CrossFit Bradford Intramural Open

For those of you who don’t know, the CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition that is done each year.  CrossFit HQ programs a new WOD every week for 5 weeks and cross-fitters all over the world compete for top score/time/weight each week.

Once you complete the workout, you submit your score on a global leaderboard, and compare them to likeminded athletes worldwide. If you were a little hesitant to sign up…you don’t have to worry – everyone can do the Open! Just like all of our regular workouts, there are always scaled options for every athlete!

One of the best parts of the CrossFit Open is the amount of PR’s that come out of it. The first double under or first T2B is always inspiring!

This year, we’re going to do something a little different at CrossFit Bradford to make sure everyone has an awesome experience – PRs or not!

We will have four intramural teams within CFB competing in the Open – and if you sign up, you’re going to be on one of them.

The four teams don’t have Team Names or Team Captains yet, but we will determine this over the next few weeks.

Registration for the Open has already started. Sign up at and choose CrossFit Bradford as your Affiliate.

The week before the Open starts, Team Captains and the Coaches will draft the teams. Once selected, you will be notified by your Team Captain!

In 2017, athletes competing in the Open will have four days to complete each workout. Workouts are announced on Thursday evenings and scores must be submitted by Monday evening. The first Open workout will be announced on Thursday, February 25.


During the Open, Friday evenings from 6pm – 8pm will become “Friday Night Lights” – a special Open event where coaches will go head to head, athletes can complete the workout, and snacks and drinks will be served (after you finish the WOD of course!).  Cheering squads and family members are welcome.

If you’re unable to join us for Friday Night Lights, class programming on Fridays will be designated to complete the Open Workout. Make-ups can always be done on Saturdays during Open Gym.

Points will be awarded to teams weekly based on the following:
+ 1 Point per athlete who attends Friday Night Lights
+ 1 Point per male and female athlete who finishes top 3 in the gym
+ 1 Point per athlete who completes the Open workout and submits their score
+ 5 Points for the team with the most spirit at Friday Night Lights (get creative!)

You will need to be judged to have an official score in an Open workout. If you would like to become a judge, you will need to complete the Open Judges Course. The course can be found here:
