The CrossFit Games Open WOD’s for 2013 have come to a close. Reflecting back upon the last 5 weeks brings me great joy. We had 30 athletes that chose to participate in the open wods. Some of them were excited and some of them I peer pressured into doing them. I hope everyone who participated had a positive experience. I can’t even begin to express how exciting it was to watch people do things they could not do before the open and move weight they didn’t think they could move. The open is a chance for CrossFit athletes around the world to rank themselves, using specific standards, against athletes around the globe. Some of the wods brought disappointment in our scores, but that is to be expected. What I came away from this experience with, is the desire to push my hardest every time, every wod and stick to the standards. I will treat everyday like I am being judged for my form and push to do the movements I am able to do even if I am slow. That is how we become stronger. Next year I hope we have 100 athletes participating in the Open wods. All ARMS athletes, your coaches and I are very proud of you and your eagerness to become better than yesterday! Finally, to quote the great Dr. Clint Hill, “Okay that’s enough. Get back to work. 330 days left before the next open.” -Micki

CrossFit begins with a belief in fitness.
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide.
Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Combat, survival, many sports, and life reward this kind of fitness and, on average, punish the specialist.
The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.
The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree not kind. Our terrorist hunters, skiers, mountain bike riders and housewives have found their best fitness from the same regimen.Read More
