The Open is a once in year experience of competing with your friends, celebrating victories, and embracing all the CrossFit has to offer. The Open is an opportunity to challenges yourself, push your limits, and see how much you have improved. It only comes around once a year, and it’s not to be missed. The Open features three scalings, so athletes at all levels can compete and enjoy the Open experience. Your ticket helps cover some of the costs with judging, event planning, and additional time required to plan and host the open.

Sand & Steel Trail Returns Sundays at 10AM (leave from the gym)

For those of you in our Weight Loss Challenge and worried about eating a couple extra calories at brunch, Sand & Steel will be leading 4-7 mile trail runs at 12PM. These will be recovery, base building runs for those of you who haven’t been running much over the winter. For those of you training for Spartan Races, the back-to-back experience is exactly the kind of training you need for the Spartan Race. Build the capacity for upper body training and running on the same day. As a bonus, by structuring our runs on Sunday after the Open, you don’t need to worry about being sore going into the Open.

Top 10 Concerns New Members Have About Signing up for the Open

  1. Myth 1: I am not in good enough shape. The CrossFit Open features beginner and intermediate scalings. The Open is deliberately designed so that all members can do it.
  2. Myth 2: I can’t do handstand walks, muscle-ups, etc. Again, advanced techniques like this only apply to the Rx scaling. You will have appropriate alternatives available to you.
  3. Myth 3: I am just doing CrossFit for my health. Community is a big part of why CrossFit works. Being part of a community helps you improve your mental and emotional health. People that participate in community events get better results and are more satisfied with their experience.
  4. Myth 4: I can’t win the Open. That’s probably true, but you shouldn’t worry about winning. You should think of the Open as motivation to train this year and the next. It’s the same reason people register for a race. People run to get into shape, they signup for races for additional motivation to run.
  5. Myth 5: The Open is too hard. The Open is only as hard as you make it. Running a 5K can be very easy or very hard depending on how hard you push it.
  6. Myth 6: I’m not competitive. The Open isn’t about competing with anyone. It’s about working together a community and supporting each other’s successes. You are part of a community and you should be here to support your friends.  Start paying it forward and supporting others, and you’ll find CrossFit will pay you back 10-fold.
  7. Myth 7: It’s too expensive. Really?  Sand & Steel dedicates about 60 hours collectively to prepare and host the open. We pay for a judge’s course every year to be qualified to judge the Open. We pay our own registration fees to compete in the Open as well. We host the Open for you – so you can experience everything that is special and wonderful about the Open and the Community. 95% of members who signed up the Open last year, are already signed up this year. It’s 10 bucks for the best 3 weeks of CrossFit you’ll experience all year.
  8. Myth 8: I can’t commit to coming 3 times. The Open is hosted everywhere if you are traveling during the Open. Plus, let’s be honest, it’s unlikely you can’t make Friday nights or Sunday mornings. If you really can’t come to one of the classes, you can upload a video of your workout to
  9. Myth 9: I’m not ready to do the Open. Everyone can do the Open. Truth is, you’ll always feel like you aren’t ready. You can always be in better shape. I feel that way too. I should be better at cleans, better at bar muscle-ups. I’m slow on burpees and slow on box jumps.  SO WHAT? I will do the best that I can. I know that I have a whole team of people doing it with me. My friends will be there to congratulate me and celebrate with me afterwards. That’s the magic of the Open and that’s why I do it year after year. You should too!
  10. Myth 10: It’s just not for me. What do you mean “it’s not for you?” Having fun is not for you? Working out is not for you? Supporting your friends is not for you? You joined CrossFit precisely for the same reasons that we host Open. It’s 100% for you!

The Open is a magical time of year for the CrossFit community, uniting affiliates all over the world as we persevere through each workout and celebrate every success — big or small — along the way.

  • Just want to have FUN? You’re in the right place.

Whatever your reasons are, participating in the Open not only shows support for the larger CrossFit community, but it builds up our unique affiliate community, too. When you sign up for this global event, you’ll inspire others to do so, too, pointing us all in a direction of improved fitness.

Taking on new challenges, pushing your limits, and testing your fitness are big parts of CrossFit, and there’s no better chance to do all three than the CrossFit Games Open.

The CrossFit Open 2023 is For Everyone!

When people think of the CrossFit Games they think of men and women that are in impossibly good shape doing workouts that are not even approachable by most people.  The CrossFit Open isn’t like that.  Yes the Rx variations are very challenging (with complex techniques like muscle-ups and double unders.)  However, CrossFit provides scaling based on age (so those of us other 40 or even 30 get an easier version.)  Additionally with the addition of the foundations class, everyone will be able to participate.
