You've probably seen "Open Gym" on the schedule at your local CrossFit gym but you're a little worried about going and doing a workout by yourself. You are not alone. While we think that group CrossFit classes are best for your athletic development, occasionally you may only have time to make it to a scheduled open gym. What do you do there? Who will be there? Will it be as scary as I think? I'll try to answer all those questions below.
First off, open gym times at most CrossFits are supervised but not necessarily coach led. Unlike a regular CrossFit class you'll be on your own to warm up and work out. So where do you start?
Congrats! Taking time to work on things you're not good at or making up workouts you missed says a lot about you and how seriously you're taking your fitness journey. Follow the steps above, get to as many classes as you can and there's not stopping you.
