If you are looking to compete in CrossFit or have specific goals for the Open this track is for you. Hyper: The Hyper track provides multiple parts for each training session. Frequent strength, conditioning, gymnastics, and endurance pieces provide the most demanding track. Sessions last 90 min - 3 hours depending on the time of year, cycle of training, and level of athlete. Our Icon ambassadors pursuing the podium at the CrossFit Games or making their first trip there utilize the Hyper programming. Strength: For those looking to make gains in the strength departments. Workouts involve challenging loading and often provide different strength cycles depending on the time of year.

Instant Analysis

Receive instant analysis for each workout result. View personal records, gym/world rankings, work/power output, and more. You'll also receive Workout Levels (1-99) that will tell you how good your result actually is. How decent is a 4:22 Fran? Where does a 322 lb Deadlift rank? Which is better? Workout Levels will tell you. Instantly.

How It Works

Athletes and Gyms have access to all 4 Tracks of Programming. We provide goal times or rounds to achieve with each workout. Use these as a guide as to whether or not you should scale workouts in order to maintain intensity. We believe in intensity over volume. Mix and match programming tracks as desired by substituting one piece for another but we encourage you not to "double up". Programming is released in advance for the upcoming week so you can plan accordingly. If using BTWB, you will receive daily messages, as well as Facebook group messages, to brief each training day. We encourage you to read through them and participate in the conversations with the community. There are no egos or negativity allowed. We want to support you regardless of where you are. From the Games athlete to those looking for more adventure out your backdoor we are here to help. The monthly fee is $45. It renews automatically and you can cancel any time.
