The Open – Part 3
Since we will be doing Friday Night Lights for the Open this year, the evening schedules will be a little different on Friday Night. Instead of offering the typical Crossfit class times at 5pm and 6pm, we will instead cancel those classes and run heats of the Open workouts. The morning classes and the 4:30 Quickfit Class will not be affected. What this means for the evening classes:
You will need to sign up for a heat for your open workout. Depending on what the workout is, what equipment is needed, and the length of the workout, we will have heats every 10-30 minutes with as many as 6 athletes or as few as 2 athletes working at a time.
Once the workout descriptions are released, an updated schedule will be posted in Wodify and you will need to reserve your workout time there. If you do not reserve a heat in Wodify we cannot guarantee a space for you to workout at your desired time. So make sure you know your log-in information, have all of your waivers signed, and reserve your heat time on Thursday evening or Friday morning.
You will need to show up early and warm up yourself. If you sign up for the 5:30 heat, that means you are on the floor working out at 5:30. Do not show up at 5:25 and expect for us to put you through a warmup and get you ready for the workout. Due to the number of people and the space requirements at the gym, the heats will run on time with or without you. Afterwards, stick around and help judge or cheer people on!
Everyone at Friday Night Lights will have a judge to count your reps and change your weights (if needed). If you signed up for the Open, we will ensure that your judge is certified (https://oc.crossfit.com/) so that your score is valid. If you did not sign up for the Open, you will still have a judge, albeit, not necessarily one that has passed the course.
Morning people: Nothing changes for you!! We will be doing the Open workouts as your class workout for the day regardless of whether you signed up for the Open or not. If you did sign up for the Open, we will work with you to make sure you have a judge to validate your scores during the class time you attend.
All members: If you have no idea what the Open is and are really confused, talk to a coach or a veteran member, or see Part 1 of this blog post.
