Hello CrossFit Westers!

As you may well know, the 2012 International Reebok CrossFit Games Open is close upon us. Registration for this exciting event has officially started and the first Open WOD for this season will be released Wednesday, February 22nd, at 5:00 pm PST.  There will only be five WODs in the Open this year as opposed to the six Open WODs last year.

I strongly encourage all of you to sign up and compete!  It doesn’t matter what your current ability level is.  I’m out of my normal “CrossFit shape” but I am doing it!  This will prove to be a great and fun experience for everyone involved.  You will be competing against (and with!) tens of thousands of CrossFit athletes from all over the world.  I mean, seriously, …how cool is THAT?!  …It’s really pretty amazing, actually.  It should be some kind of Guinness World Record thing.

There are also some awesome prizes to be offered!

“The largest team worldwide will be rewarded handsomely. On Sunday, February 26, at 5 p.m. PT, the team with the most registered athletes will win tickets to the Games–as many tickets as registered team members–and have their affiliate fee waived for life.

The team prizes don’t end there. The team with the most validly registered athletes in their region on Sunday, February 26 at 5 p.m. PT will win tickets to their Regional competition.”

SO, …not only do we have a chance to win tickets for our ENTIRE CrossFit West Community, (ALL OF YOU), to the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games, …but we can ALSO win tickets for our ENTIRE CrossFit West Community to the NORCAL REGIONALS!!!  (SWEET!!!)

But that’s not all…..

“Each week, one athlete will be selected who represents the CrossFit community for the Spirit of the Open competition. Nominations for athletes with extraordinary stories, locations, or obstacles to competing in the Open, may be sent to [email protected] with “Spirit of the Games” as the subject line. The athlete may compete in any division of the competition. The week’s Spirit of the Open award winner will receive $2,012!”

YOU could be the athlete one of the weeks to win the “Spirit of the Open” competition!  (Yes, you!)

Please help ALL of our CrossFit West community by registering for the 2012 International Reebok CrossFit Games and improving our chances to win, as well as cementing your place in one of the most epic and encompassing competitions the world has ever seen.

I’m registered for the 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games Open!  …Are you?  🙂
