 Last year Angela did the Open and struggled to get a single toes to bar.  She tried, and tried. Tears and blood were shed.  This year she did 25 reps and then nailed a monster clean and jerk in front of her friends cheering her on.  That’s what it’s all about!  Great job!

Week 1 of the intramurals is wrapped up!  I’ve got to get with the team captains and make sure everyone is assigned to a team and all scores were submitted but here are the standings as of right now:

Team NNR:  5 points for best team spirit plus 2 points for Jackie B scoring on both workouts + x points for each team member who did the Open workout and submitted their score.

Team Led by the Masters:  5 points for the weekly contest + 3 points (Carrie & Adrianx2) + x

Team Time to Beat:  2 points for Danny E & Chalise + x

Team 1st in Our Weight Class:   5 points (Tiffany x 2, Zach N, Zach B, Steve R) + x

I’ll get the team rosters but assuming balanced teams this is going to be a tight race!  Great job everyone and keep the PR’s coming!

Last but not least:  We have an awesome Barbell Club on Tues/Thurs at 10am and 4pm plus Saturday’s at 7:30am and 915am.  Come get better at your lifts and take advantage of this!

Week 1 of the Open ends today!  We have 81 athletes signed up and participating in the fun on 4 intramural teams.  If you still want to sign up and do the workout today (monday) is the last day.  Friday was an absolute blast!  The energy in the room was high thanks in part to the week 1 Team Spirit award winners, Jackie B’s No Name Required.  They brought the Pom-Poms and Canadian dance team.

As more scores get submitted our position will probably change but as of Sunday night we are 2nd in our region and 8th in the world and Adrian is currently 1st in our Region while Tiffany is 20th worldwide!  Kathy Stout is 2nd our region and 6th worldwide!  That is amazing.  Scoring for our intramural teams is a little bit different:

1 point for every athlete who does the Open workout and submits their score
1 point per athlete that finishes in the top three in the gym.
5 points for the team with the best spirit
5 point for the weekly contest winner

Once all the scores are in Monday night we’ll announce the team standings and awards.  Thank you to Burger Stop and Holy Smokes for donating some of the week 1 prizes.  Remember to hashtag your pics #WCFopen.  We’re also grateful to Steve Rossi for the amazing pics he took Friday afternoon.  This week we’ll be doing it again at 9am and 5pm Friday, come join the fun.

The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition. We do it every year. It’s fun. Last year, over 70 gyms created an Intramural competition thanks to Chris Cooper at Catalyst athletics. This year, that number will top 500.

Last year, over 80 WCF family members tried their hand at CrossFit “competition.” This year, there’s a new SCALED division, so we expect even more.

Our goals at WCF: 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.

In 2015, we’ll still have our competitive team, the Wasatch CrossFit Blue. We’ll still try to qualify for Regionals and we’ll have 2 Games athletes going for the gold again. But through the Open, we’re going to have four intramural teams competing. And you’re going to be on one of them.

The Four Intramural teams don’t have names yet. But their Captains will be choosing team names.  Your four captains are Damon, Jackie B, Danny E, and John & Kathy Stout.  Damon’s team will be named “First in our Weight Class” and he welcomes lovers of ice cream, mid-WOD dancing, and reggae music.  The ability to create outfits out of duct tape is also a huge plus for Team 1WC.  Photobombing skills are also in high demand.

Yep, we chose the FUN bunch to Captain, not always our traditional top scorers. We want you to sign up this year; are you really going to say no to BOO? I don’t think so.


Registration for the Open can be done at, and choose Wasatch CrossFit as your Affiliate.


Coaches and past competitors members will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team. They won’t lose their spot on our Regional team, and their points will still count toward our Affiliate score worldwide, but we want to ensure even distribution of our most competitive athletes.

Following that draft, every other athlete registered for the Open will be drawn from a hat. Team Captains will rotate draws, and then notify the athletes of their team. The ‘Draft Party’ will take place on Monday and late signups will be added to teams to keep team numbers even.

That’s where you come in. You’ll be courted by one of our Team Captains to join their team – probably more than one. Pick the funnest team!  Open Workouts will be done at 10am and 5pm on Fridays!


+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at CF each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!

+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at WCF for each workout (Rx only) gets an extra point for their team.

+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.  Custom homemade uniforms are plus.

+5 Points (bonus) – Biggest Breakthrough award.  First Muscleup?  First pullup?  We want to celebrate it!

+ 5 Points – (team) Best homemade shirt each week


In 2015, athletes competing in the Open will have only four days to complete each workout. We’ll be doing them on Friday at 10am and 5pm.  You can complete them other times as long as you have a registered judge for your score.  The Open will have five workouts.

As usual, you can be tested at any CrossFit Group time on predetermined ‘test days.’


Nelson’s photobomb game is on fleek


We’ll have some random draws each week for prizes, including gear, supplements, and training packages. The top team will also earn a GRAND prize team BBQ. Details released soon!

 Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff. 

Register online at the CrossFit Games site, and let’s start this party!
