Coach Jeremy is leaving us this Saturday to begin a new chapter in his life. We're really going to miss him. We've enjoyed his programming on several occasions over the years, so it's only fitting that he program his last week with us. Enjoy folks, it should be fun!

And that's a wrap for the 2017 CrossFit Open! Great job everyone, those five workouts were incredibly challenging, but it was a fantastic five weeks with plenty of support and cheering. And according to what I witnessed today, 17.5 sucked a great deal! A huge thanks to everyone who stuck around to cheer on others or judge, we've got a pretty special community!

Open Workout 17.5

This is the final workout of the 2017 Open. It's been a blast as usual and it's always great to see people pushing themselves and doing things they never imagined possible.

If you can, try and make it in for Friday night lights, it's going to be a blast!


Nice to see a few PR's today on the shoulder press, well done folks! And it's always nice to see some getting their first rope climb or overcoming their fears and improving.

Partner “Deck of Cards”

SPADES = pull-ups

HEARTS = hang power cleans (75/115)

CLUBS = box jumps (24/30)

DIAMONDS = front rack lunges (75/115)

JOKERS = 150 double unders / 50 shoulder-to-overhead (75/115)

Each group of two will have a shuffled deck of 54 cards. Lay the cards face down and on the count of “3-2-1, GO!” one person draws the top card and depending on the suit, will do one of the four movements above. Do the number of reps corresponding to the number on the card.

For face cards, it’s 11 reps for a Jack, 12 reps for a Queen, 13 reps for a King and 14 reps for an Ace.

This workout is for time. Take turns drawing cards and completing all reps for each movement until you are through the entire deck.


That was a fun MASH, super intense, nice job folks!
