CrossFit Open 2024!

What is the “Open?”

The Open is an annual, online competition for CrossFit athletes around the world. It’s the largest and most inclusive fitness competition on Earth and a celebration of our CrossFit community! Participating in the Open will bring out the best of you, while you cheer on your peers and create unforgettable memories.

When is the Open?

The Open is 3 weeks long, beginning on February 29, 2024.  Every Thursday night for 3 weeks an Open workout will be posted to the Games website at 3:00pm EST. Registered athletes will have 4 days – until Monday at 8:00pm EST – to complete the workout and submit their scores.

Is the Open for me?

The Open is for EVERYONE! Each Open workout has several versions, to encourage participation of all ages, abilities, and experience levels.

  • Rx’d – For athletes that typically Rx our daily workouts
  • Scaled – For athletes that typically scale our daily workouts but are familiar with most CrossFit movements
  • Foundations – For our newest athletes
  • Age Groups – For teens (ages 14-17) and Masters 55+ (age as of July 14, 2024)
  • Adaptive – For athletes with permanent physical or intellectual impairments

Athletes can switch back and forth between Rx’d, Scaled, and Foundations each week, based on the specific workout that is announced. Those who complete all 5 workouts Rx will be ranked against other Rx athletes.

Where can I do the workouts?

If you are a member at ICA, participating in the Open is easy! We program the Open workout as our Daily WOD every Friday. All you have to do is:

  • Register for the Open ($20). Be sure to select “CrossFit Phoenixville” as your affiliate!
  • Show up to class on March 1, March 8, and March 15, and complete one of the official versions of the WOD.
  • We also run Friday Night Lights every Friday evening, starting at 5pm. Details below!
  • If you can’t make it to the gym on Friday, you can complete the workout during Open Gym on Saturday, Sunday or Monday. (Please make your own arrangements for a judge AND ensure a coach is available to oversee.)
  • Post your score to the Games website by Monday at 8pm!

Even if you don’t sign up for the Open, you are welcome and encouraged to attend Friday class and complete the workout as a normal Daily WOD!

  • Workout 24.1 – March 1
  • Workout 24.2 – March 8
  • Workout 24.3 – March 15

Friday Night Lights!

On Friday evenings during the Open, we’ll turn up the energy, blast the music, and throw down with our ICA Fit Fam at “Friday Night Lights.” Starting at 5:00pm, we’ll run heats of the Open workout until everyone has finished. Even if you complete the workout earlier in the day, we encourage you to come back to the gym from 5-7pm to cheer for everyone! Each week we’ll have a “headliner heat.”


  • Week 1 = Teens. Cheer on our youngest registered athletes as they take the stage!
  • Week 2 = Masters. Get inspired by our Masters athletes, anyone over the age of 35 can participate.
  • Week 3 = Nominees. If you know of an athlete who didn’t get to headline in weeks 1 or 2, but they’d be a great headliner athlete, send their name our way! Self-nominees are encouraged, rookies especially! You DO NOT need to be an Rx athlete to headline!

ICA Intramural

Every registered athlete will get assigned to one of our in-house Open teams. Each team will be led by ICA coaches, who will be your guides for the Open. You’ll earn points for your team just by showing up and completing the workout. The higher you place, the more points you’ll earn. We’ll also give out spirit awards each week for a chance to earn your team even more points!

To get assigned to an in-house intramural team, you MUST officially register for the Open BY THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22 and pick CrossFit Phoenixville as your affiliate!

The fun continues…

After the Open, the top 25% of athletes will be invited to participate in a 2nd level of competition, the Quarterfinals. This is a huge increase over last year, where only the top 10% were invited. We expect to have several athletes qualify for this level of competition. The Quarterfinals take place April 17-22.

After Quarterfinals, the very best individual athletes will qualify for semifinals. From there, the top 40 men and 40 women in the world will compete at the 2024 CrossFit Games in Fort Worth, Texas, from Aug. 8-11, to crown the Fittest on Earth.

For age-group athletes (teens and masters), the top 200 athletes from each age group will advance to the online Age-Group Semifinal (May 8-13) to determine who will advance to the CrossFit Games. As many of you know, Reese Littlewood has qualified for the Games the last 2 years, finishing 4th in the world for girls ages 14-15 in 2022 and 4th in the world for girls ages 16-17 in 2023. We can’t wait to see what this year has in store! After the online semifinals, the top 30 boys and 30 girls from the teenage divisions will advance to the Teenage CrossFit Games in Three Rivers, Michigan. Competition dates TBA.
