What is the Wynwood CrossFit OpenOPEN

A 5 Week Challenge consisting of 1 weekly workout that coincides with the 2019 CrossFit Open.

Two teams will battle it out over the 5 weeks to collect the most points and be crowned the Wynwood CrossFit Open WYNners.

The WYNning team will be announced at the end of the 5 weeks.
A tiebreaker workout will be released as “Week 6” if there is a tie after 5 weeks.

We have simplified the divisions into 3 age categories for both RX & Scaled categories:

  • Freshmen: Age 34 and under

  • Captains
    • Your CFW Coaching Staff will be selecting team captains and announcing them no later than Wednesday, February 13th.
  • Player Draft
    • On Sunday, February 17th, our CFW staff will gather to take turns randomly drafting players that have signed up for our WCO. You can still sign up after the draft takes place until Thursday February 21st. However, you may not choose which team you want to be on. The Captains are responsible for encouraging CFW members to sign up for the WCO. The more participation, the more opportunities for fun and points each team will have.
  • Teams
    • Players will be equally drafted into 2 teams. The CFW coaching staff has the right to reassign players to ensure equal distribution. There will be a “Black” and “Blue” themed teams respectively. Each team will vote upon their own creative names and/or mascots.

> Judging

Coaches and members will all be your judges. A coach will go over the standards for the movements prior to starting each heat. Judges can judge their own teammates, however, we encourage you all to judge one another.  For a better understanding of movement standards, anyone may enroll for the online CrossFit Judges course by visiting oc.crosfit.com.
