1. YOU WILL LIKELY REGRET IT IF YOU DON’T. EVERY YEAR WE HAVE PEOPLE ASK IF IT’S TOO LATE TO SIGN UP… THE DAY AFTER REGISTRATION CLOSES. YOU WILL DO THE SAME WORKOUTS ANYWAYS, BUT THEIR IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DOING THE WORKOUTS AND ACTUALLY PUTTING YOURSELF OUT THERE TO SEE WHAT YOU HAVE.
2. IT’S FUN! THERE IS NOTHING QUITE LIKE THE ENERGY IN THE GYM DURING FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS AT CROSSFIT WYLIE. EVERYONE STEPS UP IT UP. EVERYONE CHEERS EACH OTHER ON. THERE IS ALWAYS TALK OF STRATEGIES FOR TACKLING A WORKOUT. EVERYONE IS IMPATIENT TO SEE THE THURSDAY NIGHT ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE NEXT WORKOUT. PLUS, THERE IS ALWAYS FRIENDLY COMPETITION AMONGST FRIENDS.
3. YOU GET TO BE A PART OF THE WORLDWIDE CROSSFIT COMMUNITY. DURING THE OPEN, CROSSFITTERS FROM EVERY NATION AND CONTINENT ARE ALL PERFORMING THE SAME WORKOUTS. DURING THE OPEN YOU REALIZE THAT ALTHOUGH YOU WORKOUT AT CROSSFIT WYLIE, THERE IS A WORLDWIDE COMMUNITY OF MORE THAN 13,000 CROSSFIT AFFILIATES WHERE PEOPLE ARE PERSEVERING THROUGH THE SAME WORKOUTS AS YOU. LET’S FACE IT, CROSSFIT OFFERS US FITNESS, BUT ALSO COMMUNITY. UNLIKE A TRADITIONAL GYM, WE ARE HERE FOR EACH OTHER TO CHEER ONE ANOTHER ON AND CELEBRATE OUR SUCCESSES TOGETHER.
So, at only $20, there really is no reason not to sign up for the Open. Registration starts Thursday, January 12, and the first workout, 17.1, will be announced on February 23. Sign up and participate!
At CrossFit Wylie we will use the Open to celebrate our local community, as well as the CrossFit community as a whole, and we will have fun throughout the five weeks. If you are not yet signed up for CrossFit, there is still time to join us at CrossFit Wylie, learn your fundamentals, and participate in this year’s Open.
