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

Great interview, Gillian. You're a natural athlete and really nice person.

You're so impressive and look forward to seeing what kinds of feats of strength you pull off in the future!

See you at LBH!

Gillian we are very impressed with you in Australia. Your instruction on the Gymnastic Cert was great. Hope you venture this way more often.
