The CrossFit9 Intramural Open season kicks off March 11th! This is your guide on how to participate.

Day Hour Minute Second

What the heck is the CrossFit Open?

The CrossFit Open is a 3-week fitness extravaganza! Anyone can participate in a weekly workout and get scored against hundreds of thousands of other CrossFitters in the world.

What is the CrossFit9 Intramural Open?

At CrossFit9, we prefer an intramural-style open, with an emphasis on fun, charity, and community quality time.

Every Thursday evening during the Open, CrossFit HQ announces the workouts online. We have a little 8:00pm watch party at the gym, and we will make an announcement in our community Facebook group to let you know what to expect for the workout.

Friday Night Fight

Open WODs are to be done during our weekly Friday Night Fight, kicking off at 6:00 PM every Friday March 12 – March 26. This is “game day,” so show up ready to have a good time and cheer others on. All of our athletes will warm up and do their workout in heats, trading judging responsibilities as we go.

Oh yeah, did we mention it’s a costume party, too?

Friday, Mar. 12, 6:00 PM – COOL CATS & KITTENS Expand

Sure, it’s been a full year since Tiger King premiered, but we still stan the Cool Cats & Kittens lewk. Show up in your best Big (or little) Cat attire.

 

Friday, MAR. 19, 6:00 PM – MUSIC FESTIVAL Expand

Rock your best Burning Man, Coachella, EDM, or Grateful Dead look.

 

Friday, MAR. 26: 6:00 PM – POST APOCALYPSE CHIC Expand

We’re alllll livin’ in apocalyptic times. So, instead of crying, let’s laugh at ourselves! Dress like a zombie, steampunk Mad Max-style rebel, or a survivalist. GET CREATIVE, FOLKS!

 

Important Notes:

  • If you decide to do your workout outside this time and want a judge, you will be responsible for using our community Facebook Group to find a person who can accommodate – or contact info@crossfit9.com. Please allow 48 hours of notice. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ZACK.
  • The weekly open workout will be our Friday CrossFit WOD in class.
  • There will be no regular 6:00 PM Friday WOD, so attend 5:00 PM or come to Friday Night Fight!
