What are the 9 Reasons to Sign up for the 2022 CrossFit Open?
Push your limits in an international competition
CrossFit is about being comfortable in the uncomfortable. It’s about pushing your body to it’s limit and then getting up to do it again. A competitive environment with people supporting you from the sideline makes you push so much harder than you would in a normal class environment. It is here in the Open where you see what you are capable of.
You’ll be doing the workout anyways
We will be using the workout that was posted for the Open on the Thursday for the workout of the day the following Friday anyways, so you may as well register to be officially a part of all the fun.
Friday Night Lights are just the BEST
The competitive atmosphere is always on point on a Friday night as coaches and members take on the workout with the support of everyone. Hearing people cheer you on while you do the best that you can do creates an electric environment. Once you’ve been a part of it you never want to miss out again.
Set new PR’s as you bring out your best – You are more capable than you think.
Measuring your CrossFit progress is important for your development. The Open is a great annual benchmark of where you are compared to the previous year’s fitness level as well as compared to others around the world.
Discover your weaknesses
Uncovering weaknesses is something that everyone experiences, no matter what your CrossFit level is. With such a wide variety of your skills being tested in CrossFit, you are bound to have weaknesses. The Open tests all aspects of fitness so you can identify where your areas of weaknesses lie.
Connect with the CrossFit community worldwide
You’re used to training with your local CrossFit community, which is great. The Open gives you a chance to train with the worldwide CrossFit community as scores get recorded and shared with everyone.
To get perspective on how good the top CrossFit athletes are
Once you measure your scores against the top athletes, you’ll get perspective on how fit the top athletes are. Once you’ve given your best in the exact same workout as them and seen your score compared to theirs you will be wholly impressed and hopefully motivated to improve even more for the next Open.
It’s fun to be a part of the competition in your box. It’s fun to compete. It’s fun to be cheered on. It’s fun to cheer others. It’s fun to watch the leaderboard. It’s fun to compare your results to others and to see where your friends and the top athletes rank. You’ll train harder than you have before. You’ll be more committed to your training during this time. And you’ll have more fun doing so because that’s what the Open is all about. Doing the best that you possibly can and have fun while doing so.
Inspiration – Be inspired by and inspire others
Just taking the leap to join the competition could be an inspiration to others to also join in on the fun. While you’re giving your all, you’ll see others be inspired by your commitment to hold your bar till the very last second. Besides being an inspiration to others, you will also be inspired by those stronger and fitter than you. You’ll be inspired to be better. To get stronger and to give more as you see others leave it all out there during every single Open workout.
