CrossFit.com appeared on the web in early 2001.

That February, Coach Greg Glassman sent a ping out into the universe, posting a workout of dumbbell thrusters and quarter mile runs for any life form listening and willing to try.

The CrossFit revolution began in garages and globo-gyms, with followers learning the movements by reading the text descriptions or watching the videos on the Exercises & Demos page, constructing their own equipment (Read “The Garage Gym” by Greg Glassman), and finding a community and accountability in the CrossFit.com comments thread.

Fifteen years later, a free Workout of the Day continues to blip onto CrossFit.com at 5 p.m. PT each day so that anyone, anywhere can get fit.

This year, the second workout of the 2016 Open will be announced from a garage gym. 

A small crew will fill the garage, including Director of the Games Dave Castro and the third- and fourth-ranked men from the 2015 Games, Björgvin Karl Guðmundsson and Dan Bailey.

Watch it live on Games.CrossFit.com starting at 5 p.m. PT on Thursday, March 3.
