2023 CrossFit Season Equipment List Announced

The 2023 CrossFit season kicks off with the Open in February.

The 2023 CrossFit Open begins on Feb. 16, 2023. The required equipment for competing athletes remained a mystery until Dec. 21, 2022, when the complete equipment list for the 2023 CrossFit season was released in the newsletter “The Hopper.” While the list is subject to change, its initial iteration consists of 14 implements of varying sizes and weights and some of the corresponding movements they will be used for. Below is the list as it appeared in the announcement:
