2019 Warrior CrossFit Muscatine Intramural Open
Who’s ready for our 2nd annual WCFM Intramural Open? Last year was a blast watching all four teams duke it out over 5 weeks, everyone pushed themselves and it was the highest sign up rate for the Open ever at WCFM. We have MANY new faces again this year and it’s going to be an amazing event that EVERYONE can participate in.
How it works
If you’re unfamiliar with the CrossFit Open, it’s CrossFit’s largest annual online competition with over 400,000 people registered from around the world in 2018. Workouts are released each Thursday night for 5 weeks. For most of us, the Open is a time to see how we’ve improved our fitness in the past year and push outside our comfort zones. Our community comes together and forms an amazing bond during this time. This year, we go into battle each Friday with our teams as we compete in our version, The Warrior CrossFit Muscatine Intramural Open.
For five consecutive weeks on Friday, we will host The Open at WCFM in a team competition format. The event will be ran during normal class times throughout the day on Fridays, however the real energy will happen Friday evenings. If you can’t make the Friday evening events, no problem just perform the WOD during your normal class time. Athletes will represent one of four teams. The teams will earn points for participating in a variety of activities listed below. Each athlete that registers on The CrossFit Games website is eligible to be on a team. ANYONE with ANY experience level (1 week to 10 years) who wishes to have fun with this event is welcome! A link to register is below. Team captains will recruit members for their team over the next few weeks. This years team captains are…. Chad Johnson, Heather Walter, Kent Jurgersen, and Rachel Plummer.

Prepping for The Open / Don’t be Nervous
Every year, athletes get nervous or are uncertain about participating in The Open. Don’t be. The Open is an amazing experience and we have been preparing for this for the entire year. If you are worried about movements or weights that you are unable to perform there is a scaled option each week that you can participate in. You will still get a great work out, earn points for your team, and get a big push from the WCFM community!
If you are unable to make the Friday workout and still want to participate in that weeks event, you’ll need to schedule it with a coach. Saturday morning classes will change up a bit during the open. On Saturdays will have our normal 9:00am class and then a open gym afterwards for anyone to complete their open workout from that week.
All workouts contributing to this event must be judged!
We look forward to another great year of the CrossFit Open, and appreciate you all considering this. If you want to step outside your comfort zone, have fun, get fit, and meet awesome people, you’re in the right place.
