2016 CROSSFIT OPEN For those unfamiliar, this is the annual worldwide competition that kick starts the road to the Crossfit Games. Everyone that signs up gets the chance to complete the exact same WOD as others from other boxes locally and around the globe.
Kicking off this Friday there will be 5 total workouts that are released over 5 weeks from Crossfit HQ, each being announced roughly midday Friday with a completion and submission deadline of 11:00am the following Tuesday. As with previous years we’ll run the workout as part of the Saturday WOD. For those that can't make the Saturday and are wanting to get involved, let us know and we could possibly arrange a time more convenient. Any athlete who is hoping to compete at Regionals will need to follow a few extra steps during the Open with more contingency as to who is judging their WOD as well as a recording being provided. In reality for us this will be more about having some fun and chance to participate in a makeshift competition having your WOD judged and reps counted for. We’ll be running the released workouts as our WOD for that day if you decide to register or not but we really want to encourage as many of you as possible to have a crack and get involved. Regardless if you're new or old to CrossFit, it's pumping few weeks that brings out a little bit more in everyone and a time to embrace the community aspect of Crossfit. If anything, the Open is an excellent way to see where your strength and weaknesses lye and also see how you fare against others around Australia and the world! The online comp page also gives you comparison options so you can see how stack up against the likes of a Rich Froning or Camille LeBlanc, but also someone with the same length of crossfit experience, age, weight etc. All your individual scores get used for our overall Affiliate score so pretty exciting time to see how stack up as a box!!

**STARLIGHT 24HR ROWATHON**
On Friday the 15th of May we'll be holding a 24 hour charity rowathon with all proceeds going toward the Starlight childrens foundation.
Teams will grind out as many km's as possible changing their rower over as they like but must be constantly working thru from 5pm Friday to 5pm Saturday.
This champion effort that we'll be putting in is fitting for the champion efforts the guys at Starlight do on a daily basis to brighten up the lives of sick children and their families. Help us raise some bucks for some real little legends out there!
* This epic occasion also marks Crossfit Brawns second birthday at the box! Get involved by putting your team together, join an existing or just come down and get amongst it!
