Wednesday the 25th @ 11:59pm is the cutoff date for CrossFit Hud Intramural Open sign up. Sign up using the link above.
As you’ve heard us already say, the CrossFit Open is a great opportunity to not only test ourselves and all the hard work we’ve done but also to get together as a community to have a great time. That is why this year we’ve adopted an intramural type competition at Hud to go with CrossFit Open.
The Intramural Open will have four teams. Four team captains have been selected from the currently registered members. Those team Captains are Chuck Hitchcock, Tammy Dominowski, Kurt Keppel, and Julie Cook! Team names are yet to be determined.
A draft will take place Monday (02/23/15) night in order to randomly place the remaining people onto the teams. After the draft, team captains may recruit anyone else they want in the gym to sign up for the open.
0.5 points will be awarded for every non-gym member spectator that shows up to the events.
1 point will be awarded to every team member that completes an open workout.
3 points are awarded to the team members that place in the top 5 for women and top 5 for men
5 points are awarded to the team determined to have the “Spirit of the Open” each week. (Themes, Costumes, overall enthusiasm… etc)
Those that can’t make Friday nights have opportunities during the day Friday to do the work out (it will be the WOD) and open gym times on Saturday and Sunday only. Points for competition of the WOD are still awarded accordingly. Those who are up for it may do the Open WOD multiple times, highest score will be recorded.
There will be a 6th Surprise Event as an opportunity to earn more points.
Be on the look out for heat sign ups

What is it?
The CrossFit Games stand alone as the ultimate test of fitness. No test, regardless of its lofty claims, can grant legitimate title to the best without first providing access to all. The 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games season begins with the online Open. Anyone can sign up to compete in five workouts over five weeks and post their scores online. Last year, the Open reached more than 209,000 athletes from around the world.
Every Friday people will get together at CrossFit Hud to complete the workouts and cheer people on. Afterwards we’ll have some beers and celebrate the days work.
This year there will be a scaled division which means there will be the option for everyone to participate no matter your fitness level.
Every year people surprise themselves by performing movements they thought previously unattainable. All the hard work you have been putting forward can finally show. I promise if you sign up and push hard every Open WOD, the results will truly surprise you and you will hold your head high and be proud of yourself.
This is a great opportunity for us to come together once a week as a community, cheer each other on through the workouts, fist bump, and celebrate how far we have all come in our fitness journey.
The CrossFit Open is more than just a competition; it’s a celebration of our fitness. Don´t think about this as a competition that you have to win, but rather think of it like a marathon. Lots of people sign up for marathons not to win it, but to complete it and feel good about how hard they have trained and how much they have accomplished. This is what the CrossFit Open does for us in the sport of fitness.
