Week 5. It’s the final week of the 2017 CrossFit Open and man, have we had fun! We’re looking forward to kicking off our Superhero Night with the head to head throw down of Josh Wheeler & Chris McFarland. Both athletes will be performing the workout in full fire gear. If you missed out on this last year, trust me, you’ll want to make sure you’re at the gym by 6 pm to catch it this time. As always, please read below for some additional information that will help keep our night running smoothly (we hope).
- We’re going to mix things up a little bit this week & have our WOD briefing immediately following the head to head challenge. This is where we’ll go over all the movement standards along with the staging areas for where athletes will be doing the workout. Please do your best to be there for this portion (even if you don’t go until later) so we can avoid some of the chaos. The standards for the workout can also be found HERE on the CrossFit Games site.
- The logistics for this workout are a little dicey. We’ve got heats set up in 20 minute increments to try and keep things moving and get as many people in as possible. Please be prepared to waterfall in if we have some athletes going over the 20 minutes. We will cover this at the briefing as well.
- Please sign-up for your heat HERE. If you are unable to attend for some reason, please remove yourself from the roster so we can backfill your spot.
- As always, if you are unable to attend Friday Night Lights, please try to come in during one of the Friday Open Gym slots or on Saturday between 10 & 11 am. Athletes unable to come in during those times need to make arrangements with another athlete to ensure they will have a judge and check with a coach as classes will take priority on Monday.
Remember, you don’t have to be signed up for the Open to come join in the fun! We’ll be at the gym most of the evening so grab your friends, your family, and your favorite beverage and come cheer on your fellow 5 Alarm athletes. We hope to see all of you tomorrow night!
