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!

This just in: Diligent spying, creative snooping, and the opportunity of a lifetime for our reporter on the scene allows us to bring you this unbelievable photographic evidence of how two top Games contenders, "Dutch" Lowy and "Speal" Spealler, are REALLY preparing for the games.

WODs? Ha. Wood-tossing? Nope. Incredible bodyweight workouts, Olympic lifts, and the Zone diet? Hardly!

Come on out and see how the latest in high-tech machine training prepares these athletes to smash the competition!

that's good. i love it. i have those same pathetic machines in the globo gym i work at. i believe there called free motion, i think. yeah i'm sure with workouts done strictly on those kind of machines, they will smash the competition at the games. especially the inverted muscle-ups! thank god for cable pulley system driven machines. perfection!

Are the fires causing any problems out there in Aromas? I see that certain areas of Monterey County have some issues.

You guys can laugh it up now, but when coach posts the lat pull down event for reps on Sunday (with alternating sets of cable crossovers), who will get the last laugh?
