The Open is the global CrossFit competition of the year and it begins Oct 10, 2019. It's a 5 week long, online event, uniting hundreds of thousands of CrossFitters around in the world.
At BRIO, The Open is our biggest community event of the year. Dozens of our athletes will put themselves out there to test their fitness and we are there to support and encourage each other through the process.

Step 5: Show up Fridays ready to throw down!
**New for 2019: Teams are now a thing of the past, but you can add #teambrio to your profile in order to find and create a custom leaderboard of all your BRIO homies!
Judging will take place Friday evenings from approximately 4-7pm in a fun fitness, cheers, and (maybe) beers format. Some weeks will be hosted at our Sutherland Location and some at our Stonebridge location. This is when we come together to cheer for one another, participate in judging, and push ourselves to new limits.
At BRIO, we follow a one and done policy for all our participants whose aspirations do not extend beyond the Open, meaning we will only provide a judge for and validate one attempt at each workout. The Open is fun, but we don't want to lose focus on our regular training to the detriment of our overall fitness.

What is the point of The Open?
The point of The Open is to put your fitness to the test in a fun event with your BRIO community! The point is to accept a challenge, support your friends, and have a good time.
What is NOT the point of The Open?
The point is NOT to stress out, feel bad, or add any negativity to your life.
What if I can't make it on a Friday night?
The Open at BRIO is our Friday community event and this is the time we've set aside in our busy class schedule for The Open workouts. If you have to miss one week, don't worry too much - it's all just for fun! We can accommodate a make up time during any Open Gym time slot on our schedule and you will need to make arrangements for your own judge.
Will we be doing The Open workouts in the regular classes?
The programming will continue like normal in our regular classes so that we don't have to disrupt the flow for 5 weeks for our hundreds of members who are not doing The Open. We won't be programming The Open workouts in the classes (it's really difficult to plan around an unknown WOD every week!), but any BRIO member is welcome to show up for Friday Night Lights even if you're not officially registered for The Open.
