Is your gym ready for the Open?

It is that time of the year again! The 2017 CrossFit Open starts this Thursday night. Are you ready?

As a former gym manager, I know how stressful it can be to manage the Open. Starting with the Open WOD announcement on Thursday night, there is a small window of time to coordinate equipment, judges and a timeline to give your athletes the full Open experience.

Luckily, Wodify’s Class Builder can make your Friday Night Lights run as efficiently as possible!

Use Wodify’s Class Builder to Schedule Heats for the CrossFit Open - Wodify allows you to create one-off classes that will run as heats throughout the night. Your athletes will be able to reserve and sign-in to heats ahead of time using the Wodify app to keep the Open running smoothly at your gym.

Box management made simple.

To get started, follow these quick and easy steps or watch the video below:

  • Click on Classes and scroll to Lists and then new New Class
  • Enter the Basic Details of the class
  • Set the heat length to 20 - 30 minutes depending on the length of the WOD
  • Set the ‘Class Limit’ to however many athletes you can judge at a time
  • Repeat this process for as many heats as you need


Scheduling heats for your Friday Night Lights event week by week is a breeze with Wodify. If you would like any further assistance setting this up in your system, feel free to contact our support team at!
