AURORA METAJ OLY SEMINAR RESCHEDULED FOR JAN 27
The clean and jerk and snatch seminar with Aurora Metaj has been rescheduled for Saturday, Jan. 27. Time will be 8-noon or so. Ryan and I are really excited to have a professional lifter of her quality come share her knowledge and technique. The cost is $50 and spaces are limited. To register and get your name on the list, email me or tell me at the box. The timing of this seminar should be great; because this will give us a great opportunity to improve C&J and snatch right before the CrossFit Open. Registration for the Open should begin right around Jan. 11; with Open WODs starting around Thurs, Feb. 22.

The Open is the first stage of the CrossFit Games season and the largest community event of the year. Every year, hundreds of thousands of athletes come together to compete in the worldwide, online competition.
Anyone aged 14 or older can compete. All you have to do is sign up at Games.CrossFit.com and log your score each week. Workouts are released on Thursdays at 5 p.m. PT, and athletes have four days to complete the workout for the week and submit their score. Scores are due before 5 p.m. PT the following Monday. Complete the workouts at a CrossFit affiliate with a judge, or film your effort from anywhere in the world and submit a link as proof.
The Open offers two versions of each workout, scaled and Rx'd. The scaled option makes the event all-inclusive. All athletes can compare their results to others worldwide, regionally, by age or within their own gyms. An official CrossFit Games app will be available in late January, which will focus on your own personal performance in the Open.
At the end of five weeks, the fittest move on to the next stages of competition: the Regionals and the Online Qualifier.
TRACKTOWN SMACKDOWN: SAT FEB 10
Another event promoted by Northwest Fitness Games, CFN will, as it seems as of this writing, have 2 teams going to compete at this event. Hopefully some more of you might put together a team...it's fun, a great excuse for you to develop as an athlete, and with their brand-new 'Novice' category, no one has an excuse not to compete!
