Every year in the spring every CrossFit gym worldwide kicks off the CrossFit Competition season with “The Open”. The Open is a three week Fitness competition that takes place in each and every CrossFit Box worldwide. For some it is the first step on the way to the CrossFit Games. For many of us, it is just about the funnest community event that challenges us each and every year. If you are new to the CrossFit world, let us fill you in on all things Open and how we at CrossFit City of Lakes do “Open Season”.

The CrossFit Open is a three week world wide CrossFit Competition for any and all levels of athletes. The workouts take place at COL on the following dates.

You can complete the Open workouts in our normal classes in the morning and mid afternoon on these days, or you can complete them in front of our community at Friday Night Lights?
Everyone! Whether you are the best athlete in your gym or it is your first week at COL. Everyone gets to do the Open. It is our favorite time of year and is such a fun part of our community. Last year we had over 160 COL Athletes participate. We would love to see 200 Athletes from our gym participate this coming year.

Friday Night Lights is an opportunity to showcase your skills and abilities in front of your COL community. Every Friday for three weeks from 3:30-7:30pm CrossFit City of Lakes gets transformed into a competition floor. We will run heats and have judging for all participants. Each week we have a mini party with food, adult beverages and a crazy cheering section.
