The Open is upon us.

In less than two weeks our sport’s season begins. We have been working very hard for this and I have high expectations for Team Full Bore this year.
For those of you going through your first Open, enjoy! For five weeks we will be doing a workout determined by CrossFit HQ alongside almost 100,000 other fire-breathers worldwide. The program will look slightly different while “in-season” as we are gearing up for a 100% effort workout every Friday.
For those of you on the fence about competing, I highly encourage you to sign-up. It is only $20, you get to see how you stack up against the global CrossFit community, you will be doing the workouts regardless, you have been working for these five workouts for months now, and it is a great way of tracking your progress from year to year.
For those of you competing, this is the tell-all. No more will that Wall Ball that wasn’t quite high enough be counted. No longer will you be able to count those failed reps on your DUs as completed reps. If you have been laying on my leg, the Open will expose it.
The Open may also awaken the fire-breather in some of you. Being pushed by a global community with a gym full of people around you cheering you on, the primal desire to conquer may take hold. The Open is the great equalizer. Hard work will pay off while malaise will exposed. Enjoy it, my friends.
