I’m thrilled to announce the 2017 Foundry Open, a community-wide event series exclusively for Foundry members!

Unleash your inner badass!

The Foundry Open is a five-week event series that runs concurrent to the CrossFit Games Open.  Four teams (Printers Row AM/PM and Union Station AM/PM) will compete against one another for team points to be crowned Foundry Open Champions and win the Foundry Cup!

The Foundry Open will take place each Friday between Feb 24 and March 24th.  Each week, The Foundry will host a “Friday Night Lights” event from 5-8pm rotating between both gyms.  Heats will run every 20-30 minutes.  Get your team together, root one another on, and display your best team spirit to earn points toward victory!  We want to see as many people participating as possible.

It does not matter whether you are a seasoned veteran or just started last week – anyone can contribute positively to their team in The Foundry Open.

Registration is $40 until 2/24, $50 thereafter and includes a Foundry Open Shirt, Post Open Party, and Team prizes.

Participation in the CF Games site is not required (but anyone who wishes to is welcome to do so and will have their scores validated by the gym).

How it Works:

Every member (and coach!) at the gym will be assigned to a team based on when/where you primarily train.  The more people who register for your team, the stronger your team will be!  Two team captains for each team are being assigned and will be revealed in the next few days!

Each week, teams can score points in a number of ways.  Here are some examples:

  • Attendance at the Friday Night Lights event
  • Performing a movement for the first time or achieving a new PR during a FNL workout
  • Best team spirit
  • Organizing a team meetup outside the gym
  • Working out as a team in class!

At the conclusion of the five weeks, we’ll host a post-party and award the Foundry Cup to the winning team.  This is the first year, so the winning team will have serious bragging rights in future years!
