The CrossFit Open Is Upon Us…


It’s that time of year again! On January 15th (or anytime thereafter up until the end of February), visit the CrossFit Games Website to sign up on the CrossFit Annapolis team for this year’s CrossFit Open.  For all who do not know what the CrossFit Open is:

  • A five week worldwide competition.
  • 1 wod a week. You complete it at the gym, or send in a video of you performing it.
  • Everyone is ranked in the world.
  • The top 60 athletes and 30 teams are then invited to regional competition.
  • The top  3 finishers in regions go to the CrossFit Games in Carson, CA in July.

If you have done it before or not, just sign up and see how you do.  It will show you where you have improved, as well as, what weaknesses you need to work on.  For those that have competed in it before, leave some comments encouraging our new members  to participate.


  1. I strongly suggest everyone sign up and give this a try. You will never feel how far you can actually push yourself until you’ve participated in a competition like this. I never knew I had it in me to push beyond my limits until trying the Open last year. While most will never make it to regionals or The Games, it’s a great opportunity to challenge yourself and see where you rank with other CrossFitters around the world…you’ll be surprised. Also, it’s a great way to meet new people and share in the common pain/excitement/anticipation that is the CrossFit open!
