The Open Is Upon Us

STAGE 1: The Open
The CrossFit Games stand alone as the ultimate test of fitness. No test, regardless of its lofty claims, can grant legitimate title to the best without first providing access to all.

The Games season begins with the online Open. Registration is open to all comers. All you need is $20, access to basic equipment commonly found in CrossFit affiliates, and the will to compete in the five-week, five-workout competition.

More than 272,000 people from around the globe competed in 2015. As the largest CrossFit community event of the season, the Open ties together athletes from within the same gym to those in their broader city, country and world. 

For five weeks, you—and the hundreds of thousands of other people who signed up—are at the whim of the Director of the Games Dave Castro, taking on workouts that may push you to learn a new skill, improve the skills you already have, or go into a darker place than you’ve ever been before.
