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!

The Games are over and the results are in!

Caity's Last Reps

There are a couple of things to learn from this video:

First, Caity Matter, who works out and is a trainer at Rogue Fitness, pushed HARD on the final reps of the final workout of the Games. No doubt that this girl is an outstanding athlete.

Second, it's hard to hold the video camera steady while screaming your lungs out for your favorite competitor!
