The CrossFit Games have changed significantly in the last couple of years as CrossFit HQ has shifted its focus from the spectacle of competing for the title “Second Fittest Man on Earth after Mat Fraser” to the global health crisis of chronic disease. One of those changes  is coming soon…the CrossFit Games Open begins next week. If you want to compete in the events, the Saturday morning workouts (regular class times) beginning on October 12 and running through November 9 will be the CrossFit Games Open workouts.

Things at Oak Park have changed (less drastically) in the last couple of years, and more specifically will change beginning next week. Thursday night’s 7:30pm Mobility & Recovery class is going to change. “Change to what?” you ask? Well, ask your coach. It will be an opportunity for you to come in and work on specific goals under the guidance of a coach. That could mean a lot of things, from picking up a workout you missed in the week or working on weaknesses. Really, it can be anything that you and your coach together decide upon. What it will not be is “open gym.” It will be a class, you will need to sign in for it, and I will not let you sign in and do anything unless I’ve been assured by you that you and your coach have had a conversation about whatever you are going to work on (which might even be an Open workout!).
