16 Jan Friday Nights 2016! Compete in the CrossFit Open
It’s time for Friday Night Lights and the 2016 CrossFit Open!
Thanks to our friends from the Catalyst Gym last year we introduced “Friday Night Lights” to coincide with the CrossFit Open, a 5 week worldwide CrossFit competition where you get to test your fitness. There are Rx, scaled, and several Masters categories.
In 2015, we had close to 80 members who tried their hand at CrossFit “competition.” Why? Because it is a ton of a fun the way we do it. Everyone that did it loved it!
At PSKC we believe in working hard with great people to achieve breakthroughs. When you sign up to compete and join a team the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you find a higher gear.
Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? Yes, we did it last year and this year will be bigger and better. This is the one time of the year when we all get together at the same time, lay it all on the line and support the hell out of each other. It’s really hard to describe all the positive energy that is produced on those Friday evenings.
We do that through an intra-gym competition called Friday Night Lights. For everyone in the gym that signs up for the CrossFit Open, we take that number and break them down into 5 intramural teams.
Registration for the Open can be done at games.crossfit.com, and choose PSKC as your Affiliate.
Coaches and PSKC members will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team. Each team will be captained by a Coach. The draft will be random and we will ensure even distribution of our most competitive athletes. Every athlete registered for the Open will be drawn from a hat. Team Captains will rotate draws, and then notify the athletes of their team. We will have our first draft party on Friday, February 12th. So please be sure you’ve registered by then!
You score points for your team through participation, placement, and most importantly team spirit. More details on scoring to come.
16.1: Feb. 26
16.2: March 4
16.3: March 11
16.4 March 18
16.5 March 25
*If you can’t make the Friday evening time(s), just get with a coach to get that workout in.
We’ll have some random draws each week for prizes, including gear, supplements, and training packages. The top team will also earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!
Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives. Yes, you can do this. Trust us, you’ll regret it if you don’t. Where else can you dress like Ninja Turtles or a Dominatrix and workout?
Register online at the CrossFit Games site, and let’s start this party!
