2016 CrossFit Open…it’s coming soon!

Posted: January 14, 2016 in Uncategorized

The 2016 CrossFit Open is quickly approaching. It is the first step in a worldwide competition toward reaching the Reebok CrossFit Games and being crowned the “Fittest on Earth.”

Each week for 5 consecutive weeks beginning Thursday, February 25th, CrossFit HQ will release a workout. As we have done in years past, we will watch the announcement live at the gym at 7PM. Everyone is welcome!

We are looking forward to providing even more fun and excitement this year for the 2016 Open with our first ever FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

We’ll be hosting the Open workout each Friday night through the season as an electric, fun and energetic environment to be at your best. Each Friday the entire afternoon and evening class schedule will be blocked off for completing the Open WOD, judging, spectating, cheering and having a  really good time.

Please make every attempt to be a part of Friday Night Lights!

Friday, February 26th, March 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th

**We want to emphasize that these events will differ from taking a regular class. The gym will open up at 4pm on Fridays and the first heat will start at 430pm. We’ll start each heat with a movement standards demonstration and keep going with heats every 30 minutes until everyone gets their chance! So there won’t be scheduled classes with coaches but you can come be a part of the competition and complete the WOD. Afterwards we’ll likely be doing a restaurant take over or hanging out enjoying non-Paleo beverages! This is about having fun and making friends and pushing each other to do our best. Please make plans to be at the gym for longer than just your heat. Everyone that WODs could also be asked to judge another heat. There will not be enough coaches to judge everyone…we’ll need your help!

Heat sign ups will be available on the website each Friday on a first come first serve basis. If you cannot make Friday nights and still wish to participate in the Open, we will have an opportunity on Sundays as well. Check the schedule weekly for judging availability beyond Friday nights. Please let us know if you have special circumstances that prevent you from coming to those times.

Registration is not required to complete the WOD or take part in FNL, all members of CFJ are welcome to jump in an open heat each week; however, we encourage everyone to sign up, do the WOD, submit a score and see how you compare worldwide! We want everyone to feel the thrill of pushing themselves to the limit in competition. There is even a masters and scaled workout released each week! Register for the CrossFit Open at The CrossFit Games website beginning January 14th. Individual registration is $20 and then you can join the CrossFit Jackson affiliate and the CrossFit Jackson team!

We hope this Open season brings you great fulfillment for all the hard work you’ve put in this last year!

    Hey Jennie, will the Open WOD be the WOD of the day each Friday, like in the past? So that the morning classes have an opportunity to do it:)
