The 2017 Reebok Crossfit Open starts on Thursday February 23th, 2017. Just like last year, CFFW will host Friday Night Lights. Friday Night Lights is basically an open gym on Friday evenings to get together with your team and perform the Open workout of the week, hours are 3:30-7:30pm.
Although many CFFWers have already registered for the open, some of you still have reservations. I want to reassure you that this is ALL ABOUT FUN!!! The focus of the CFFW Open is to bond together as a community, push ourselves a little harder than we normally would, and have tons of fun. You will not hold your team back, it doesn’t matter if you’re not the best athlete in the gym (I’m not either!), there are plenty of ways to earn points for your team and a top score is only one of them (see point values below). This event is going to be a blast and if you don’t sign up you’re going to be very sad to be left out of all the festivities. We will not be doing costumes this year. We will do color wars instead. Each team captain will pick a team color and your team will wear the chosen color to Friday Night Lights.
Register here, and CHOOSE CFFW AS YOUR TEAM. (We cannot add you to the team, you must select your team from your athlete page.)
