The Ultimate Guide to the 2021 CrossFit Open in North Georgia!

For any newbies out there, the CrossFit Open is the world largest participatory athletic event in history, and usually consists of 5 workouts spread across 5 weeks that aim to find the fittest people in the world. It is an absolute blast that has had over 500,000 people worldwide participate and they are expecting even more this year, by 35 total divisions, including 19 adaptive athlete divisions.

Each week, on Thursday night, www.CrossFit.com will put out a workout that everyone will complete between then (that Thursday night) and Monday night. This year being a bit different there will only be 3 workouts over the course of 3 weeks (but we’ll be adding a 4th😉). As you can imagine, this is in response to COVID-19 and the fact that there are still quite a few states that are still not allowed to operate their businesses (CrossFit gyms in particular) right now. This year is also different in the fact that there will be 4 different options for completing each workout: RX, Scaled, Foundations, and Equipment Free. 

They have actually already released what equipment will be needed as well (which is also different than ever before) and it is as follows:

  • A dumbbell
  • A barbell and plates
  • A plyo box
  • A jump rope
  • A pull-up location

So with this information, as well as previous years workouts, we at P6 CrossFit have done the research, and programmed the 6 weeks leading up to the Open to help our members be as prepared as possible.

Now………. I know many of you are asking yourselves, “Why should I do the Open? There’s no way I’m the fittest in the world”. And that’s true for 99.99% of us, and that’s why we are running an in-house Intramural Open again this year!

In our Intramural Open, you’ll have the ability to contribute to a team every single week no matter your score on the actual workout (WOD). Go above and beyond in your spirit or performance and you can contribute even more. Most importantly, it’ll be an absolute blast and the highlight of fun and community here at P6.

So what exactly is the Intramural Open?

It all starts with you “registering” for our Intramural Open by purchasing a “ticket”.

Your ticket will get you a team shirt designed specifically for this year’s Open as well as entrance into P6 CrossFit’s Open workout 21.4.

On February 26th, we’ll get together and choose a team captain for each team, (so let us know if you’re interested) then we’ll split all of our members into even teams.

During the Intramural Open, your team earns 10 points for every person on the team that completes the workout and submits a score into Wodify. Which means…it doesn’t matter if you RX or scale the workout because you will get the same amount of points as everyone else, just for doing it.

  • If you place top 3 in your division for a workout (RX,Scaled) then you earn 20 more points.
  • If your team brings the most spirit in any given week (more on that later) then your team receives 50 extra points
  • If you post on social media about how P6 has affected your life you will get 30 points, and 100 points for the best one (best can be: most creative, most impactful, etc)
  • Check into P6 CrossFit on social media, to be entered into a weekly drawing of 100 points
  • Leave a Google or Facebook review for another 20 points.
  • If you become a judge by going  to https://oc.crossfit.com/course?id=43 and completing the online course (it takes about an hour and costs $10), you will receive 200 points for your team. This is so valuable because it will also help you understand some of the simpler standards that we look for as coaches day in and day out.

So, say you aren’t the best athlete in the gym. No big deal. Complete the workout, bring tons of spirit, and complete the judges course and you could make the biggest point contribution in the gym!

Remember, it’s totally normal to be a little nervous. But then again, you were all super nervous the first time you walked through our door and you know how well that worked out 💪. So make the leap, trust in us, and get ready for an amazing time!

During the Open we will only have two classes on Fridays: 5am and 6pm to ensure that majority of the teammates can be at one or the other

Saturdays class will be from 10am until 11am

“First attempts” are all that will be accepted for points in the P6 Intramural Open.

If you “redo” the workout you will not be guaranteed a judge so post in our group chat and see if someone is available.

Workouts will only be programmed for Fridays and Saturdays. If someone can’t make it on a Friday or Saturday then they can do it on Monday, but will need to make sure they have a judge, because there will be normal programming on Monday’s.

Let’s do this!

JORDAN HOWARD

COACH/ADMINISTRATOR

I was born and raised here in Lafayette, where started CrossFit a little over three years ago. I participated in athletics throughout high school, and have continued to compete while in college pursuing a career as a Nurse Practitioner. CrossFit has changed my life. It has given me a competitive edge, provided me with another platform to test my fitness, increased my quality of life, and connected me with my second family here at P6 CrossFit. With the help and encouragement of our members and coaching staff, I have had the pleasure of becoming a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Through coaching, my goal is to impact and improve the quality of life of the athletes I meet, whether they are beginners, or elite.

T.J. WILLIAMS

COACH

My name is T.J. Williams and am a husband and father. I am currently the Senior Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at the Farm Golf Club
where I have been working for the past 7 years. started CrossFit because I was getting bored with the same bland routine of a traditional gym. I
had a friend that had just started coaching and he talked me into trying it. I was hooked from the word go. I always enjoyed competing growing up as I played almost every ball sport you could. CrossFit brought back that competitive drive I was missing. After several years of doing CrossFit, I began wanting to help people on their CrossFit journey so I obtained my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate. I enjoy helping people achieve things they never thought they would be able to accomplish. Seeing people conquer fears and experiencing that “light bulb coming on moment” is rewarding to me. One piece of advice I would give to anyone whether they are new to CrossFit or have been doing it for years would be to enjoy the CHASE of mastering the movements.

ROBERT PLANK

CEO/HEAD COACH

This is the short version: One September morning, the 9-11 tragedies happened. My best friend and decided that it was our duty to do our part to protect the freedoms that we barely knew anything about. The last time was blown up while deployed to Iraq, I was hit in the head with a piece of shrapnel.

I lost all memory from before that point, and I still have no visual memory to this day. I was discharged from the military and had to figure out how to move forward. I have now been out of the military since 2007 and have found ways to work around these things, to where most people meet, don’t even notice anything is different. Because of the traumatic brain injury suffered, have had an MAI on my brain, yearly since the incident. In June of 201S I received a call from a VA neuro surgeon telling me that my scar tissue had grown and that he believed it was a brain tumor. He requested that I come in immediately to have it removed. I honestly believed it was still just scar tissue and they were overreacting. Man was I wrong. After multiple types of MAI’s proving that it was a tumor, I went in to have it surgically removed. Turns out, it is an incurable type of brain cancer that is supposed to come back (but more on that later). So went through months of Chemo and daily radiation treatments. During that time I felt pretty terrible, so I ate A LOT. Not only did I eat a lot, but I ate a lot of pure junk food which lead to me weighting over 2SOlbs, knew it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself, and that I needed to get up, get back in shape. feel like everything learned about diet, fitness, and lifestyle will not only delay the return of the cancer, but I honestly don’t think it’s coming back at all (I’m an optimist though). had always (even before the military) wanted to get into buying houses, fixing them up, and selling/renting them. I figured there no time life the present, and pulled the trigger on that dream. The process of taking something that needs work, and making it the best it can be, is a passion of mine that now translates directly into being the Owner of PS CrossFit. know it sounds cheesy, but once you get told that you have cancer, everything in life suddenly has more purpose and you realize that tomorrow isn’t promised. You realize that you have a limited amount of time to fulfill your potential and do what makes you happy. Helping others live better lives is what makes me happy. P6 CrossFit has been my opportunity to help more people in a shorter amount of time than anything I have ever done. I am able to help others reach and exceed their goals on a daily basis. get to see people come into the gym intimidated, with low self-esteem, and watch them transform into extremely confident and proud individuals.
