I was very sad to hear about Dave Castro being fired from CrossFit. Although he had his quirks, he made the CrossFit Open announcements interesting. Plus, there’s no doubt the man knew his CrossFit programming. Taking CrossFit from its beginnings to where it is today is no small feat.
If there’s one constant with humanity, it’s that things change. Still, that doesn’t mean we have to like it or even accept it. All it means is that we move on from here. CrossFit will go on. The question is: will it be better or worse? Only time shall tell.

Dear Mr. Castro,
I have an idea for 18.1. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. I was wondering if you’d consider running a contest to let CrossFitters submit ideas for Open workouts and then choose one. What better way to promote the sport of CrossFit, generate more interest in the Open, and get everyone excited, involved, and have ownership in the sport.
Picture it now: You do the Open announcement at the box of the winner. You choose one athlete from the box to go against a Games athlete. What a dream come true for us average CrossFitters who will never get a chance to compete in the Games! It would be something I know I’d never forget. What a cherished memory!
This could be huge! I know, it’s more work. I get that. Still, what do you think? Could we give it a go? After all, you’ll never know unless you try. And not knowing is worse than failing.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
