What is the CrossFit Open?

The CrossFit Open is the largest fitness competition on Earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. In the Open, athletes like you, from all around the world, show up and push themselves further than they ever thought possible for one workout a week for three weeks. Challenges, PRs, and the unknown await.

While it is the first round of competition on the path to the CrossFit Games for the fittest men and women in the world, the Open is for ALL CrossFitters with divisions for ALL levels including Foundations for beginners, Scaled, Rx, Teens, Masters, and Adaptive.  Whether you love competing or just love the community, the Open is for you.

The Open is three weeks with one workout per week.  It starts on March 11th and goes until March 29th.  CrossFit will announce a workout on each Thursday evenings and you will have until Monday at 5pm to come into First City and complete the workout and post your score online.

You can also complete the workout by going to another CrossFit affiliate (call or email in advance) or videotaping yourself doing the workout and upload it.

Friday Night Lights!

We will once again be doing the Open workouts as a gym on Friday nights! Come complete the Open workout, help judge, and/or cheer on your fellow athletes. Heats start after 5pm. Sign up for a heat time at shortly after the announcement.

If Friday night does not work for you, you are always welcome to do the workout any other time from Thursday when it is announced to Monday before 2pm. The Open workout will be the workout of the day on Fridays during the Open. If you wish to do it at another time, please coordinate with us by emailing to ensure that there is someone available to judge for you.

Warming up

There will not be group warm-ups led by a coach. Each week, there will be a warm-up written up on the whiteboard for you to do on your own that will take approximately 10 minutes. There will be a review of the movement standards for judges and athletes 5 minutes before the workout. Make sure you arrive with enough time (at least 15 minutes) to warm-up sufficiently BEFORE your heat start time.

Judges and Judging

If you are officially signed up for the CrossFit Open, you MUST have a judge during your workout. We will also likely need you to be a judge for someone else. You and your judge MUST BOTH know and adhere to the movement standards. It is YOUR job to meet the movement standards. It is your judges job to tell you if you are not meeting them and tell you why or how you are not meeting them. There is a link below to the movement standards for each workout. We will review the movement standards with athletes and judges a few minutes before the start of each heat.


You and your judge are responsible for making sure that your scoresheet is filled out properly and completely. First City cannot validate scores without a matching scoresheet that is filled out correctly and completely. Athletes should make sure that their score is on the top and bottom portion and remove the bottom portion to take home with them. The top portion of the completed scoresheet must be put in the folder on the front desk.

Submitting Your Score

You must submit your score online by logging into the CrossFit Games app or by going to Submit your score as soon as possible. Do not wait. Don’t forget.

How do I sign up?

To sign up, go to and click on Register (you may need to scroll down).  The cost is $20. Officially signing up is NOT required.  You can still complete the workouts, but you will not be able to upload your score and see how you rank.
