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!

The Games are over and the results are in!

The Top Female CrossFitter for 2008 is Caity Matter of Gahanna, OH, where she trains with Rogue Fitness. Tanya Wagner took second place and Gillian Mounsey took third.

The Top Male CrossFitter for 2008 is Jason Khalipa of CrossFit Unlimited in Milpitas, CA. Josh Everett came in second, with Jeremy Thiel in third.

The Affiliate Cup was won by the team from CrossFit Oakland.

Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all the volunteers, spectators, and competitors for a great weekend!

Every Second Counts - Trailer

In case you missed it on the main site, we have a working trailer for the CrossFit Movie: Every Second Counts. The rough cut of the movie is done. There are still several important decisions to be made about additional post-production work. Depending on how those decisions get made, we could see a distributed version as early as Jan 09.

Sevan and Carey have done an amazing job, and the movie will be well worth the wait.

looks like sevan is struggling to keep up with josh's monster strides!

i think keeping pace with all the top crossfit competitors deserves a reward by itself.

Friggin' awesome teaser! I have a feeling that it's gonna be tough to get one's hands on the first production run of this. I can't wait!

If that doesn't get you fired up, check your pulse.

Sevan and Carey came by One World after the Level II Cert last weekend and a few of us got to preview the flick. (Thanks you two!) It's awesome. You are all going to love it.
