The 2018 CrossFit Games Open is just around the corner! This is a great time for CrossFitters to test their abilities and do the same workouts as other CrossFitters around the world. Compete with and compare yourselves to other athletes in your age and fitness level. See how you do alongside others in your box, region, and the world. The spirit and competitive atmosphere of the Open also pushes you to accomplish things you never thought possible. Many times athletes achieve their first Pull-up or Muscle-up, or get a huge weightlifting PR during the Open. Do it to enhance your fitness, do it for your box or do it for fun! It’s Christmastime for CrossFitters! Check it out and sign up for it here.
