The CrossFit Open is one of the best times of year at CrossFit Hampton Roads. Seriously. It’s a time when athletes come together to workout, refocus on their fitness goals, cheer one another on, test their limits, and create new goals for the following year.
No matter your current fitness level or length of time doing CrossFit, there is so much to be gained from participating in The Open.
This year, I want to see as many people participate as possible!
What is the CrossFit Open?
The 2023 CrossFit Games Open is a three-week competition open to anyone. Competitors are given one workout to complete each week and submit their scores online.
New to this? Don’t panic. Keep reading.
Can I still compete if I have to scale workouts?
Yes! There’s are Scaled, Foundation, and Adaptive divisions as well age brackets for Teens and Masters. The Open serves as a fantastic test of fitness but also a pathway to grow and add fitness to the bank over years and years. Yes, there is scaling, and we highly encourage you to participate in whatever division gets you to sign-up.
