The week’s workout is released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PT. Each time a workout is released, athletes will be given two versions: Rx’d and Scaled. With reduced loading or less challenging movements, the Scaled option will be designed to be accessible to the vast majority of athletes who train in CrossFit affiliates. Rx’d will challenge the world’s elite.

The workout write-up, movement standards, explanation video, and scorecards will all be published on Games.CrossFit.com. Review the standards before you start.

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.

There are many ways to excel in the Open. The Open will determine the fittest man and woman in each U.S. state, Canadian province, Australian territory and country worldwide. CrossFit will also use the Open to find the fittest in the military, emergency medical services, firefighting and law enforcement.

The Open is also the first stage of a three-stage season that culminates in the CrossFit Games. The world’s fittest men, women, teams, teenagers (14-17) and masters (40+) will compete for the chance to advance in the season, with the ultimate goal of making it on the world stage at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, this July.

However, 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 suffering through 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.
