The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition. We do it every year in teams. Last year, over 30 Bellum family members tried their hand at CrossFit “competition.” This year, we would love to get 100% participation. Whether it’s your first month at Bellum, or going on your third year, you CAN participate.

Our goal at Bellum is to educate and inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring.

Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so. There will be four Intramural teams. Teams will be able to earn points for attendance, performance, and spirit. This really is for EVERYONE!

Starting February 25th, you will complete one workout a week. You must attend on Saturdays to complete the workouts. There will only be make-ups for emergencies, or for those of you with work conflicts. The top four check-in winners for the month of January will be the TEAM CAPTAINS!

Scoring will go as follows:

+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes the Open workout at Bellum each Saturday. Maximum one point per athlete per workout.

+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at Bellum for each workout gets an extra point for their team.

+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.

Registration for the Open can be done here. Chose BSC CrossFit as your Affiliate. You will log your scores here each week. Next year, if the same workout comes up, you can look back at your old scores to see how much you have improved. Once you’ve officially registered, put a star next to your name on the board. This will indicate we can put you on a team.

Let’s go warriors!
