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

It's Humble Jeff. Your an example to all of us brother. One of the most inspiring athletes Crossfit has ever known, and I absolutely mean that.

And oldie but a goodie; Jeff T was posting PB's before many of us even heard of CrossFit.

Those pull-ups destroyed me, I did my last 19 one at a time.

Jeff, you are such an inspiration to all of us. You are not only an amazing athelete but also a great partner. You make us all so proud.

I have to laugh at the first sentence. The acronym R.O.M. for me now will mean

Relative Old Man...not Range of Motion

Jeff, I consider myself very fortunate to be able to benefit from your training and incredible work ethic. I appreciate Crossfit Fairfax more than I can say.

Jeff is just a great guy. Savage athlete, great person.

Jeff T is one of the best athletes and best people I have ever met. He has an extrodinary work capacity without a single trace of ego. He is a true class act.
