Please note that in observance of Martin Luther King day we will have a modified schedule.
In case you were unaware, the CrossFit Open is starting in about 1 month. The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is the largest fitness competition on Earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. Here, athletes like you, from all around the world, show up and push themselves further than they ever thought possible over a five-week period. Challenges, PRs and the unknown await. Are you ready?
People of all ages and ability levels can play, Rx’d or Scaled. Use hashtags to compare with friends or people like you.
Participate at any of the 15,000+ CrossFit® affiliatesworldwide or in any gym, garage, park or flat space where you can bring your gear and a camera. We will be hosting the workouts every Saturday at Amity from February 23rd to March 23rd.
To make it fun, we will divide all participants into 3 teams. Each week, each person can score points for their team by competing, judging, or bringing snacks. You do not have to be one of the fittest members of the gym to score points for your team, this is all inclusive and meant to be fun.
