CrossFit Open Pre-Season – Sweat Shop vs. CrossFit Walnut Creek – Starts Thurs. Jan. 11th

Mel participating in the 2014 CrossFit Open Preseason against CrossFit Walnut Creek

With the 2018 CrossFit Open right around the corner, we have setup another year of our Preseason Open workouts with CrossFit Walnut Creek.  This is just a fun way to get in some of the past CrossFit Open workouts, in preparation for the upcoming Open.  Just like the past few years, we’ll alternate weeks between our location and CrossFit Walnut Creek’s locations (they just opened up their second location in Concord, at the former location of CrossFit Redux).

If there are some dates that work for you, and others that don’t, or some workouts look fun, and others not so much, don’t sweat it!  You can do as many or as few as you like, and as always, the workouts can be scaled to fit your ability!
