The CrossFit Open Starts on Today!

Sign-up for The Open, WIN an APPLE WATCH.


The 2019 CrossFit Open is just a couple of days away, which means our annual "Friday Night Lights" series is right around the corner. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a CrossFit newbie, RARE CrossFit wants YOU to sign-up and be a part of the fun!

The concept of the CrossFit Open may seem foreign or overwhelming to some of our newer athletes but fear not, the coaches at RARE are here to guide you through it. Just like our CrossFit classes, The Open is for everyone.


Just Like Any Other Group Class Workout

Over the course of 5 weeks, workouts will be released on Thursday and RARE CrossFit will participate in the fun by doing the workout each Friday. Just like our daily class workout, there will be an RX and scaled option for each of the workouts, as well as age group divisions for athletes over the age of 35 and under the age of 18.

A common misconception for newer athletes is that they "aren't ready for The Open". This could not be further from the truth. The Open is a perfect opportunity to assess your fitness, get out of your comfort zone, and be a part of the largest celebration of fitness worldwide. Oh, and the Open workouts will also be the workout of the day in class for each Friday, so you will most likely be doing them anyways - might as well sign up!

Friday Night Lights - Complete with Dinner, Sponsors, and Prizes

On the Friday of each week, we will host a community workout at RARE CrossFit, AKA Friday Night Lights. This provides a fantastic opportunity to come together as a community and celebrate the progress we have all made at RARE CrossFit. The atmosphere at Friday Night Lights is something that cannot be matched.

At FNL you can expect various vendors, delicious food catered from local businesses, beverages of both the adult and non-adult kind, awesome music, tons of fitness, and copious amounts of PR's and high fives - basically the ABC's of a good time.

We are headed to BDubs, otherwise known as Buffalo Wild Wings, after this weeks Friday Night Lights action for your post workout fun!


Title Sponsor - Win an Apple Watch!

We are pleased to welcome Gabe Miccio, owner at Experimac Fredericksburg, as our title sponsor for the 2019 CrossFit Open.
