At CrossFit Evolving fewer than 10% of our members have participated in the competition side of CrossFit; however during the CrossFit Open each year more than 20% of our members take part. Not a single one has a realistic chance of qualifying for the CrossFit Games but that doesn’t stop us encouraging every single sign up. Why?
The CrossFit Open can help you define your current fitness baseline across all areas. It’s a measurable marker of your level of aerobic capacity, strength and gymnastic skill and therefore a great starting point for setting training goals.
The CrossFit Open is a global event and encourages a little meaningful connection between fellow CrossFitting friends even when they are the other side of the planet. We love the community spirit that the CrossFit Open brings, the cheering, the camaraderie are fantastic and the fact that this spreads outside of the box makes it all the more special.
You push yourself that little further and occasionally a PB or first comes off. Post baby number 2 I was delighted to see the return of my Toes to Bar ability in 2016. Every year we see first pull ups, first muscle ups and plenty of weightlifting PBs. It really is magic.
