Planning for the Open

CrossFit Morristown and Guerrilla Fitness Team Up to Host Open Workouts

Karianne Dickson, owner of CrossFit Morristown, and Gregg Arsenuk, owner of Guerrilla Fitness/CrossFit Montclair, regularly talk to each other about business. So when the CrossFit Games Open was announced, they got together discuss how their gyms would participate in it.

Arsenuk’s gym, Guerrilla Fitness, hosted the 2010 New Jersey Sectional. From that experience, he knew he “could definitely use some help” hosting Open workouts. This year, he and Dickson are pooling together their equipment, resources and coaching staffs to host Open events.

Dickson and Arsenuk expect that a lot of people who don’t normally train at affiliates will show up to have their workouts validated. Because these athletes often train by themselves, they may not be used to having their reps checked for range of motion. Therefore, it’s important that the judges clarify the movement standards beforehand and enforce them fairly throughout the workout. Fortunately, CrossFit Morristown and Guerrilla Fitness’ coaching staffs are well trained and experienced.

In the end, both affiliate owners hope to create an atmosphere that’s competitive, exciting, professional and fun.

Will the athletes showing up at your boxes need to inform you in advance they are coming or is it just a "show up" type deal and pay whatever fee you folks lay out?
