We are in the FINAL WEEK of this year's CrossFit Open, and are having a blast with the North vs South Aevitas Open format this year!
The final workout will be announced later today (Thursday), so we thought now would be the best time to see where the Aevitas teams stand, what's at stake, and to formally invite you to the Open After Party! Keep reading for all the details.
Aevitas Open Team Update
After the first week of competition, it was "team South" who came away with a slight lead of just a few percentage points. Check out how everyone did in Week 1 below!
Week 2 told a much more interesting story, as there were two components to 23.2. The first component, which was comprised of shuttle runs and burpee pull-ups (or burpees to target), allowed Team North to edge out a victory over Team South. Then, the max Thruster component of 23.2b went in the opposite direction, and Team South again took the W.
It's still a very tight race between North and South, and we are pumped to see what's coming down the pipe this final week!
Don't forget to tune into the live announcement this afternoon at games.crossfit.com!!
The Aevitas Open Trophy
As soon as the scores are submitted and tallied for 23.3, we will announce the winner of our first North vs South Aevitas Open competition! The prize - a hand-crafted, ultra-beefy gym trophy for the winning team! Check it out!
And don't worry- this thing is here to stay! We will be hosting other intra-gym competitions throughout the year, all with a chance to bring the Aevitas trophy home to your gym - stay tuned for more on that in the coming months!
Join Us for the After Party!
To cap of this year's Open competition, and to celebrate Coach Victoria's birthday, we are drinking margaritas, of course! Join us after the Open workout on Friday, March 3rd at El Charro in Latham! Bring your appetite - the first round of margaritas and appetizers is on us! Just a way to say thank you for participating, and congratulations for a job well done in this year's Aevitas Open!
