The Details

The CrossFit Open begins at the end of February, and here are the details relevant to CFTC.

What is the CrossFit Open?

A chance to test your level of fitness in a series of 5 workouts that the worldwide CrossFit community will participate in. CFTC has participated for the last 6 years and it's a great, fun (voluntary) way to test your fitness. The video below gives some more details.  


Anyone who wants an extra challenge and the ability to be a part of a worldwide CrossFit event for 5 weeks.


5-week Rx & scaled workouts. The CrossFit Open is a chance to test your level of fitness in a series of 5 workouts that the worldwide CrossFit community will participate in. Although the atmosphere is more competitive, at CFTC we encourage the main competition to be proving to yourself what you are capable of and tracking the progress you've made.


The regular Friday classes will be the Open workouts (modified if necessary) but not scored.  If you want your workout scored you can attend a special 10:30AM class on Saturdays from 2/23 - 3/23.  Note: If enough people fill out the survey and opt for a different time, we will consider different options. If you are an unlimited member, it is a part of your membership. Punch-card and drop-in rates will apply otherwise. If you want a score, use the Friday class as chance to practice the movements and make a strategy.  Each week, the workout will be released on Thursday night at The scored workouts will be performed outside of normal class times because sometimes there are specific equipment needs and space restrictions that don't lend themselves to a normal class.  


It's fun and a challenge! We already have 6 people signed up and it's a great way to get to know people outside of your normal class times.

Hope you can join us. Contact if you have any questions.

Remember, Fridays we will be performing a modified version of the Open workout. This is a chance for everyone at the gym to get a taste of what these workouts are like (very similar to our normal workouts of the day). However, it will give those interested in being scored on Friday evening a chance to practice the movements at reduced loads and scale. The Friday workouts WILL NOT be officially judged, so if you register, please plan to come on Fridays at 7:30PM. If you cannot make this time, contact Dennis or Marcus to discuss a make-up time.

2019 CrossFit Open at CFTC

Welcome!  This page has been setup for the CFTC athletes that are interested in participating in the 2019 CrossFit Open.

CrossFit Open workouts will be scored Fridays 2/22 - 3/22 at 7:30PM at CFTC. As needed, makeup sessions will be Saturdays at 10:30AM.

Scored workouts will be at the drop-in rate for non-members or a $40 buy-in for members plus $20 registration. The small fee is to offset the cost for additional coach-led sessions, a t-shirt, event organizing, and a final end-of-Open celebration. Drop-ins are welcome. A single scored session is $25.

New this year!

We will be organizing teams to have a fiendly internal competition throughout the Open. Teams are there to encourage camaraderie and support throughout the 5 weeks. If you’re interested in being a team captain, let us know.
