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!

Here is the second part of the CrossFit Movie Outtake with Caity Matter, 2008 Games overall champion.

Caity talks about her love of training and competition, and how the clean is her best event (rumor has it that she has a 4:30 Man-Grace).

It's gonna be tough to de-thrown Caity Matter in 2009. She looks like she was made to wear the first place medal.

In addition to being a WNBA player and Buckeye hoops star, Caity was also a two time state champ in the shot and discus. The girl is an athlete! Interesting that Sevan(7) is a big fan.
