Why do we do an in house comp for the CrossFit Open? Because I believe we have the best damn community around. I love having our members compete against one another for fun, some prizes, but mostly to keep understanding that this fitness thing is FUN!
If you are looking to meet some new people, or just have fun doing some hard workouts and get encouraged by your peers to find the best version of yourself for the next 5 weeks, this is the perfect place to do it.
Although it is a competition, it is much more about pushing your own envelope and competing with those ideas of yourself that aren’t true. Like “i can’t do that may pull ups. Or that Rx weight is way to heavy.”
Over the past 7 years I have seen people do all sorts of their firsts in this environment, and I promise you after you have that feeling of “wow I can do that.” You start to wonder what else you are capable of. And the more you knock down those barriers, the more you realize you are a great athlete capable of about anything. Your body is a vehicle to some fun stuff in this world, and if you are in doubt about how to get there, maybe the CFLD Intramurals is a great place to start.
