How to Choose a CrossFit Open Workout

February 7, 2023

There’s something for everyone in the CrossFit Open regardless of fitness level or ability!


Open workouts are called tests. Each week of the Open, you can choose to complete one of three variations of the released test — Rx’d (“as prescribed”), Scaled, or Foundations.

You can finish the Open with any combination of the test variations based on your current ability. Scaled or Foundations versions might be best one week, while the Rx’d version might be more your speed the next.

Not sure which version is best for you? Set yourself up for a fun, successful Open season by creating a game plan with your coach.
