The 2023 CrossFit Games OPEN

As CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman said: “The magic is in the movement, the art is in the programming, the science is in the explanation, and the fun is in the community.” 

The Open is an expression of this quote in practical application. It represents the opportunity to be part of something bigger, to spark inspiration, to find motivation to move a little bit faster, to learn a new skill, to go a little bit heavier, and to pay a little more attention to your repetitions and the quality of your movement. You have the opportunity to care a little more about the people around you, to be invested in something more than your own workout, and to be invested in everyone else’s successes and triumphs in addition to your own. 

Sign up today at games.CrossFit.com and then add your name to the list at the gym!!! We will draft teams for our intramural open in a week! So sign up soon!

Congratulations Jeff!!! 

Jeff took home a first place finish at Wodapalooza this weekend! 
...in the Scaled Men’s Division of Wodapalooza 2023.

We are so proud of your dedication and hard work!

Take a look at this message he's sending to our community! 

To my CrossFit KOP family and friends,

I wanted to take a few hours to truly let this past weekends experience sink in and even now words escape me. I came to you on a Monday at the end of February 2018 when my first gym closed feeling a bit lost and a little nervous. It was like taking your first CrossFit class all over again… a unfamiliar place and with unfamiliar faces. 

I knew very shortly that KOP was different when Mike Roth asked me if I wanted to partner in warmup that first class. Mike and I are still friends to this day and not a week goes by where we don’t chat. Fast forward 5 years and I’m still grateful for that day, the impression you all made on me, and to still be a part of this family. The gym has been through so much over the 15 years it’s existed and it… WE are still here. It proves that we are resilient, strong, and adaptable as one and I’m proud to be part of that. 

Aimee has truly made something rare and precious. She’s taken “misfits” and games athletes alike and made each of is feel like we are all someone special and for that I am forever grateful to her and you all.

CrossFit has been a part of my life for nearly 10 years… 10 YEARS… And in that decade I’ve competed in countless competitions always landing just short of standing at the top of a podium. It wasn’t until King and Queen of 2022 that I would win my very first CrossFit competition and less then half a year later I would get the second win of my life, the Scaled Men’s Division of Wodapalooza 2023.

This was my third year competing here in Miami, all three times carrying the name of CrossFit King of Prussia along side of my own. Each year I tried my hardest to make you all proud. I wanted to represent the gym and you all more than just myself. I hope I was able to do that.

This year was so different. I still really can’t describe the feeling and I’m not entirely sure I will ever be able to. I just want you all to know that you were with me each day out there on that floor, every time I felt nervous, every time my body screamed stop… you all kept me going. 

For all the hours we’ve spent together, challenging each other, pushing each other, celebrating with each other… this weekends victory is not mine alone, it’s all of ours. 

Thank you all for the support this weekend and through the years it took to get here. I couldn’t have done this without you. 





For time:
5-10-15-20-25-30-35-40-45-50-45-40-35-30-25-20-15-10-5 reps of:
Unbroken Double Unders 
(cap 20:00) 

Coaches Notes: 
The Flight Simulator is a workout that challenges you in many ways. To complete this workout as prescribed, each set of double unders must be strung. This means you must complete that many in a row without stopping. After each set, you MUST break. For example, you cannot do 30 straight and then perform 20 as your next set. You must do 5, stop, 10 stop, etc...however, you control how long you stop. If you fail any set, you must start that set over. For example, if you trip on 49 of 50, you must redo the set of 50.
