COASTAL IN-BOX OPEN – LET’S HIT THIS TOGETHER!!!
STARTS 24th FEB, Every Friday & Saturday night for 3 WEEKS.
Our goal at Coastal CrossFit Queensland is to educate and inspire you to become the best version of yourself.
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 plan. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring!!!
Every year, CrossFit HQ runs an event called “The CrossFit Open”
Once again, we are going to make this our own (thanks to some inspiration from CrossFit Catalyst).
For many of our members we’re not interested in finding out how fast you can exercise against 400,000 other people worldwide. We ARE interested in helping you push to new levels in fitness, level up your life, and get high fives from our Coastal family.
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so. COASTAL IN-BOX OPEN (Concept stolen from Catalyst athletic). Last year we had over 80 members participate – 4 teams lead by some amazing captains and surrounded by awesome community.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We’ll divide you up into four teams, each with a Team Captain and an awesome team name of your choice.
Your can earn points for your team by participating (most points) winning an event (second-most points) and showing the most spirit during events.
Three weeks of intense Open workouts, fun, laughter, banter and end of Open event.
A draft will happen between now and February 4th.
Team Captains will be working hard to get you signing in for the IN-BOX OPEN.
We want as many people signed in prior to the 4th Feb.
Team Captains will receive +1 Point for every member they get to sign up.
Each member signed up prior to the 4th Feb will also get +1 Point that will be allocated to their assigned team on Draft night.
On Draft night (TBA) we will get together to watch your name be pulled from a hat (PRE-REGISTER above).
Unlike school, EVERYONE GETS PICKED.
Following the 4th Feb, our Team Captains will work hard to get the rest of our members on board for the ride!!
We have chosen a FUN bunch to Captain your Teams.
DEADLIFTERS -Robbie Morton, Co-Captain (Penny), Co-Captain Russ
MAGIC MIKE & The FUNKY BUNCH – Mike Greeff, Co-Captain (Barb)
WHERE’s WODY – Sam, Co-Captain (Luke B)
Hakuna MaSQUATa – Nata , Co-Captain Danielle.
We want you to sign up this year; are you really going to say no to our awesome team captains? I don’t think so.
This year we will run a weekly and running scoreboard in house.

You can also sign up for the Open the CrossFit Games Site to check your rank worldwide. Please note# This is a separate registration.
