February 22 - March 25 The 2012 CrossFit Games Open Qualifiers!  Each week, for 5 weeks, we will ALL be doing the Open WOD, putting our times up against the world!  CrossFit Flagstaff is competing and we want as many of you as possible competing for our team, so please register before the 22nd.  Register for the Open here.

Remember:  EVERYONE can compete in the Open and last year MANY of our CrossFitters did.  As a result, we saw a TON of breakthroughs on what people could lift, how high they could jump, the fact that they could do full pushups even though they thought they couldn't, etc etc, the list goes on.  Competition pushes away the impossible and shows you what IS possible.  SIGN UP!  Be part of our team!

Three Goals for the Open: CrossFit Goodland  -"Everyone in the gym is going to do all of the Open Workouts," CrossFit Goodland owner Nick Conn says. "I'm really just hoping to use [the Open] as a learning experience."   That is a direct echo of CrossFit Flagstaff.



Here is some information about the format of the Open....


"There are some big changes to the team competition," Dave Castro says. Here, Castro explains the changes from 2011 to 2012 in the format of the Open and team competition. 
CrossFit Flagstaff Schedule for the Open:
The workouts will be announced each Wednesday evening at 5:00 p.m.
The WOD for the first week will be on Thursday the 23rd, so Make-Up Day will be Wednesday this coming week.  You may do the workout on Thursday at any class time, and you can re-do it if you wish on Sunday Make-Up Day by submission cut-off 5:00 p.m.
Every week thereafter it will be on Friday as the WOD.  We are going to have a big workout event every Friday at the 5:00 class and we invite all who can attend to come and workout together and we'll run it in a bunch of heats with judges for everyone.  If you can't make that 5:00 class, you may come to any class throughout that day, and you'll have Sunday to make it up as well. 
If you ABSOLUTELY can't make Friday or Sunday classes and MUST do it another time, you can also do it on Thursday Make-Up days after it's announced Wednesday night, or arrange a time with a trainer for Saturday.
Oh, and by the way, we need to get our numbers up on our team because...

The 2012 CrossFit Games Open has yet to begin, but the competition for the largest team worldwide is on!

As of Wednesday, February 15, CrossFit NYC is still in the lead with 280 athletes registered. CrossFit Enhance follows with 217.

With just one week remaining, we’ll surely see shifts in these numbers. The stakes are larger than ever.

The largest team as of 5 p.m., PT on February 26 will be awarded with as many tickets to the 2012 CrossFit Games as registered athletes, and their affiliate fee will be waived for life.
