Its here! Are you excited, how about a little nervous? Will this be your first taste of competition, maybe its the test you have been training for all year. The only thing I can say is. Remember, this should be fun!
If this is your first Open since joining CrossFit Fuse, and your think this is not for you. I would urge you to give it a shot! The Open, for 99.5% of us, isn’t about qualifying for the CrossFit Games. It’s about coming together, competing with yourself, cheering, supporting, and inspiring OTHERS! Really its not about YOU. These Open workouts will challenge everyone, and expose everyone’s weaknesses. That’s okay, in fact, it’s a good thing. It may help you focus your training. Don’t make it out to be more than it is. It shouldn’t be a stressful.
For those of you who have competed before, dont worry about it! I know you want finish better than last year, lets get grounded here for a second, maybe just a little blunt. Your place in the Open doesn’t really matter. What matters is have you improved on over the course of the past year? Have your lifts improved? Can I give it may all for 8 min now? As CrossFit grows, the number of participants in the Open will grow. Athletes will be better. So, go into with excitement, a clear mind, and give it your all.
This will be my 4th Open. I’m excited to see what happens. Every year you can count on seeing someone do something they never thought they could do. The atmosphere is electric, adrenaline is in the air. If you are on the fence, give it a shot you won’t regret it!
