Requirements for Open Training:

  1. Unlimited Membership at CFM.  This is a 4x a week program (minimum) and we want to reserve the space for those that are serious about it.
  2. A minimum of 1 year of CrossFit experience.
  3. A working knowledge of all the major lifts.  These include, but are not limited to, Deadlift, Press, Squat, Bench Press, Clean, Jerk, and Snatch.
  4. A working knowledge of all the major advanced CrossFit movements.  These include, but are not limited to Muscle Ups, Handstand Pushups, Pistols, and Overhead Squat.
  5. A CFM Manager must agree that you are ready to enter the program.  A signed waiver (located at the front desk) must be obtained before entering the program.


Rules:

  1. Sign in on the whiteboard every day.
  2. There is no coach on the floor in Open training.  You are responsible for yourself and the safety of your actions.
  3. Perform the movements safely.  If you perform movements unsafely then you will not be allowed to continue the program.
  4. Scale appropriately.  If you perform movements unsafely then you will not be allowed to continue the program (get the drift?).
  5. If you don’t understand something, ask a coach (or Google).  Don’t get hurt experimenting.
  6. Clean up after yourself.  Your mommy doesn’t work here.
  7. Be respectful of other CFM programs.  We make a lot of noise and use a lot of equipment.  Just don’t be “that girl/guy.”
  8. Be safe and have fun.
