The CrossFit Open

The CrossFit Open is the world’s premier test of fitness. Since 2011, the five-week five-workout online competition has accurately ranked the fitness of thousands of competitors.

Held in CrossFit affiliates and garage gyms, The Open is designed to be accessible to all athletes while rigorous enough to challenge the world’s fittest. Fourteen-year-old high school freshmen compete in the Open, as well as their 77-year-old grandparents and everyone in between.

Sign up for $20, do the workouts, enter your scores, and you will be ranked in relation to your peers in your age division, competition region, state and country.

Workouts are released online each Thursday and athletes have until the following Monday to submit their scores.

It all starts February 23, 2017.


Registration: January 12 – Feb. 27, 2017

Each week at Thursday at 5 p.m. PT, the workout write-up, movement standards, explanation video, and scorecards will all be published on Games.CrossFit.com.  Each time a workout is released, athletes will be given two versions: Rx’d and Scaled.  With reduced loading or modified movements, the Scaled option will be designed to be accessible to the vast majority of athletes who train in CrossFit.

You can complete the workouts at a participating CrossFit affiliate in front of a judge, or film your performance from anywhere you want and submit a link as proof.

Make sure to submit your score before score submissions close each Monday at 5 p.m. PT. Late submissions will not be accepted.

The Open is  the first stage of a three-stage season that culminates in the CrossFit Games. The world’s fittest men, women, teams, teenagers and masters will compete for the chance to advance in the season, with the ultimate goal of making it on the world stage at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin this August.

For most people The Open is not about trying to earn a title or qualify for the next stage of the CrossFit Games season. It’s about joining the global CrossFit community in a celebration of fitness for a few weeks each year. To connect to others in your box as well as those a world apart through the experience of conquering the same workout at the same time. It lets you revel at the strength and skills you’ve developed over the past year, and learn what you need to improve.
