These CrossFit Legends Want to Give You Pep Talks for the Open

And just like that, it’s back again!

Welcome to the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games Open.

For those who have been #InTheOpen in years past, you know what’s in store. These next five weeks will test our engines, strength and mental capacity in ways many of us never imagined workouts could.

For those new to the Open, you are about to go to a ‘dark place.’ Get ready.

Easier said than done? We know the feeling! That’s why we’ve rounded up a few of the most experienced CrossFit athletes out there to help talk you through this. 

For each of the next five weeks, a different legend of the sport will be here with a quick pep talk to get you psyched up to take on that week’s workout.

Austin Malleolo’s 18.4 Pep Talk

Ben Smith’s 18.3 Pep Talk

Camille Leblanc-Bazinet’s 18.2 Pep Talk

Rich Froning’s 18.1 Pep Talk

Check back to this page next week for an 18.5 pep talk. Until then, it’s not too late to register for the Open or shop the official CrossFit Open collection. Did you sign up?
