This edition of “Virtuosity” features the CrossFit Games Open, in which hundreds of thousands of people test their fitness every year.

The Open is a special time for CrossFit athletes, but it doesn’t come without some trepidation as people challenge themselves to beat previous records and achieve new levels of fitness.

In “Every Rep a Victory,” Jillian Sharp explains the fear she felt before Open Workout 15.2, as well as the sense of accomplishment she got after she put 6 reps on the scoresheet. Sharp talks about many of the elements that make the Open special: kind words from a coach, ardent support from friends and fellow box members, and pride that comes from being better than last year.

CrossFit Inc. is sending Sharp US$500 for sharing her story with us, and her affiliate, CrossFit Fayetteville in Arizona, will receive a $500 gift card from Rogue Fitness.
