Do it for fun, do if for your affiliate family, and do it for fitness.
Since 2011, the folks over at CrossFit have done something called the CrossFit Games open. The Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition. We do it every year. It’s a blast! It's the first step to qualifying to compete in the games. But for most people, it's just a way to test your fitness.
Are you the fittest person in your town? In your age group? in your state? country? With 300,000 people entering worldwide, you could find out! And this includes athletes of ALL ability levels.
But last year, everything changed. In 2016, the CrossFit Berrien Open Intramurals began. It wasn't about being the fittest, it was about showing up, doing the work, and supporting your team.
And it was SO much fun.
We had amazing workout performances and we also had great team spirit. Last year, many of our athletes PR’d their lifts and got movements like C2B, TTB, or Muscle-ups for the first time during the Open. This year, we expect even more fun and PRs. The Life RX open starts officially on Feb 23rd, and this year it's going to be even BETTER!
You'll be doing 5 workouts in 5 weeks on Thursday nights or Sunday morn/aft from Feb 23rd to March 26th. The workouts are determined by CrossFit HQ, and are a lot like the ones you do every day at Life RX.
Everyone who signs up will be assigned to one of 4 teams. There are RX, Masters, Scaled, and Teen divisions so everyone can participate.
Your goal for each week is to show up and do the best you can.
The cost is $40. $20 of that goes to CrossFit HQ, $20 is for your t-shirt/tank. One allows you to see yourself on the official CrossFit leaderboard against 300,000 others (including those just like you), the other gives you a sweet shirt you can rock that will be a reminder that you are tough, brave, and can do anything you put your mind (and your body) too.

Our goals at LRX: to educate and inspire, and make people better every day. 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. Watching your teammates GO is inspiring.
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all of the fun of competition without leaving the box we know and love? We think so. But only if you join us!
