March is the month of the CrossFit Open, an exciting time for CrossFit enthusiasts like me.
What’s the CrossFit Open? From March 6th-April 7th t138,000 people—including 25,000 Masters—will be competing in the CrossFit Open. During the Open, a new workout is released online each week and athletes have some days to complete the workout and submit their scores online. You can either take part at a CrossFit affiliate or submit a video of your workout. After the Open, top performers advance to regional events, including 12 such events in North America.
