The Open is upon us! What’s next?

The CrossFit Open is 5 workouts over 5 weeks that allow you to test your fitness and see how you do against every single other CrossFitter in the world that signs up. If you’re not very familiar with it, check this out for more info.

So, what does that mean for CrossFit Post Falls? First, you must sign up for the open. It’s only $20. To do that, go here.You’ve got until Monday to sign up. If you’re not sure about signing up, read this. Then go do it. Make sure you choose CrossFit Post Falls as your gym and also join our team!

The workouts are released Thursday at 5pm. We will be programming the WOD for everyone on Friday. If you come in on Friday, you’ll be doing the workout regardless. If you have signed up for the open, we will have someone counting your reps and ensuring that you’re meeting the movements standards. Friday at 6:30pm we are encouraging everyone who has signed up to come in, we will set the gym up competition style and run through the WOD in waves. Come in and cheer everyone on, even if you aren’t planning on working out or haven’t signed up for the open. The more the merrier. We’re planning on being here for a while Friday night, so BYOB for after the WOD and let’s have some fun.

So, what happens if you signed up but absolutely can’t make it in on Friday? We’ll run the open WOD directly after our normal class on Saturday. Come in around 9:30 and warm up and we’ll get you going promptly at 10am. If the above options still don’t work for you, we’ll try to get you squared away during open gym on Monday from 3:30pm to 4:30pm. If that’s the case we’ll need to plan ahead, please get with either Doug or Amy to schedule.

Let us know if you have any questions!

We offer SOFLETE (special operations forces) programming here at CrossFit Post Falls. Military has always had a soft spot in our hearts and we give back to that community in any way that we can. We are are a training facility, so naturally, training is how we are able to do that.


So, what is SOFLETE and SOFLETE programming?

SOFLETE is a group of current and former SOF (special operations forces) personnel who are also accomplished athletic coaches, combined with non-SOF experts in the fitness industry. SOFLETE was born out of necessity. As members of the community we were always posed two questions: How do we build the athletic capabilities of our bodies, as well as prevent and fix injury? The philosophy is that it’s hard to be hard and it’s hard to be smart. Push hard in big lifts and sprints and when your body tells you it’s hurt, take the time to heal. After years of pushing through minor injuries and prolonging our rehab we realized there HAD to be a better way. We’ve also learned there is more to fitness than “go run till you can’t run.” In a small team there is no such thing as “relative strength.” You’re either a strong performer, or somebody else is pulling your slack.

We offer programming for selection prep. SOF selection of any kind is no joke; if you are even thinking about SOF you must train physically and mentally for the life you may lead and you need to be training hard and smart as early as possible. Get in touch with us if you are interested in getting started!
