Tom's doing the Open. Are you?

Message from TJ: 

Today is the day when the first workout of the CrossFit Open is announced.

I haven’t participated in the Open for years, but I’ve never missed a workout announcement. This event separates us from other fitness methodologies. It holds us accountable, it challenges us, it creates an emotional reaction in us.

Not many other physical events do that for an extended period of time. Races do. But just for the duration of the race. This sucker is five weeks! It’s empirically based. It has a pool of hundreds of thousands of people your exact age, height, and weight to whom you can compare yourself. That’s an amazing opportunity, and it's never existed before in the arena of fitness.

Some of you could care less about the Open, and that’s OK, too. It’s just something else that makes us different in a good way. We will always announce events that might inspire you to engage with our community, because it’s a good thing to do and is part of our overall vision--helping people be better any way we can.



P.S. Be sure to email to set up a 15-minute goal-setting session with me any time!
