Intramural Open, Starts 2/22

The CrossFit Open is the start of the road to the CrossFit Games. It is a worldwide CrossFit competition, consisting of five workouts over five weeks. We do it every year. It’s fun.

Our goals at CFB: to educate and to inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring.

Can we bring that worldwide thrill of the CrossFit Games home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so.

In 2018, we’re still going head-to-head with athletes from around the world. But this Open, we’re going to bring the competition within CFB too, with four intramural teams competing against each other. And you’re going to be on one of them.

The CrossFit Bloomfield Intramural Open is for everyone. No matter your age, fitness or experience level, you can participate!
The Four Intramural team captains and co-captains have been chosen.

Team #1: Andy Reed + Joan Booker
Team #2: Gloria Shlanger Nowicki + Kevin Adelson
Team #3: Georgi Petrov + Hannah McPeak
Team #4: Erica Breakey + Ken Kayser

Captains will come up with a team name and will be driving the team spirit! Think posters, team colors, costumes and so much excitement! A Facebook group will be created for each team to coordinate.

REGISTRATION
Registration for the Open has already begun. Sign up at games.crossfit.com, and choose CrossFit Bloomfield as your Affiliate. You don’t have to sign up for the online to participate in the Intramural, but we highly recommend spending the $20 to do so. You will represent CFB on the global scale and we guarantee that it will make you feel more invested and committed in the fun!
Make sure you sign up online and on the sign-up sheet at CFB before February 1 so you can be drafted to a team.

DRAFT
You will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team. We want to ensure even distribution of levels of experience to keep it fair. How you score in the Intramural won’t affect your individual result in the CrossFit Open and everyone’s points will still count toward our Affiliate score worldwide.

It doesn’t matter if you are going to do the Open workouts RX or scaled. Everyone who shows up on a Saturday will be doing the Open workout, with weights and movements scaled to their level.
Teams will be decided on February 1, three weeks before the start of the Open. It doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran CrossFitter or a beginner, make sure you sign up and be a part of what makes the CFB community great.

POINTS
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at CFB each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout.
+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 RX and the Top 3 scaled at CFB for each workout gets an extra point for their team. Based on the number of sign-ups, we will likely be adding a masters division to our scoring too!

WORKOUTS
In 2018, athletes competing in the Open will have only four days to complete each workout.
The dates are:
18.1: Feb. 22 – 26
18.2: March 1 – 5
18.3: March 8 – 12
18.4: March 15 – 19
18.5: March 22 – 26

Workouts are announced each Thursday night and will be performed as ‘Saturday’s Main Event’ from 9am-11am or so. It’ll be a great atmosphere, we’ll run the workout in heats and cheer on our team members. Try to coordinate so that you can all WOD together! There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush that accompanies a CrossFit competition with your buddies. If you absolutely can’t make it in on Saturday morning, do it Friday, Sunday or Monday (morning).

Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff.
