Our training throughout 99% of the year is built on improving your fitness, not testing it. While we program one rep max attempts and benchmark WODs, those are still built around the idea of improving your fitness as the primary goal.

The upcoming CrossFit Games Open is built around testing your fitness. CrossFit’s definition of fitness is a relative, not an absolute: “Fitness is increased work capacity over broad time and modal domains.” Being able to accurately and precisely measure your fitness at a certain time/age versus a past time/age, and being able to measure it relative to other athletes is critical to determining if this shit actually works.

So I encourage everybody to test whether or not they are getting fitter by registering for the Open.
