CrossFit HQ has just announced the first workout of the 2016 CrossFit Open will be announced from NorCal CrossFit in Santa Clara, California, on Thursday, February 25, with Chyna Cho and Emily Abbott to go head to head.

At 5PM (PT) the Director of the Games Dave Castro will reveal Open Workout 16.1 to the crowds, effectively kicking off the 2016 ‘CrossFit’ season.
