The CrossFit Games are the world’s premiere test to find the Fittest man & woman on Earth. The season is broken up into three stages. The first stage is the Open. This five-week, five-workout competition is held in CrossFit affiliates and garage gyms around the world. Workouts are released online each Thursday, and athletes have until the following Monday to submit their scores. Anyone who has a heartbeat can sign up and join in the first stage of the CrossFit Games season. This year’s Open kicks off on February 26th. Last year more than 209,000 individuals registered worldwide. Suffice to say, this is your one opportunity to test your Fitness against nearly every other CrossFit athlete on planet Earth. Now c’mon, aren’t you just a little curious?!?

Here’s a brief video reel of The Games from start of finish. If you look closely, you may catch a glimpse of a certain CFBT Coach in a certain scene giving it all she’s got!

Prove Your Fitness


The 2015 CrossFit Games Open season is once again upon us. More than 209,000 people participated in the Open last year, and this year the worldwide competition will be even broader and more inclusive; a ‘Scaled’ version of the workouts will make its debut this year. The first Open workout will be released on Thursday, Feb. 26th. As in previous years, the Open will be a five-week competition with one new workout released each week. The week’s workout will be released each Thursday at 5 p.m. PT, and competitors will have four days to complete the workout and log their score on the Games site in real time. Score submissions will be due by 4pm Pacific Standard Time on the following Monday to allow us sufficient time to validate all scores.

NOTE: There are no exceptions to the deadline listed above in submitting scores. NONE WHATSOEVER.  

Should you wish to participate in the 2015 worldwide CrossFit Open, you must first register online by going to the CrossFit Games site at no later than Thursday February 26th, 5pm PST. Once registered, you will be asked to create an online athlete profile that you can in turn have linked to our gym; ‘CrossFit Belltown’ is our Team name.

Please see below for a schedule of the five events, each to be hosted at CrossFit Belltown.

WEEK/WOD#1 Saturday Feb 28 (9:30a-12:30p)

WEEK/WOD#2 Saturday March 7 (9:30a-12:30p)

WEEK/WOD#3 Saturday March 14 (9:30a-12:30p)

WEEK/WOD#4 Saturday March 21 (9:30a-12:30p)

WEEK/WOD#5 Friday March 27 (4:30p-7:30p)

You must register for a heat time (to be paired with a judge) in order to take part in each of the five workouts. Registering for a heat time can either be done in person (a heat-sheet will be posted in the gym locker area) or via email ( An in-passing verbal conversation or social media outreach will not be recognized as a legitimate means of arranging a heat time for any of the five events. ADDITIONALLY, ANY COMPETITOR EXPECTING TO HAVE HIS/HER WORKOUT JUDGED WITHOUT HAVING PRIORLY REGISTERED FOR A HEAT TIME WILL BE ASKED TO DO THE WORKOUT LAST.

Note: Any competitor wishing to not have a judge will have his/her score(s) removed from competition.

A heat-sheet will be located at the gym front desk every Thursday evening at 630pm following the release of each workout. The first heat-sheet will be posted Thursday Feb 26th at 6:30pm.

Should you need to make alternative arrangements to have your workout(s) judged outside of the days/times listed above, each request will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Please keep in mind that not all requests may be granted.
