17.1 Recap

This past Saturday was a blast with the kick off to 17.1! It was great to see everyone pushing there limits and supporting the CrossFit Waterloo community.

Week 1 of the CrossFit Opens is slowly coming to an end, with Monday being the final day to complete/submit your scores. Please remember to submit your scores tomorrow by 8:00 PM.

Notes on submitting scores:
-Use either Yashar Laghai or Steve Gerger when choosing a judge for this week. We will have more valid judges for the weeks to come.

Important reminders for 17.2 and the rest of the opens…
We ask that everyone who is doing their open workouts on Saturday to sign-up for the “Competitors Class” in advanced (Listed in the Saturday classes). This gives us time to sort out heats ahead of time and more preparation for spacing out any equipment. If you aren’t participating in Saturdays open WOD make sure you arrange a time with one of the coaches ahead of time to complete the open workout. Also, if you need to go in the earlier heats on Saturday please email me (yash@crossfitwaterloo.com).

Furthermore, we would like to ask our members to please register under our Team. To do so if you have not already, you will need to log onto your profile on the CrossFit Games Website and click “join or switch team” to edit your team. If you have already put CrossFit Waterloo as your team you will see it listed in your profile. If you’re not under the CrossFit Waterloo team, you can simply change it under your profile (Follow the pictures below to help guide you). This update needs to be completed before 8:00 PM Monday.
