Rob S: The opens give us a chance to compete, compare and see how far we have come as an individual athlete. They test you both mentally and physically, they set the stage for a great community of people to gather and test their fitness while having fun. Plus, it's cool to see how you stack up against the rest of the world, even you are not a competitor.
Ryan: We all started crossfit for one reason or another, then our first Open came around. Whether we were nervous or excited, a transformation happened inside of all of us after those 5 weeks. We saw how far we have come, or we decided to set new goals to smash. We may have underperformed or set new PRs. Either way, we all became part of something bigger, a part of a community that we take pride in.
Anita: I think you should do it for YOU!! This is a special way to test/ evaluate and see where you are and where you can go. This is an all inclusive worldwide competition that is like no other.
-Do it so you can see how you how you have changed from last year.
-Do it so you can see where you are this year and give yourself a goal for the following year.
-Do it for the mental challenge of being under pressure and needing to push yourself more than you think you can.
-Do it for the experience to compete next to the people you workout with everyday.
-Do it for fun!!!!
And as "Nike" says it.... "Just do it"!!!!
