The CrossFit Open is a three-week online competition that brings together athletes around the world. It marks the start of the CrossFit season and is the first step towards qualifying to the CrossFit Games.

The Open is the largest participatory sporting event in the world and athletes from all ability levels and backgrounds complete three workouts over three weeks. The event brings the CrossFit community together and is a time of personal bests.

All CrossFit Open workouts are released on a Thursday at 5pm PST and scores must be submitted by the following Monday. CrossFit will announce the workouts live, and the reveal will be followed by two top athletes throwing down head-to-head.

The 2021 CrossFit Open is the most inclusive Open to date. In addition to the usual RX and Scaled divisions, CrossFit has added Foundations and Equipment Free divisions, as well as eight adaptive divisions.

The CrossFit Open kicked off on March 11 and runs until March 29.
