2018 CrossFit Open Intramural Team Challenge
This challenge is inclusive and OPEN to every athlete 15 years old and older. There are no prerequisites of any kind in regards of fitness level or strength. This is a great way to get an accurate measure of how your fitness improves from year to year. This is a free event for all participants, if you would like to officially pay and register for the CrossFit Open at https://games.crossfit.com/ you will be able to track your fitness from year to year as well as see where you rank among your age group, region, or in the world. The goal of this Challenge is to promote fun, collaborative competition.
The OPEN consists of 5 workouts, 1 each week, to be completed on Friday or Saturday. There are scaled and Rx versions of each workout. We would like to encourage everyone to attend our “Friday Night Lights” events every Friday from 5:00pm-7:00pm. This is a great time to test your fitness and cheer on your fellow Redstone Teammates in a super fun, positive community atmosphere.
***CrossFit Open WODs will be programmed for the daily WOD during regular class times on Friday’s, but will only be officially judged 5:00-7:00pm on Friday’s and 8:00-10:00am on Saturday’s.

She has decided to focus her time on other elements of her life, but is going to continue to coach her Saturday rotation as well as help judge the Open. Coach Hayden has recently received his CrossFit Level 1 certification and will now be coaching on Tuesday and Friday morning this week. Please speak with a coaching staff if you have any questions
