CrossFitters, have you registered for the Open? Here’s why Coach Carissa participates.

Doing the Open is like voting. When you vote, you participate in a process that defines us as a country. When you do the Open, you participate in a process that defines our community. In our world, it doesn’t matter how tall you are, how old you are, how much money you have, what sports you used to play, or what your life is like. Everyone walks down the same stairs and starts with the same empty barbell.

During the Open, it doesn’t matter if you started yesterday or have won the CrossFit Games 3 times. Everyone starts with the same workout (16.1) and earns their spot on the leaderboard. Everyone will have some movements they like and some movements they don’t. Everyone will feel exhausted at some points and invincible at others.

It’s really kind of cool that you don’t need to be “elite” or receive some kind of special invitation in order to contend in our sport. I consider it a real privilege, and it’s the #1 reason that I participate in the Open every year. I hope you will too!
