition workout in the comfort of Vitality with your friends/family/coaches there to cheer you on and support you. There were over 27,000 competitors worldwide last year that took part in the open. I would bet that number is 3x greater this year. I can't stress enough that it doesn't matter whether you are trying to compete for a spot at Regionals or if you just want to have the ability to take part in the amazing experience. It is really easy to sign up and the costs is only $20.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
The “Open” will last 5 weeks and we will be hosting the workouts on Friday nights at 6pm starting with the first week's WOD on Friday, February 24th. But you will also have the option to do the WOD with any class throught the day on Fridays. Last year we had an awesome environment for all the athletes to come and participate in their WOD. I think it was the consensus that everyone involved was very happy they got to be a part of it and learned a little about themselves. For many of you, this will seem a little “outside of your comfort zone”….my first response would be, “good”, that is exactly why you SHOULD do it. However, I can assure you that there will be no expectations for your performance other than to do your best.
