New To CrossFit? Here's What You Need To Know About The OPEN
The 2023 CrossFit Games Open is the largest fitness competition on earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. Here, athletes like you, from all around the world, show up and push themselves further than they ever thought possible over a 3-week period. Challenges, PRs and the unknown await. Every year, thousands of athletes come together to compete in the worldwide, online competition. After 3 weeks, the top men and women qualify for the next leg of competition CrossFit Games.
People of all ages and ability levels can play, Rx’d or Scaled in the Open. There are age categories that fairly separate athletes and also scaled or RX'd prescribed workout.
