What is the Intramural Open
The intramural open is the most highly anticipated and participated time of the year at CFJG. It runs concurrently with The CrossFit Games Open in which over the course of 5 weeks you’ll complete 5 workouts. Our intramural twist is to increase participation, fun and camaraderie within the gym. The Intramural Open will consist of 2 teams participating for maximum points over the course of the 5 weeks of the open.. So, lets walk through how the Intramural Open season works.
