New York City is hosting its own version of the CrossFit Games in 2018. The annual event will take place from July 21st to July 28th.
The first stage of the competition is called the CrossFit Open. The CrossFit Open is an online competition that takes place in early February. It lasts for five weeks, and anyone can participate.The workouts are released online and participants have a week to complete each one.
After the week is over, they submit their score online through a website.
There are five workouts each week that you must complete and the workouts get progressively more difficult. The goal is to score as many reps as you can for each workout. Every rep you do gets added to your total “rep” score after the week is over. All the reps are worth a point, so even if you only get one rep, you still get one point.
There are no penalties for missing a workout, though you won’t receive any points if you don’t finish.
In 2018, workouts were announced on a Thursday and were due the following Thursday. In 2019, they will be announced on a Wednesday and due the following Wednesday.
There are three stages to the CrossFit Games competition:
Open: anyone can participate and there are no qualifying events. The fittest people move on to the next stage of competition. Online Competition: Starting in 2018, men compete on one day and women compete on another. Each gender has their own podium and their own winners.
They also have their own set of Workouts. The fittest competitors from the Open in each region, go on to the next stage and are eligible for a trip to the Games. Regional: The top 40 men and top 40 women from each region compete in four days of grueling competition to determine the fittest man and woman. They are decided by a combination of scores from events and the judges’ scores.
