The Crossfit Open – Register today!
The Open is comprised of five workouts over five weeks, and it starts with 18.1. Open workouts are identified by their year and the order in which they appear.
The workouts will be released every Friday 1am GMT (Thursday at 5pm PT), and you can watch the live announcement of the workout on the CrossFit Games website. After the workout is released, any athlete who has registered for the Open will have until 1am on the following Tuesday (Monday 5pm PT) to submit their best score online (you can do the workout as many times as you like and just submit your best score). Scores can be verified in our CrossFit 1871 box by the Coaches or by submitting your workout via video online!
Over the 5 weeks, all Friday’s 1871 WODs will be the Open workouts. Everyone taking part will not only have the chance to compete with the rest of the box, but also the rest of the CrossFit world.
Why sign up?
Adding a little competition is a great way to push yourself further in a workout to achieve the best results possible – you may even learn a little something about yourself! The Open informs our coaches on tailoring the programme in the future for the majority. This ensures each member will be able to hit the basic movement patterns.
The best part of the Open is the ability to scale each workout, allowing everyone regardless of ability, to compete against the rest of the world. It is also the perfect opportunity to start re-tracking your progress. Results will be available on your profile for years to come alongside a record of your fitness and performance improvements over time.
How do I register?
Visit the CrossFit Games sign-in page and enter your existing CrossFit ID (Please note you will need to create an account if you don’t already have an ID). Select your division and agree to the competition rules and waiver.
The registration fee is approx. £15 ($20) which goes towards the cost of running the competition.
To complete your registration, first join your affiliate (CrossFit 1871) and then select your affiliate’s team (CrossFit 1871). You must select your team before the conclusion of 18.1.
