2012 Crossfit Open

The 2012 Crossfit Open begins on February 22, roughly one week away!  Following is a brief description of what the Crossfit Open, Regionals and Games is. (From the Crossfit Games site)

"The CrossFit Games season is a three-stage test of fitness. It is comprised of the Open, Regionals, and the world championship, the CrossFit Games.
The season kicks off with the Open, the most inclusive competition in the world. The top athletes and teams in each region from the Open will move onto Regionals. The best athletes and teams at Regionals will compete at the CrossFit Games from July 13-15, the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™."

Individual Men and Women

"On July 15, 2012 we will crown the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth. They will have outperformed every other athlete at the Games after qualifying through both the Regionals and worldwide Open.
In order to identify the Fittest, we invite everyone in the world to compete in the Open, register here. Each week from February 22-March 25, an Open workout is posted and everyone does it. They have the choice to have their performance validated at a CrossFit affiliate, or submit a videotape of their performance to the Games website. The Open will consist of five workouts over five weeks.
The Open’s top 60 athletes in each region move on to the second stage of the competition, Regionals. Each Regional will be a three-day competition. Seventeen Regional competitions, covering the entire world will take place each weekend from April 27 to May 27. At the Regional level, individuals are judged, reps are counted for each workout. No more than three men and three women will advance to the third and final stage of the competition – the CrossFit Games at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The 2012 Games will run from July 13-15."
