2016 CrossFit Open Schedule Changes

Starting this Friday, February 26th, the CFNYC schedule will be altered for the next five weeks for the 2016 CrossFit Open.

If you follow the Beginner or the Experienced Programming tracks, it is generally recommended that you stick with your normal class times.  Since we will not know the workouts in advance, we cannot make recommendations about which class you should take until after the announcement.

A workout like “7 minutes of burpees” means anyone could attend any class regardless of the name and do the workout with little concern about scaling. However, a workout involving more advanced skills like muscle ups may mean that you need to choose “Scaled” over “Rx” depending on your skill level. This is something to keep in mind if you have auto-reserved classes or attend a very early morning class on Friday. Make sure you check the website on Thursday night for the WOD!

Note: If you workout at 67th street and the workout has wall balls to a 10 foot target OR muscle ups, AND you are registered for the Open AND plan to submit a score, you’ll want to make arrangements to test your workout that week at 28th street.
