6 Reasons You Owe It To Yourself To Do The Intramural Open This Year!
1. The Experience!
When was the last time you have gotten together with people you may just have met, or are long time friends with, dressed up and performed some workout, and then watched and cheered on others as they do the same. It sounds a bit silly but it is SO fun! This is an opportunity to put yourself out there, do something out of your comfort zone and have the support of other team members doing the same thing! Every workout and movement will be scalable, making it challenging but not
2. Meet your fellow Targhee Athletic athletes.
We all know this is so much more than just a gym. We get to know each other. We make friends. We cheer for each others by name. But what about the members on opposite schedules from yours? Get to know the early risers, the night owls, the weekend warriors. Friday Night Lights is basically one big mixer, chock full of all the people with whom you share at least one very key interest.
3. Break through mental and physical barriers.
Can't do double unders? Never touched your toes to a bar before? Get ready to astound yourself. The Open has a way of drawing us out of our self-imposed shells and showing us what we're truly capable of. Plus, there's no cherry picking at FNL. Those movements we may subconsciously--or not so subconsciously--avoid won't be denied, and being forced to face them head on can open new doors for our fitness.
4. Because you're good enough.
The beauty of the Open is that it truly is for everyone. We will make sure everyone is capable of doing the workouts with additional scaling options as needed. And trust me, the most thrilling moments of FNL--the ones that live on vividly in our memories--belong to those who achieve their first pull up, double under, T2B, or who had the best costume.
5. It just might inspire you--or you might inspire others.
No matter which end of the fitness spectrum you currently find yourself on, I guarantee that if you show up and pour your all into the week's WOD, people will notice. You may find yourself with your very own cheering section. Friday Night Lights is further proof that we WANT each other to succeed, and that success is measured on a scale completely unique to each of us.
6. This is a journey, and we're on it together.
Plus, if your team wins you get a private team BBQ...maybe we can convince Chef Jon to cook!
