3. The CrossFit Opens Atmosphere at Vagabond

The CrossFit Open is an amazing time to be a Vagabond! Here’s how it works!
  • You register to participate here (pick Vagabond as your affiliate): http://games.crossfit.com/affiliate/313
  • For 5 consecutive weeks from 2/25-3/28, CrossFit HQ releases a scaled and RX workout online on Thursday nights.
  • As a group, we do these workouts together starting at 9AM each Saturday (heats are released sometime Friday).
  • We place participants in heats that run very smoothly all morning long- you will be placed with similar-ability athletes from Lifestyle and Fitness phases.
  • You will never be forced or expected to perform a movement you are not comfortable with- everything can be scaled.
  • You enter your score online in your personal CrossFit Open profile and track your success.
The goal for the Open is to do this together and try to get a taste for competition and success, all the while in the familiarity and comfort of your own gym. You’ll experience new PRs, hit new successes and definitely challenge yourself. Who’s in??
