CrossFit will offer four options for people wishing to compete in the Open: Prescribed (Rx’d), Scaled, Foundations and Equipment-Free.
The prescribed and scaled options are the usual two categories of the Open. New for 2021 are the foundations, equipment-free and adaptive divisions.
Athletes competing from home also have two options to compete in the CrossFit Open: basic equipment and equipment-free. The equipment option requires athletes to have access to:
- A dumbbell
- A barbell and plates
- A plyo box
- A jump rope
- A pull-up location
Athletes completing workouts as prescribed will be ranked the highest, followed by scaled athletes, foundation athletes and ultimately equipment-free athletes.
Athletes may finish the Open with any combination of foundations, scaled, prescribed, or equipment-free events contributing to their score on the CrossFit Games Leaderboard, yet each category will have its own leaderboard and an athlete needs to compete all events in one category to be featured in its leaderboard.
The details: FallOut CrossFit will host the Open workouts every Friday night beginning March 12th @ 4:00 pm. The gym will not be offering a regular class schedule on March 12, 19, & 26 for the evening session from 4-6:30 pm. If you are participating in the Open, you do not need to register for a class on the 12, 19, & 26th – just show up from 4-6:30 pm. If are not participating in the Open, please find an alternative time to workout. Only those signed up and attending the scheduled Open workouts on Friday night will be judged and validated – NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are unable to attend Friday nights, you may opt for the at-home versions.
Please note, due to limited capacity of Phase 2 COVID restrictions, we may be utilizing outdoor space as a viewing area. Please remember masks and social distancing.
