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!

I like the outtake videos - but absolutely hate the pukie intro.

The front of the shirt was pretty cool as well. I couldn't remember the slogan on the back clear enough anymore.

I will agree the pukie intro is damn annoying as well.
