2nd Annual Apollo Open
sign up sheet is on the whiteboard!!!
It’s the time of year again. Its open season! That means that for 5-weeks we will over analyze our strategies, diets and workout partners. We will loose sleep and sanity while we stay up refreshing the leaderboard. Hoping that this year is the year you take down Froning! To go through something this challenging, you need a support group. What better way than throwing down with some friends from Apollo.

Last year we did our first team competition using the Open workouts. This year we make it better! Every Thursday, starting February 25th, CrossFit HQ will announce an individual workout. Each workout will be completed at Apollo with a judge watching to ensure you’re hitting standards. Your individual score will go towards your teams overall total each week. At the end of the 5-week competition, we will crown a Champion!

Below are several details about the competition:

-Teams of 3
-Athletes do not need to be registered for the open to compete
-We choose the teams
-No one can sign up for a team after February 24th
-We finalize the teams on February 25th before 5pm
-Every week will have fun challenges that will allow teams to earn extra points toward their overall score to help give them an edge. These challenges can be anything from guessing the workout to wearing matching outfits to complete the workout.
-Each team will designate a team captain to track their scores and extra points. The team captain is responsible for ensuring all teammates have completed their workout and their extra points have been submitted.
-At the end of  The Open, when all scores are finalized, we will post the final leaderboard. The team who is ranked the highest will be awarded our “Apollo Championship Belt”! This belt will be inscribed with the winning teams name for the rest of time.
