In a previous email we encouraged all of you to sign up for the 2018 CrossFit Open. This is a 5 week online competition where everyone will perform the same workout (in their division) along with hundreds of thousands in the world! A fun way to test your fitness. Set a goal. Go crush it! No matter if your goal is to complete all 5 workouts, get your first pull-up, finish in the top 50%, or finish in the top 20…This is a great opportunity for us to test our fitness and come together as a community. Visit The CrossFit Games website for more details and to register.
In conjunction with the Open, Three Kings Athletics will be hosting our Intramural Open which allows members to have some friendly competition amongst each other. You will be doing the same workouts as the CrossFit Open only entering them in our leader board as well. Our sponsors will be providing prizes for grand champions in each age division. In addition, we will be awarding a weekly SPIRIT OF THE OPEN award to one member each week that exemplify perseverance, determination, and resiliency.
We have 3 age divisions which feature Rx and scaled options so that everyone can participate. The 3 age divisions are: 18-39, 40-54, and 55+
Team combo options are as follows:
Rx division means you will be doing the workouts as prescribed (Rx) throughout the CrossFit Open season. Scaled division means you will be doing the workouts scaled as prescribed in that division throughout the Open. So what is the difference between Rx and Scaled? That depends on the workouts but in the past they’ve often scaled double-unders with single-unders, jumping chest to bar pull ups sub’ed for chest to bar, and potentially lighter weight loads.
For the competition you’ll have the following guidelines:
We’ll be checking birth certificates…kidding! To really test your fitness, feel free to do all the workouts as many times as you’d like. However, only the one which coincides with the division you signed up will be counted.

Please note you will be signing up for a heat within a class. Meaning, you are required to be here at 10 am if you plan on participating in a heat at 10:15 or 10:40. It takes a community to pull these logistics off so we’ll need you to then stay and judge the person who judged you at 10:15 during the 10:40 time slot. Consider this when selecting your time slot.
Please review the workout movement standards prior to doing the workout. These can be found at www.games.crossfit.com
To sign up for a heat simply open the google doc below and place your name in any green open space. Once your name is listed the space will turn red signifying you have reserved your spot.
