As you may know, the CrossFit Open starts this week! This will be the 9th year that anyone on the planet can make a bid to qualify for the CrossFit Games. It’s 5 weeks of mentally and physically challenging workouts, and it’s a great chance to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. Workouts will be released on Thursday evenings, and you will have until Monday evening to submit video of your workouts.
Some of you may have noticed that CrossFit 314 is not an option when you’re registering. This is something that Rob and I have discussed for a couple of years now. In the 10+ years that I have done CrossFit, it has gone from an underground movement to an institution. We are incredibly proud to be part of that journey. However, our main focus is our clients and friends. You. All of you. We’re not concerned with putting on major international events or fighting political battles. Our goal is to give you the best training and programming that we can. To support you in whatever your fitness goals may be.
To that end, we will be transitioning to 314 Strength and Conditioning. Nothing else will change. Just the name on the door. If anyone would like to have a longer conversation about this, please feel free to contact me or Rob.
Just a little dose of motivation for you on this icy Sunday.
We had an AMAZING time at the 314 In-house Competition! You all put in a TON of work (especially on workout #2, right?!?) I hope you all had a great time. Not to mention the incredible Karaoke Party to top off the night!! It was a full day of fun and fitness with friends!
Final scores are still being tallied, but stay tuned to find out the winners of the competition!
I know you’ve all been anxiously awaiting more workout releases. Well, here is Workout #2:
Teams of 7: Row 10k
Buy-In: 10 Box Jumps, 20 WB Situps, 50 DU or 100 Singles
Athlete #1 will start with the buy-in. After the jump rope, athlete 1 will start the row, and athlete 2 will start the buy-in. Once athlete 2 completes the jump rope, they will take over the row, and athlete 1 will complete a 400m run before getting back in line. Workout will continue follow the leader style until the rower completes 10,000m.
