Over the course of five weeks, we will complete five WODs at FOCF in conjunction with the rest of the world!

The first Open workout will be released on Thursday, Feb. 26. As in previous years, the Open will be a five-week competition with one new workout per week. The week’s workout will be released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PT, and competitors will have four days to complete the workout and log their score on the Games site. Score submissions will be due before 5 p.m. PT on the Monday following the workout’s release.

Scaled Open Workouts

The Open takes place in garages and affiliates around the world, with athletes of all levels. For the first time, scaled versions of the week’s Open workout will be available so athletes can choose the programming that best matches their abilities.

Each Thursday, when the Open workout is released, athletes will be able to go onto the Games site to see their division’s prescribed version of the workout and their division’s scaled version of the workout.

As in the CrossFit Team Series, scaled workout will have specified standards for each movement. Athletes who opt for the scaled version will need to meet our movement standards and other requirements, and cannot scale or modify further.

The intent of the scaled workouts is to allow everyone who wants to compete, to compete at an appropriate level. Choosing the scaled version of the workout one week will not prevent an athlete from doing the next workout as prescribed. Those athletes who choose to do all five Open workouts scaled will be visible on the Scaled Leaderboard, where they can compete with their peers.

The scaled workouts are not for anyone who’s fighting to advance to the next stage of the CrossFit Games season. One rep of the prescribed version of the workout will be ranked ahead of the best score of the scaled version of the workout—we want to celebrate and reward the hard-earned first-ever chest-to-bar pull-ups, double-unders and snatch PRs. If you cannot get one rep of the prescribed version of the workout, or simply find the scaled workout more appropriate for you, you’ll be able to opt for scaled. You’ll stay on the overall Leaderboard, but pick up more points.

Athletes who scale a workout will be removed from contention from regionals and the Masters Qualifier. Since team scores are calculated based on total reps and total time for the best six scores from the team, scaled workouts will not count toward the team division.

We hope the new scaled workouts will allow more CrossFit athletes to participate in one of the largest community events of the year, and post an official record of their fitness they can return to over time and try to beat.

New Teenage Division

The Games has added a teenage division for athletes who are between 14 and 17 years old as of the close of score submissions for Open Workout 15.1.

The teenage division will have an overall Leaderboard showing all athletes between 14 and 17 years old who have not elected to compete with adult men and women. The teens will perform a different version of the Open workout than the adult male and female competitors. The winners of the teenage division will be crowned after the fifth and final week of the Open.

All athletes between 14 and 17 will automatically be entered into the teenage division. Teens who want to be in the running for regionals—as a team or individual competitor—must change their division by emailing support@crossfitgames.com before the end of score submissions for Open Workout 15.1.

An athlete must be at least 14 years old in order to register for the Open. See the Rulebook for complete information.

The Masters Qualifier will begin on Thursday, April 23. The world’s top 200 masters athletes in each age division in the Open will be automatically entered into the Masters Qualifier. Like last year, the qualifier will be a four-day online competition. The workouts will be released at 5 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 23, and the competitors will have until 5 p.m. PT on Monday, April 27, to submit their scores. The top 20 athletes in each age division at the end of the qualifier will be invited to compete in the Masters Competition at the CrossFit Games.

The Regional competitions will be held over three weekends in May. The 17 regions in the Open will feed into eight Regional competitions. The top athletes in each region will face top athletes from at least one other region in the new format. Each Regional will take place over three days, and the top five men, five women, and five teams at the end of the weekend will qualify for the CrossFit Games.
