The CrossFit Games is a global competition to find the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth. Each year, anyone can test their fitness during the Open competition. The Open is a five-week competition where participants complete one workout per week and receive a score that ranks them among their region and worldwide. After the Open, the top individual athletes and top teams qualify for Regionals. Our regional qualifier is March 8-10 in Chicago. Click here for details about the CrossFit Games.
While the Open’s primary purpose is to find the fittest people in the world, it also serves to unite the worldwide CrossFit community, where hundreds of thousands of people can test themselves and see where they stack up. Workouts are programmed so most people can participate and receive a score. Not sure whether the Open is for you? Ask around with your fellow athletes or coaches. Most will tell you it’s a fun experience that helps focus your training and makes you feel more connected with your CrossFit community.
We structure the Open for ease of participation. Each Friday, starting on February 28, we will host a competition style event with judges and heats, and participants will all complete the week’s Open workout in front of a supportive crowd. Those who cannot attend on Friday can complete the Open workout during any class time or open gym each Sunday.
