My plea to CrossFitters who are on the fence about signing up for the Open: Do it!  This is me, #CrossFit Games Open 11.1, snatches and double unders.  Less than 3 months into CrossFit, terrible at double unders and as evidenced by this picture I didn't even know how to set up for a snatch. Do it even if you think you're not ready!  You will be challenged. You will improve. You will grow from the experience.

  • mrstchambers1@eakinwale thanks so much for the push. I really need that. I'm going to do it. I was so scared that I will look stupid because I'm new to crossfit and not really ready. But your right. :-)

  • 3xfitmamaBecause I'm a disabled vet...I have hip and back issues, which CrossFit has only made better, but form is still slacking...

  • blazethelionI agree. I did this year's Open after only 3 months in Crossfit. It allowed me to see my strengths & weaknesses. I've already seen significant improvements since 13.1.

  • launicabella03@eakinwale I went to a box this past Saturday as my 1st crossfit experience ever... watched the CrossFit games this past week too. I've been looking into & thinking about doing more, and I must say this pic is inspiring!
