The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition. We do it every year. It’s fun.

At CrossFit Port Royal Sound, we do the CrossFit Open a bit differently. This is the PRS Intramural Open:

First, we’ll select six Captains from among the PRS members.

Then we’ll draft every member at PRS onto one of six teams.

The Captains’ job is to get you to register for the Open, and experience the benefit of annual group competition.

Then you start attending our five-week Open Prep Course to learn everything you need to know.

This course begins January 19, at 6:00pm Friday.

Each week, we’ll focus on a skill you’ll (probably) see in the Open: double-unders, toes-to-bar, pull-ups, ring dips, etc.

Then we’ll perform a workout from a previous Open, so you can get a taste of what collaborative competition is really like.

Between classes, you’ll be given some basic homework to complete during Open Gym time, or even on your own at home.

Our goals at PRS: to educate and inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring.

Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so.

And can we push you to higher levels of fitness doing so? Absolutely.
