THE OPEN IS FOR ANYONE
As CrossFit say themselves… “The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is the largest fitness competition on Earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. Here, athletes like you, from all around the world, show up and push themselves further than they ever thought possible over a five-week period. Challenges, PRs and the unknown await.”
IT IS SUITABLE FOR ALL FITNESS LEVELS
As with our daily workouts, there is always an option to scale; since 2015 there has been a scaled division in the Open. So, no matter what level you are, each workout can be scaled to suit you, yet still lets you compete. This also applies to specific teens and masters categories. The scales might mean lighter bar or dumbbell weights, bear crawls in place of handstand walks, or jumping chest to bar pull ups instead of muscle ups. You will still get the chance to workout, compete, enjoy the community atmosphere and measure your scores against others of your level (if you want).
