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!

5th at the games! That is bad A$$! Now I don't feel so bad about all the times you have destroyed me in workouts. ;) Seriously though, Jeff is the biggest beast I know and at the same time one of the most humble people I have ever met. I wish you nothing but success.

Jeff was one of he trainers at my first Cert, and is an amazing coach.

I appreciated all his help and was pumped to see how well he did at the games.

Keep it up Jeff!!!

Man I told everyone to keep an eye on this guy before the games. (See comments on Jeff's profile) We could have used more of his competition footage during the interview. This guy brings 'Intensity' to another level. Congrats Jeff
