What is the difference?
Online Open $20: This is a global online competition that allows competitors to compete and qualify for the CrossFit Games. Along with the competition, you can create your own custom leaderboard and compete with other friends that belong to other CrossFit gyms nearby, out of town, compare certain male/female athletes based on age, career, state, or country.
In House Open $25: This is a community building 5 week competition where we will compete against other members at the gym based on male/female and Rx/scaled divisions. You will also be eligible to win 5 prizes (one including a pair of shoes) and a t-shirt/tank. In order to be eligible you have to complete all 5 workouts.
Each Friday for all classes the next 5 weeks we will perform the CrossFit Open workouts. Below will be the format for each class on Friday’s.
First 10mins: Go over WOD movement standards
10-25mins: Perform suggested warm up on your own
25-60mins: Perform WOD in two heats, (judging required)
The Open brings a lot of fun challenges for the athletes and coaches. Be prepared for the uncontrollables such as required movements, number of heats, or length of the workout.
Every Thursday evening at 7 PM the WOD will be announced live on the CrossFit Games website. Once we know what the WOD is, we will post it on the zen planner and will have everything organized and ready to go for the classes on Friday.
I know you already do this, but as a reminder come to class with a positive attitude, work hard, encourage others, and view that workouts as an opportunity to get better.
Keep up the great training.
In the beginning Justin and Trevor met at a large global gym in 2012. Justin was on his journey to improve his health and fitness while Trevor was a personal trainer. Along the way, Trevor and Justin became friends and decided to go into business and start a CrossFit gym in Elkhorn/Omaha area in March 2014. Starting CrossFit Elkhorn took a lot of time and effort and it is a decision that we will never regret.
Every year in January we get together to celebrate the last 12 months. This event is called the WODIE Awards. We meet as a community, eat food, have drinks, and hand out awards to members that have had a major impact not only on themselves but also in the community.
This years WODIE Awards is very special to the CFE staff because we are celebrating our 5th year in business. Over the past 5 years we have helped multiple people become stronger, faster, leaner, more educated, fitter, and overall just better people.
