What is the CrossFit Open?

Q. What is the CrossFit Games Open?
A. Whether you compete for fun, to prove your fitness, to represent your affiliate, or all of the above, the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is for you. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of this five-week online competition that unites the CrossFit community by bringing together hundreds of thousands of athletes in one all-inclusive competition. The CrossFit Games Open is the time to see how we perform compared to other CrossFitters around the world. That’s incredible.
The Open is comprised of five workouts over five weeks starting February 23rd. The Open is the first qualifying stage of the CrossFit Games. While the purpose of the Open is to find the fittest athletes in each region to move on to the regionals, it’s also an opportunity for any athlete at any level to participate in the competition.
Even if you are a complete beginner, you can participate in the Open. Every Open workout will feature a scaled workout option that even the newest CrossFitter can perform. Think of this Open as an opportunity to set a performance baseline for CrossFit. We promise you will be amazed at your progress if you continue with CrossFit training and retest the following year!
