The CrossFit Open season is upon us!!! It's time to sign up! The open starts February 25th-March 28th and will consist of 5 workouts. Each week during the open, CF HQ will release the Open WOD that we will pencil into our Friday programming at Dog House. If you cannot train on a Friday, you will have four days (until Monday evening at 5pm PST) to complete the WOD and submit your scores. It's an awesome time to come together as a community and test our fitness, and see how we stack up not only individually, but against other gyms!

All Dog House members who sign up will be placed onto Coach led teams! We will tally up scores, announce winners, award one person each week for CF Open "Performance of the Week" for whoever shows the most guts and glory. We will also have fun viewing parties at the gym on occasional Thursday nights when the workouts are released (alternating with the Food Academy) as well as a post CF Open celebration for all that participated. We want as close to 100% gym participation as possible so sign up today and make sure you select "Dog House" as your gym and team!
