It’s been almost a year already. The CF Open is just around the corner. For those of you that don’t know what the CF Open is, it is the first qualifer to find the fittest on earth. In 2011, 26,000 athletes signed up to compete in the “Open”. In 2012-2015, participation was 69,000, 138,000, 209,000, and 273,000 respectively. This year is expected to have even more participation. Last year out of 273,000 participants only .00001 percent made it to the CF Games. That equals 40 Males and 40 Females out of the 273,000 participants. So what’s in it for you? You can test your fitness against the rest of the world. See how your hard work over the past year has paid off. If you participated last year you can see how much you improved, if you didn’t participate, you can see where you stand against the rest of the world. There are a few divisions for you to compete in. RX and Scaled, Male and Female, Affiliate Team, Teen 14-15 & 16-17 as well as older (wiser) age divisions starting at 40 and going all the way to 60+. Why sign up and compete? Community. The Open is great team building experience. The energy last year was the best we ever had. Be apart of your community, cheer on everyone else in the gym the loudest you can. I guarentee you will PR at something. Last year we had multiple PR’s in all 5 workouts. You will set goals for next years Open and it will make you work harder throughout the year.

After you register, I also recommend you complete the online judges course. Why? 1) So you know the standards of movements ahead of time and what is expected of you. These standards are nothing different than what we do everyday, but it does help make you become more aware. 2) So you can help judge other peers. This will help us cycle through the heats faster. If we only have a couple judges and 40 participants it will take all day.
The judges course needs to be taken. You do not need to do it all in one sitting. It will save your progress. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!! IT TAKES A COUPLE HOURS AND CAN BE TRICKY!!
