2.11.19 – Monday

The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is coming soon, so we wanted to take a moment to share all the information you will need in order to participate.

This blog post is really long (sorry!) but it will give you all the info you need, so please read it carefully. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.


The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open begins Thursday, Feb. 21. Anyone can sign up to compete in five workouts over five weeks and post their scores online. You can learn more about the Games here.

There’s still time to register for the 2019 CrossFit Open. You must register before you submit your first score before February 26.


Once you register, make sure to join the CrossFit 312 Affiliate AND Team.


Each week the CF 312 Open will follow a similar format:


CrossFit Headquarters will announce each week’s workout via a live video feed at 7 p.m CT. We will be hosting a face-off event each Thursday between two CF 312 athletes. This will be followed by one heat for all those interested in completing the workout on Thursday night.


The 8 a.m., 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. classes will be divided into heats for attempts at the open workouts. Athletes should arrive with enough time before their heat time to warm up. There will be a recommend warm-up posted and coaches on hand to answer any questions. Heats will start promptly at their posted times after a briefing on movement standards and time to set up work area before you begin your workout. Athletes should be prepared to help score for other athletes.

Athletes must pre-register for a heat in PushPress to participate in Saturday classes. Athletes who do not register for class will be filtered into heats based on availability. Athletes who chose not to sign up for the Open but want to do the workout must also pre-register for a heat to participate.

NEW THIS YEAR! – CF312 Intramural Open

We will be drafting teams to compete throughout the 5 weeks event. Teams will be compiled of 6-8 athletes. Athletes who want to compete must register for the games and sign up for this event in PushPress. This will be available in your app or you can register here. Teams will be a mix of Male/Female, RX, Scaled, and Masters athletes. All athletes will be scored based off the CrossFit games standards/online leaderboard. There will be prizes and serious bragging rights on the line. Team captains and names will be decided in the coming days leading up to the 1st workout.


In order to accommodate the Open schedule, Saturday Strength Class will be cancelled from February 21 through March 30. We will post strength programming on the Sunday blog to complete during open gym.

Saturday Strength Class will resume its normal schedule when the Open concludes.


If you are unable to attend on Thursday evening or Saturday, athletes (who are registered for the Open) will be allowed to complete the workout on their own during open gym hours or during normal class time on Friday (any class) or Monday.

If you want to make up a workout on Friday or Monday, athletes must sign up for a class in PushPress, warm up with the class before attempting workout. They must also secure a judge to score them. If you plan to do this, please notify the coach on duty at the beginning of class.

Athletes who do not have a judge and do not make it to regular class times will not be allowed to complete workout.


Alumni and athletes from other CrossFit gyms are more than welcome to complete open workouts at CF 312. This will be a community event and no drop in fee will be charged. We also encourage you to bring friends and family to cheer you on!

Please contact info@crossfit312.com if you plan on dropping in for an open workout to register a drop-in participant for a heat.
