Today at 5pm, CrossFit will announce the first Open workout and as you all know, Fury will be participating as we begin the Road to the 2012 Games! It has been planned that a local affiliate will host an Open workout each week so our Sectional Saturdays will be a little different this year.

This year, instead of hosting Sectional Saturdays every weekend at Fury, we will only be hosting the final Open workout and coordinating it with our fundraiser, Pull 4 Dom on March 24th. For the first four workouts, we are encouraging our members to travel with us to the local affiliates and compete among Arizona’s Fittest.

So, the first thing you need to do, is register for the Open by Sunday night on the Games site. Whether you plan on competing for the Games, are in Basics searching for that extra competitive push, a member striving for excellence or simply want to take part in the first stage of the CrossFit Games- We would love for all of our members to register! Let us show the CrossFit community how well Fury comes together to participate and operate as a team.

Once you have registered, you will be able to sign up for any of the Open workouts at any of the local affiliates. The Games registration is only $20 and the local affiliate gatherings are FREE. Since we know not everyone can make every Saturday, we will have “make up Thursdays” as well as “by appointment makeups” throughout the week. Thursday make ups will be from 8:30-10:30am or 3-5pm. If you can’t make Thursdays, we will schedule by appointment workouts for groups of 3 or more.

This week we are kicking the Open off on Friday at CrossFit Scottsdale to participate in their Friday Night Lights Open. You can still register if you would like to participate or just come out and cheer us on! We will be open regular hours on Saturday for anyone who couldn’t make it to Scottsdale Friday night. Members will have the opportunity to participate in the Open workout and be judged on this Saturday only. The following weekends we will be heading to Urban Warfit, CrossFit 480, and Core CrossFit. On these weekends, we will continue to have track practice, our Free Basics Class and Prep. However, CrossFitters should plan to go to the local gathering or set up another time to be judged. We will not have enough trainers on staff Saturday to run classes and judge Open workouts.

The Open is upon us, excitement is in the air and Fury is just getting started so don’t miss out on what is sure to be an amazing competition season!
