15 Thrusters (115#/75#)

Maybe you’ve heard a few of us talk about this…. What is it? And how do you become involved?
The Open (February 22 – March 25)

The Open is a worldwide competition consisting of five workouts over five weeks. Last year, more than 26,000 athletes competed, and this year will likely be a multiple of that!
Each week, the workout will be announced on Wednesday at 5 p.m. PT (starting February 22). Everyone will have until the following Sunday at 5 p.m. PT to complete that week’s workout and submit their score. You can do the workout at your local affiliate or film your attempt from any gym, a garage, or park.
Once you submit your workouts to the Games site, you’ll be able to find your rank, both worldwide and in your region. You get one point for each place (i.e. five points for 5th place) for each workout. Your overall score is the sum of all the workout scores, and lowest total points wins. You can compete both as an Individual and on a Team. Individuals are divided between men and women, and Masters are divided by gender and age.
The individual athletes and teams that perform the best across the five Open workouts, in each of the 17 regions, will be invited to compete at the second stage of the Games, the Regionals. The top 20 Masters in each age and gender category will earn an automatic spot at the Games in July.
We will be a hosting facility and it’s gonna be a blast!! We had 15 members compete last year and we’re shooting to double that number this year!!
So mark your calendars – ‘THE OPEN’ begins on February 22nd…….

  1. No teams for the Open but I believe our cumulative gym points that we earn from each individual competitor will help us to qualify a team. :)
