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:
These are going to be my first Crossfit Games, and I have to admit that I'm a little bit anxious.

Competition this year is going to be tough. There are a number of amazing athletes participating this year! I can't wait to get there and finally meet them!

I have not changed or modified my training that much. I follow a two on, one off; three on one off cycle. I have only added some extra strength training and kept working on those areas that need improvement (double unders......). One area that I have put more emphasis on is nutrition. I'm zoning on 11 blocks, with 3 times fat. My energy level is higher and I am able to recover more quickly from workouts.

Mentally I'm ready to compete. I'll be competing against some incredible women, but I'm going to the games prepared to give it my best. And, of course, have fun!

"...You don't have to be number 1 or be the best. Just do your best. If you aren't first, then make those people ahead of you break records by pushing them with your personal best."


Good luck Maggie! You will represent Crossfit Fairfax well :-)
