14.FUN, 14.DONE

CrossFit does this thing called “The Open” where all the CrossFitters around the world can register on line and then participate in the weekly WODs (workout of the Day) that CrossFit puts out.  You have 4 days to complete the workout in front of a certified CF Judge and you then record your scores online and can see where you rank in the world against other CrossFitters.   Each week the workouts are numbered week 1 is 14.1, week 2 is 14.2 etc through week 5.  At the end of it all you can see where you rank against millions of people (hundreds of thousands anyway…) and it also qualifies those at the highest levels to regionals and ultimately to the CrossFit Games.  


MTT CrossFit will be 2 years old in July and last year at Open time the lot of us were green and still using too many green bands to jump into the whole judging aspect and to even really know what all this “open” stuff was about. But THIS YEAR?  We were READY and we loved every second of it.  We  had 13 of our members officially register for The Open but all of our members had the opportunity to complete all the workouts as well.  
Most WODs are crushing, but “OPEN” WODs bring it to a whole new level because of the fact that you’re being watched, judged, timed and everything has to be RX and right or you get a no rep and then you want to kill the judge.   No Broreps, no “count its”, no "that’ll do’s"  - get past 90, straighten your arms, get your feet past the bar, hit the line, or forget that wasted rep.  

We had some amazing break throughs over the past 5 weeks.  Every single person found strength where they hadn’t before, double unders were doubled and tripled, and chests met the bar for the very first time ever.  We had some breakdowns too: Kurt got beat up by a med ball, Dave took a knee to thrusters while losing his weight in sweat, and every single person had to take a pride and ego check - this stuff is hard.  Others are better/stronger/faster at us at something—or everything—and we just have to learn to be ok with that and focus on our own strides.

Ashley has been at Minnesota Top Team for almost two years and from the minute she joined she quickly became part of our MTT family unit. Ashley is an "all in" girl, she's not afraid to try new things and challenge herself.  She's been a part of our boxing, core circuit, CrossFit and even a little BJJ now and then. She even competed in a "real" boxing match last summer--now that's legit!  Her first love now is CrossFit.  She loves it so much she decided to get her L1 CrossFit certification.  Take a look at what CrossFit means to her and what it's done for her life.
