New Open Prep Class

Hey everyone,

I wanted to write a post on the Crossfit open and what it’s all about, since it is getting close and because we have some special stuff in store for it this year.

The open is the first stage of the Crossfit games. The open takes place over 5 weeks starting at the end of February.

How it works:

Crossfit releases 1 workout each week on Thursday nights. You then have until Monday evening to complete that workout at your affiliate and submit your score. When you submit your score, you can see how you stack up in your gym, city, province, country, and the world.


The Crossfit open is for everyone. When I say everyone, I mean anyone can! Whatever level you are at, the open is truly for everyone and is tons of fun! The Crossfit open has many divisions: RX, Scaled, Teens, and Masters. The teens and masters have different age categories.

The open at Pure Athletics:

We love the open! It is a great way for the community to come together, celebrate, and push each other in each workout.

We will host the open every Friday night and Saturday morning. At this time, everyone who is taking part in the open will come to one of these times and hit the WOD together! It is a blast, so make sure you sign up.

New this year at PURE:

This year leading up to the open, we want everyone to come excited and know what to expect. So this year we will be having an OPEN PREP class once a week starting January. This class will be held at the time of the accessory skill class. So for the time being, this class will no longer be in the schedule. It will now be an OPEN PREP class. The first class will begin Jauuary.5th 2017.

This class will always be on Thursdays from 6-7pm.

This class will focus on areas we regularly see in the open each year. This will include skill-work on certain movements, as well as, hitting past open workouts and open-type workouts to prepare you. You will also be focusing a lot on proper movement and full range of movement.

We are very excited for the 2017 Crossfit open! Hopefully, everyone at PURE will take part and celebrate our community all together!
