What are the CrossFit Games?

“In implementation, this looks like sport. This is revolutionary. It's as distinctive of the program as are the movements and the charter of functionality and variance. Our workouts are competitive events.

The strength and value of CrossFit lies entirely within our dominance of other athletes. This is a truth divined through competition, not debate.”

Greg Glassman, CrossFit Co-Founder & CEO

Front Range CrossFit Discussion ...[wmv][mov]

Front Range CrossFit is sending 15 (!) athletes to the Games this year. Here's a discussion with Skip and Jodi Miller (the owners) and several of their athletes. With the numbers, attitude, and training background this team brings to the event, they look to be SERIOUS contenders for the team title.


Skip, looks like a dedicated team. And it seems like only yesterday we were talking about the Games at Brian's place in Newport.

Good luck Front Range, and I hope you have a blast!
