The Open is over, now what?

April 12, 2016
This may have been a question a lot of you were asking post-CrossFit Open 2017. You aren't the only one. Now is a time to reflect on your year and decide what's next for you in your journey of fitness. It's almost as if some of us were so focused and zoned in during the Open season, and now that it's over we're wondering what to do next.
