Now for my ramble (this is Matt)
Every year I hear from members asking "why should I do The Open?"I hear reasons from "I'm too new" to "I've done it too many times, what's there to prove?"I also see online where some gyms have stopped doing it all because they want the $20 to come to their gym and not to Crossfit (among many other stupid reasons).I can tell you this, the 5 weeks every year that we participate as a gym in The Open reinforces WHY we are a CrossFit gym and WHY The Tracks is an amazing place to workout.

What did I learn this year (still Matt)

1st- I saw a huge commitment of time by many of our members to hang around and help.From judging to cheering, none of this is possible without the strong community we have at The Tracks.
2nd - You are allcommittedmore than you realize. Those workouts were TOUGH and I'd bet 9 out of 10 of us would never do those at a Globo Gym if a friend recommended it.WHY, because you'd say "I Can't".But when you put yourself in a position that you are committed to doing these every week you do them and guess what...YOU CRUSH IT!

3rd - It teaches us lessons.I learned how diet/nutrition play a big role.I've always known this but I've never seen it first hand.These past 3 months were strange for me with travel and moving.I got out of my groove and ate more stupid food than Inormallydo.I can tell you that it made a difference.I felt it the most in 16.5.I look forward to getting back where I need to be and improving over the next few months.

4th - Our entire gym needs to do this every year for 1 group of people, our new members.I've been doing CrossFit for 5 years and 3 months.I know why I do it CrossFit and where I am in the CF world.I would be a person that could say "I don't do The Open, I've done it too many times, who cares?"But I don't,I love what it does for others.We had MANY 1st timers this year.I promise you, they wouldn't have done The Open if another member hadn't asked them to and if everyone else wasn't already doing it.For our new members to do this and see what they are capable of is WHY we should ALL be doing this every year.For me personally I loved watching all of you.I was honestly on the verge of giving upin the round of 12 on 16.5 and it then I thought of all of the new members who had already done this and that's what kept me going.

So to wrap this up, THANK YOU to everyone that not only did The Open but who helped and cheered.This is what our community is all about, keep up the hard work and let's all keep working towards our main goal...To Look Better Naked &Becoming Harder To Kill!
