Thanks to our Sponsors! 2017 CrossFit Open In-house Competition
The CrossFit Open is a worldwide, on-line CrossFit competition hosted by CrossFit Headquarters and it’s designed as the first test to entry for the annual CrossFit Games, held each summer in California. In 2016, over 320,000 people participated in the online competition!
Over 5 weeks, CrossFit HQ will announce a mystery workout each Thursday night and participants will have until Monday at close of business to complete the workout. We will be following the 5 weeks of workouts alongside the CrossFit Open, but we are putting our own spin on it!
Last year we introduced the Intramural Open In-house Competition. We had over half the gym sign up and they were on teams with funky names like The Walking Deadlifts, Swole Patrol and Jacked in the Box! Each week we competed together and heard some of the loudest cheering ever… and not just cause people were doing things they had never done before… although that happens too!
Our goals at Alvin CrossFit for the 2017 Open is to educate and inspire... and of course we’ll have a blast doing it together!
Competition helps with the “inspire” part. The desire to perform well pushes you to train harder. The social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. It’s not uncommon for people to do something in the Open that they’ve never done before! Heck, just watching your teammates GO is inspiring! There is an electric vibe around the Open workouts that can’t be described. It HAS to be experienced!
Week 1 Sponsor THANK YOU!
While competing is fun, it's more funner if there's some juicy prizes so each week we'll be rolling out some sort of prize for the
winning team. This week, our good friend (and soon to return to the gym when his baby let's him get a night of sleep) Freddie Lozano of Coastal Detailing & Oil Center has generously donated a FREE Silver Package car wash service to every member of the team that wins Week 1 (17.1)!
Freddie bought the detailing center about a year & half ago and immediately started making some positive changes... and a good name for himself. He hired new staff and changed the name to Coastal Detailing & Oil Center (Splish Splash under previous owner). Some of his customers drive from outside of Alvin just because of the great attention to detail that Freddie and his staff take with your vehicle. Check out some of the CLEEEEEAN vehicles his team have worked on by clicking HERE! If you're in need of a little white glove treatment, stop on by and tell 'em Alvin CrossFit sent ya!
Title Sponsor THANK YOU!
I'd also like to thank our Title Sponsor, RW Holistic Health in Friendswood. Ross Weaver (hence the "RW") has graciously
donated a 1 HOUR massage of choice to every team member who wins our overall in-house competition... and trust me, it couldn't come at a better time! Ross does phenomenal work and is well-versed in several modalities. When I walk out of there, I know I was in good hands. He really knows his stuff and has one of the most relaxing facilities I've ever been in! Check out one of his rooms below!
When you're ready for some serious relaxation, visit his website to see what he's all about and to book your appointment. He's also got a Grand Opening for this location coming up on Saturday, March 4th from 2-8 PM. Bring your family and friends for and awesome day of food, fun, prizes, games, and MORE!!
