CrossFit 45 North Intramural Open


CrossFit 45 North Intramural Open

The CrossFit 45 North Intramural Open is back!

It’s that time of year again where we put our fitness to the test with the CrossFit Open.  We are doing it big again this year with the annual CrossFit 45 North Open.  Keep reading for ALL of the details!!


The Basics

We are doing it big again in 2018 with our annual CrossFit 45 North Intramural Open!  If you are new, I am sure you are wondering, “What does this mean?”.  It means we will be doing the 5 programmed CrossFit Open workouts internally, alongside the entire CrossFit world.  Each Friday night we will host an awesome atmosphere of athletes, at all ability levels, showing off our functional fitness at its finest.

***Note – For this in-house competition, the main emphasis of points will be on participation-NOT performance!  If you are worried about “not being ready” – don’t be!  All that is required is that you show up, do work, have fun and cheer on your teammates.  As you will see in the rules below, all of the points will be awarded based on SPIRIT and PARTICIPATION!

Our goal is to make this a fun experience for everyone by bringing our community together, all while testing the hard work that we put in each week!

The Twist

The twist is that each person who is committed to the 45 North Intramural Open, will be on a team. If you participated last year, you will remain on the same team (Team Anarchy or Team Prancercizers). If you are new to the Open and want to participate, we will place you on one of the two teams!

If you want to participate, the cost to sign up will be $10 (cash ONLY please)  which should be given directly to a coach and they will place your name on the sign up sheet at the box.
