The CrossFit Open is upon us again! Join the BRC family as we attack it in STYLE.
WHAT IS THE CROSSFIT OPEN/FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS? - The Open is comprised of 5 workouts over 5 weeks, and BRC will be doing it together as a fam every Friday Night!
While the purpose of the Open is to find the fittest athletes in the world, it’s also an opportunity for any athlete at ANY level to participate in the global competition. It can add meaning and purpose to your training while also bringing our gym’s community closer together.
Every affiliate on the planet will take part in the Open!
"WHAT ABOUT ME? I’VE ONLY BEEN DOING CROSSFIT FOR TWO WEEKS!" - Even if you are a complete beginner (yes, those of you who just finished On-Ramp, even), you can participate in the Open! Every Open workout will feature a scaled workout option.
Every Friday, Team Blue will have a themed Friday Night Lights party and complete the Open WOD together. Whether you're signed up for the Open or not, we invite ALL of you to come work out with us and/or cheer everyone on!
FNL Schedule (Held Every Friday from 4:30-7pm):
- 19.1 Theme TBD
- 19.2 80's Day
- 19.3 Prom Night
- 19.4 Day of the Dead
- 19.5 Beer, Burgers, and Blue
We'll have our Halloween party after 19.4, and Burgers will be on the grill during 19.5 - come with your BRC shirts (or wear blue!). Just bring a side dish and beverage to share! Looking forward to WODing with you all!
The CrossFit Open is upon us again! Join the BRC family as we attack it in STYLE.
Terry Fox is a legendary Canadian, though less known in the US. After having his leg amputated from cancer, he decided to run from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, on one leg, in an effort to raise money for cancer research. Since then over $750M has been raised in his name.
A BRC friend of ours, Dave-who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer himself, and who has lost his mom and best friend- organizes the Santa Monica chapter of this run and Blue Republic will be joining him!
We will not have class that day in order to get as many of you out there to support this great cause.

BRC heads to the trails of Castaic Lake for the L.A. Spartan Sprint!
If you'd like to step out of your comfort zone and try something new: sign up with team BRC! Click the link below to register for Saturday 12/7 and chose the 8:45am heat.

Make sure you "Join an existing team" and type in Blue Republic CrossFit.
People of Blue Republic! BRC's 2 year anniversary is coming up and we want to thank all of our members for making this such a truly incredible place to workout and meet friends.
We will have drinking, dancing, and karaoke (Bron is taking requests now!) For those that remember our NYE Party (or maybe just the parts before the shots lol), she smashed "Africa".
It will be potluck style, so please bring a small dish and your favorite beverage to share!
Come in your finest attire as this will be a glam event (please no jeans or t shirts).
SAVE THE DATE and we'll see you there!

This competition is doable for EVERYONE; from those who just walked through our doors, to seasoned athletes.
There will be 2 divisions: RX and Scaled. Female and Male partner teams. ONLY $30 per person to sign up!
If you have any concern as to whether or not you do the workouts or need scaling options speak with one of the coaches. Again, ANYBODY can do this, including BodyBurners.
Once you sign up, get your friends and family to come and watch you kick some booty. We are asking for a $5 spectator optional donation at the door.
If, after all this trying to convince you to sign up isn't working, we would still like some volunteers to judge, organize, and help set up! Plus, we'd still want to see you for our Holiday Potluck after.

If you would like to sign up but don't know of a partner, let Leti at the front desk know and she can pair you up with someone who's in the same situation! OR You can ask someone in our BRC Facebook Group. If you're not in there yet, ask us to add you!
