Open prep week 2 

16th September – 22nd September 

2nd week of our lead up to the CrossFit Open starting on October 10th

Check back to last week’s programming for a full brief on this block and what we intend to do over these weeks. 

If you haven’t registered yet, head over to and sign up! Speak to your hybrid coach if you have questions about The Open, and if it’s right for you or not. 

(I would HIGHLY recommend being really sensible if doing back to back days this week. The intensity is high (apart from Thursday) and you’ll need time to recover from the workouts. For example, if you’re coming Friday for the Open workout, then have a rest Saturday. Both days are intense and we don’t want anyone over training/getting injured.) 

Have a good week, and enjoy your fitness! ?
