Ready for a challenge? You bet your sweet cheeks we are! Buckle up you misfits and mavens – the 2023 NOBULL CrossFit Open is upon us.
WHAT IT IS
Your time to bring out your best. The CrossFit Open gives athletes of all ages, body types and ability a chance to challenge themselves over a three-week period, starting Thursday, February 16, 2023.
From first-timers to seasoned competitors, athletes across 13,000+ affiliates from around the world show up to compete against themselves and each other on a global stage.
Over these three weeks, you’ll be challenged to bring your best and leave it all on the floor in a series of shared workouts.
The Open is for everyone welcoming all ages and levels of fitness to join in on the trials and triumphs paired with camaraderie, hype and ultimately fun!
YOU IN? SIGN-UP
Register online at games.crossfit.com – the process takes 5 minutes and costs $20. Choose your path (RX, Scaled, Foundations or Adaptive) and be sure to select Rhapsody CrossFit as your home gym.
Your registration will grant you access to the mobile app and custom leaderboard with new features including the ability to download a scorecard or throw down on video.
RUMBLE AT RHAPSODY – TEAM EVENT
Starting on Friday, February 17, each Rhapsody Fitness class will create its own team to compete over the following 3 weeks. Each Team Rhapsody coach will be captaining a different class time and you have the option to join any team on the schedule! We will run The Open workout in class every Friday and if you’re signed up, we will record your participation and score for your team’s overall average each week.
To sign-up for your class team, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/jsVw7YF2cMVto7uK6
If you participate in class or at Rally at Rhapsody, you will earn 100% participation and 2 points for your team. If you decide to perform it at Open Gym or outside of class you’ll earn 50% participation and 1 point for your team.
Each individual’s workout for the week will be averaged with their teammates and it does not matter whether you are doing the RX or Scaled workout. All scores are equal, you just gotta send it!
Both the participation points and overall team average will be combined to create your team’s score.
Highest team score wins!
RALLY AT RHAPSODY – FRIDAYS 5PM-7PM
Trust the Rhapsody Fitness community will show up in spades to go full send, cheer each other on and throw down!
Although this is a competition, The Open is more about camaraderie. Come for the challenge and stay for the shared stories, wins and fun. If you decide you’d like to do the workout at Rally at Rhapsody, your participation and score will count towards your class team!
