Lykos CrossFit Open 2016
What is the CrossFit Open?
The CrossFit Games Open is the world’s premier test of fitness. Since 2011, the five-week five-workout online competition has accurately ranked the fitness of thousands of competitors.
Competition helps inspire us to perform: 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.
The Lykos 2016 CrossFit Open
During the 2016 Open, we’re going to have four to six intramural teams competing. And you’re going to be on one of them.
We will be picking the captains, and no they are not the typical top of the leaderboard athletes. The Intramural teams don’t have names yet, but the captains will be ready for the draft and to lead your team to victory.
How to register…
Its easy, go to games.crossfit.com, and choose CrossFit Lykos as your Affiliate.
Coaches and the consistent top scoring member’s of the gym will be drafted onto teams first. We want to make sure that any one team doesn’t have an advantage.
Following the draft, every other athlete registered for the Open will be drawn from a hat. Team Captains will rotate draws, and then notify the athletes of their team. The ‘Draft Party’ will take place the week before the Open begins, on Thursday 2/18/16.
+1 POINT – Attendance: EACH member of a team that completes an Open workout earns one point PER WEEK. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 POINT– Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 for each workout gets an extra point for their team. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+5 POINTS – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points. There will be one team that wins these points each week.
+5 POINTS (bonus) – 6th workout: see below.
Athletes competing in the Open will have four days to complete each workout. Fridays will be OPEN wod day, and friday NIGHT will be set up like “friday night lights”. If you miss Friday, we also have Saturday and Sunday open gym. PLEASE COME AND CHEER EVERYONE ON. Friday nights = BEER. Bring friends, bring family, let’s have some fun with it.
The Open will have FIVE workouts; we have a BONUS tournament planned, which will take place on Saturday 4/2/16. This workout will be a team event and will count towards your overall score.
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 and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff.
