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
3, 2, 1 — GO!

My thoughts: Being around fellow CrossFitters is always a good time. Ever since I went to my first cert 3 years ago, I have been blown away by the community that CrossFit has created. We have developed the same type of community at our gym. Firefighters are widely known for having a strong brotherhood, but it doesn't compare to the CrossFit community.

As far as the competition, I can't wait to watch the show. There are going to be some amazing athletes and performances. The only thing I have done differently to prepare for the CF Games is stick to the Diet more. I am at 16 blocks a day now. I have been doing CrossFit for 3.5 years, and I have practiced 'My Bitch' (whatever it may be - there have been so many) after WOD's ever since I have been CrossFitting. I will be one of the few who don't follow the main site WOD. I do the same workouts that I write for CF Fairfax. I am excited to see how we do in the Affiliate Competition. Like Coach says "The magic is in the movements, the art is in the programming, and the science is in the explanation."

Jeff - you were awesome at the Virginia Beach Cert last March. After someone announced that you hit 61 push press reps in one minute and Nicole asked who used the Zone diet and you raised your hand I decided to give it a try. I thought, "I'll do whatever he does." So, since March I've been zoning and have seen amazing results.

Bravo to you! And do well at the games!

By Brad on June 27, 2008 7:13 AM

Watch out CA - Here he comes! Go Get'em, Jeff!
We'll all be back here cheering for you and the rest of the CF Fairfax team!

Jeff - You & crew are going to put us on the map, for sure! I have no doubt that CF Fairfax will be long remembered after the games this year. It won't just be about how well you all compete, but by the "brotherhood" of which you speak of. Best of Luck . . . the home team will be rooting for you all!!
