The OPEN is a online WORLD competition with numerous options for each workout, making it easy to find a place where you can be challenged based on your current CrossFit level with us! Here are some of the online divisions you can choose from: 

  • Rx’d - Do the workouts as written. This is the most challenging option, yet many individuals have moved from scaled to Rx’d as they progress from year to year.

  • Age Groups - There are nine age group divisions offering Rx'd and scaled versions of the workouts for teenage athletes aged 14-17 as well as masters athletes ages 35+.

  • Adaptive - The adaptive divisions offer equally challenging workouts modified for athletes with a significant, permanent impairment. These divisions include Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity, Seated With Hip Function, Neuromuscular, and more.

  • Scaled - Not quite ready to tackle the workouts as written? No problem. The scaled division offers classic scaling options for many of CrossFit’s common gymnastics movements and includes lighter loading.  

  • Foundations - Just started CrossFit or maybe this is your first Open? The foundations workouts are a great place to start.
