The Liftoff consists of performing the Olympic Lifts for a one-rep max and performing one “GPP” or General Physical Preparedness workout (a CrossFit-type metcon). Like the CrossFit Open, you register online and record your scores online. You can do the Liftoff in your gym. Unlike every other CrossFit competition, the Liftoff has weight classes.
