WHO'S GOING TO REGIONALS?
Hey guys, it's that time of year again the CrossFit Regionals. We'll be going out to check out all the festivities June 2nd through the 4th. Along with the competition there are plenty of vendors to check out!
The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Atlantic Regional features the fittest men, women, and teams from the Mid Atlantic and South East, United States. Only the top 40 men, 40 women, and 30 6-person teams were invited to compete at the Atlantic Regional.
Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes will face a barrage of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Can they do well in long events? Short events? Heavy lifting? Gymnastics? To make it to the Games, these athletes must be true generalists capable of handling any task thrown at them.
The five men, five women, and five teams who do the best in relation to their peers across all of the events will be invited to compete at the CrossFit Games held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Aug. 3-6.

At the end of each scoring week (Monday) once all scores are submitted to the box each individual's scores will be ranked 1 - 27. The first place score will get 27 points, second place 26, and so on. I will then total the points for each team and at the end of the five weeks one team will be declared CFEX Open champs!!!! To keep up with the weekly scores check our website crossfitex.com.
You will have two options for getting your Open scores in this week.
Hi guys come on out this Thursday at 6:30pm (2/9) for yoga. It will be in place of our 6:30pm WOD. This will be a great chance for you to get some restorative mobility and expand your repertoire. Kirstin Smith will be teaching it. The goal is to make yoga part of our weekly routine! Bring your mats and blocks and let's get to it.
*We'll have some mats but if you have one bring them!
Who's ready for The Open?!?!
The Open is the first stage of the CrossFit Games season and the largest community event of the year. Every year, hundreds of thousands of athletes come together to compete in the worldwide, online competition.
Anyone aged 14 or older can compete in the Open. All you have to do is sign up at Games.CrossFit.com and log your score each week. Workouts are released on Thursdays at 5 p.m. PT, and athletes have four days to complete the workout for the week and submit their score. Scores are due before 5 p.m. PT the following Monday. Complete the workouts at a CrossFit affiliate with a judge, or film your effort from anywhere in the world and submit a link as proof.
Since 2015, the Open has offered a scaled option in addition to the prescribed workout. This option makes the all-inclusive event even more accessible to the masses.
At the end of five weeks, the fittest move on to the next stages of competition: The Regionals and The Online Qualifier.
At CrossFit EX we're going to make the Open a team based competition. Participants will be split into two equal teams based on their classifications. Every week participants will be given points based on their participation and their performance. A the end of it all one team will be declared the CFEX Open Champs!
