Every year, we do a fun in-house competition that is tied into the global functional fitness community. The CrossFit Games begins with an open invitation for anybody in the world to enter and earn their way into the next level of competition to find the fittest human beings in the world.
We use the global Open as a way for us to have some fun and benchmark our fitness – The Strive Open!
We’re switching it up substantially this year so, if you’ve competed with us before, pay attention to the details below – especially if you’re not a current member.
The 2022 Strive Open Overview
What is the overall structure of the Open?
The Open is a series of workouts spaced across three weeks. You will complete the event as an individual and your score will contribute to your team score. Individuals can do the workouts from anywhere: their gym, at home, in a park, or even on a beach — although you might find yourself eating sand if the workouts call for burpees! The Open follows the same cadence each week. The workout is released on Thursdays at 2 p.m. and you have until Monday at 7 p.m. to do the workout and submit your score in the Fortitude/Strive Family SugarWOD app. At the end of each week, you can see where you stack up against everyone else who completed the event. We will share a leaderboard with the overall standings for the teams.
Team and Division selection:
Pick your own team and decide which division you will compete in. If your team chooses Rx, your whole team must complete all 3 events Rx. If your team chooses Scaled, your whole team must complete all 3 events Scaled. Individuals on Masters teams will complete the workout as Rx for their age group. If the Masters individual cannot complete the event Rx for their age group, they may complete it scaled but their score will fall below all those that completed it as Rx.
Individual scores will be added up for each event which will make the team score for that event. Total team scores will then be ranked for a score each week. At the end of the 3 weeks, the teams that had the top 3 best overall scores in each division will be awarded podium positions and cash prizes. Each week’s scores will be visible in SugarWOD and the overall team scores will be shared in an separate leaderboard.
Each individual on the team will complete each event according to the division that the team signed up for. The team does not have to complete it at the same time as long as scores are in by 7pm on Monday of each week. Individuals do not have to complete the workout at Strive. Teams can include anyone from anywhere in the world. They will complete the workout from where they are. With that said…
Friday Night Lights (FNL)
We will host a super fun event each Friday night at Strive Strength & Conditioning (623 Hwy 71, Bastrop, TX 78602) during The Strive Open (Feb. 25, Mar. 4, and Mar. 11). You will sign up for a heat and get to benefit from the energy of doing the event with a bunch of other badasses. After each FNL, we’ll schedule a social event to have some fun and tell war stories about the workout.
