The foundations version of the CrossFit Open allows anyone to play.
“What we’re trying to do is open the door so that anybody can play and they can experience all the great things of the Open. You can challenge yourself in a fun and safe, supportive environment and do some things that you didn’t think you could," says CrossFit Games competition director Adrian Bozman.
In addition to the Rx’d and scaled versions of the workouts, this year’s Open will include a new foundations version. Foundations versions of the workouts will be a step down in difficulty from scaled versions and are available for athletes who are newer to CrossFit or are experiencing some trepidation.
