Are you ready?
The Open is coming and you still have time to be part of the worldwide CrossFit experience.
If you are unfamiliar with the Open, it’s time to get acquainted.
The CrossFit Open is the annual 5-week Online Qualifier competition during which CrossFit enthusiasts and athletes from around the globe have the opportunity to compete and see where they stack in comparison to thousands of others on both the worldwide and Regional Leaderboard.
At the end of the 5-weeks, the top finishing 20 athletes (male/female), as well as top 20 teams, in each Region, are then invited to participate in their Regional competition later this spring.
From there, five men, five women and five teams at each Regional, will earn a spot to compete at the “big show”: the Reebok CrossFit Games, held at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. in July.
On February 26, the 5th annual CrossFit Open kicks off with the announcement of Open WOD 15.1.
Never been part of the Open?
There’s no time like the present.
New this year: Both RX and Scaled Divisions, as well as a Teen’s Division.
If you’ve ever been hesitant to sign up for the Open because you were unsure if you could hang with all the movements—now’s your chance with the Scaled Division to give it a shot and feel the fun adrenaline rush that only a competition like the Open can bring. Even if you are not a competitor, and have no intention of ever being one, there is something about the Open that gives you a sense of accomplishment for facing the fun and grueling workouts each and every week, while bonding with CrossFitters from around the world who equally share your accomplishment and feel your ‘pain’.
