🌎 The 2022 CrossFit Open 🌏

You may have heard some members talk about it.
You may have seen Instagram or Facebook posts and articles.
You may have wondered what all that excitement and camaraderie was about.
It happens every year.Β 

It's the CrossFit OPEN! which this year starts on Feb 25.

The OPEN is the first part of a competition called the CrossFit GAMES which leads eventually to in person finals in August. Being only 3 weeks long in 2022 means there will be only 3 workouts, making it easier to take part, complete the whole thing and create a 🌏 global atmosphere by connecting to other fitness fans around the world 🌎 (especially as we cannot travel).

In 2021 some of us joined, finished all 3 weeks, and were able to compare our level of fitness with other CrossFitters around the world. Some of us just joined for the sheer fun of it and took part in one or two of the workouts, sharing our sweat and joy with the all the other fans and enthusiasts.

You can read some impressions of the Open from last year's participants here.

The CrossFit OPEN started in 2011 and is the largest participatory sporting event in the world, with more than 263,000 participants in 2021.

Masters, teen, and adaptive divisions welcome a broad group of participants; and continent-based semifinals guarantee that athletes from all areas of the world will be represented at the Games.
