Welcome to CrossFit Tradition’s IM open!
Our goal at Crossfit Tradition is to help you reach a new level of health, physically, emotionally and socially! Competition can sometimes feel scary or intimidating, this year we are adding a new twist on the CrossFit open to make it fun, inclusive and give it a new team camaraderie element!
Every year, CrossFit HQ runs a five-week event called “The CrossFit Open“. an exercise against 400,000 other people worldwide. We ARE interested in helping you push to new levels in fitness, but without causing anxiety attacks or injuries :).
The Intramural Open will be an annual tradition at CFT.
We’ll divide you up into three or four teams, each with a Team Captain and a fun name and team color.
You can earn points for your team by participating, placing top 3 in an event (ranked among your fellow CFT gym mates) and showing the most spirit during Friday Night Lights.
You can register at the gym in person by telling a coach “I’m in for the IMO!” or by writing your name on the black board. You can also sign up for the Official CrossFit Open for $20 at the CrossFit Games Site to check your rank worldwide (Not required to participate in the CFT IMO).
