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!

Returning the Favor: Pat interviews Jolie

For this interview, the players change sides, and Pat Barber asks Jolie Gentry all about the games: her plans, her training, her job, her appreciation of the event scheduling...

Give this one a look to see who the reigning female champ is nervous about competing against, who in CrossFit she looks up to, and admire the greatest white rapper since Eminem.
