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!

Jodi's thoughts on the Games:
The number of strong and powerful women attending the games this year is so impressive. I can't wait to meet them all even though they scare me a little. Okay, I'll admit it, they scare me A LOT! It's going to be a great competition and I know more than anything it's going to be a lot of fun!

I'm Zoning on 11 blocks with 2-3x fat and feel awesome. Except when I piggie eat an entire brownie waffle bowl from Dairy Queen!

I'm excited, I'm nervous...I have no idea what to expect! I'll just keep following the WODs and hope that prepares me for whatever challenge is thrown our way. I've got my lucky socks packed and ready to go!!


That blue singlet is some hot! :P

Go Jodi! Good luck in July!

We're all cheering for you Jodi! I'm pretty sure "Jodi socks" are quickly becoming a standard piece of CF equipment, guaranteed to add 50# to your DL.

By Ian Haya on June 4, 2008 8:54 AM

Darn right you need to bring your lucky socks Nanook, like Ian said they'll add at least 50# to your deadlift. :)

Good luck at the games Jodi.
