Kevin was recently diagnosed with an aggressive and life threatening form of cancer and He has now gone into the beginning of stage 4 cancer.

CrossFit Beyond Open Workouts Information
The CrossFit Opens officially begin on February 23rd, and we will be doing the workouts each Friday. The workouts are released online each Thursday. There will be a lot of fun and excitement happening in those 5 weeks so don't miss out! Whether you signed up to participate online, or for our in-house competition, or both, or you simply just want to try it out for fun! Join us on Fridays!
If you registered online through crossfit.com to participate in the opens you must be judged by one of our members who has taken the judges course and you must submit your scores online by 8pm on the Monday following the release of each workout.
CrossFit Beyond Intramural- In House Competition
We are also holding an Intramural Team In House Competition, and while it is recommended that you have signed up for the open online, it is not required to participate in our in-house competition. The details for this in house competition are below. It's a lot of fun!
The Intramural Opens is a "in-house competition" during the opens.
Basically you and your team (total of 3) will do the open workouts each week and earn points. Now the competition part is determined by how you do in the workout and when you workout. There are 4 categories to which you can earn points:
1-Doing the Workout
2- Doing the Workout Along with your team (at least 2 of the 3 must be present, this doesn't mean you have to be working out, another member could simply be cheering the others on)
3-Having a member who is in the top three for scaled in the gym (Men and Women)
-4Having a member who is in the top 3 for RX in the gym (Men and Women). So the Max number of points a team can earn each week is 9 points (everyone did the WOD, everyone did it together, and all three were in either top scaled and/or top RX).
Each team can pick a team name and can earn 2 additional points by wearing a team uniform (shirts, costumes, color schemes etc) while working out together (these 2 points can only be earned once not weekly).
Each week we will post the standings. The winning team wins a bunch of prizes!
