The CrossFit event of the year is about to begin! Are you read?

(Hopefully, you're already familiar with CrossFit. If not, head over to and learn all about how CrossFit was started.)

Now we're headed into the good stuff!

It's time for the first leg towards the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games. The CrossFit Games are like the Olympics for CrossFit athletes. The games begin with the Open. The Open for 2018 takes place between February 22-March 26 (see full schedule here). During the open athletes will compete with others all across the world for five weeks. Each week a new WOD is released. The WOD contains various movements and requires different pieces of equipment. They are also slightly modified based on gender and skill level. The dates for each workout are as follows:

  • 18.1- Feb. 22-26
  • 18.2- March 1-5
  • 18.3- March 8-12
  • 18.4- March 15-19
  • 18.5- March 22-26

Those participating must submit their scores online.

Each year we have several customers that participate. This year we have an exclusive participant as our Wright ambassador, Lindsay Sport will compete. We're pretty excited to see Lindsay and the other athletes at CrossFit Laminin compete. 

All roads lead to Madison, Wisconsin for the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games!

Good luck to everyone competing.
