The CrossFit Open

The CrossFit Qualifier Season officially starts next Tuesday, March 15, with the announcement of the first qualifier WOD. One WOD will be announced each consecutive Tuesday for a total of six weeks. Affiliates have until the Sunday after the WOD announcement to report athlete stats. This six-week qualifier is called The Open.

CFVB plans on hosting a qualifier competition each Saturday at 9 AM (starting March 19). Anyone from garage gyms, other affiliates and CrossFitters visiting the area are invited to complete their WOD here. We will create a competitive atmosphere, complete with counters and judges. Correct range of motion, number of reps, etc. will be strictly enforced!

The Open WOD that week will also be our workout of the day on Saturdays so that everyone can get a chance to experience the workouts. However, the 9 AM time slot is for registered competitors. Spectators and volunteers are welcome to cheer and help. Those of you with an L1 certification may be called upon to judge.

CFVB also plans on creating an affiliate team. In order to be eligible for the team, you must compete as an individual in the Open. The top individuals and teams from the Open will go to Regionals. The top Masters athletes from the Open will go directly to the Games.

Registration will open soon. The cost is $10. For details, visit: 


Happy birthday Neil and Marco!
