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!

Our amazing sponsor recruitment specialist (otherwise known as the chief arm twister), Mike Pomerenning, goes through the incredible goodies that the Games winners received. We had, as you will see, tremendous support from a wide variety of cool sponsors, and hope that this little video will whet your appetites for next year's events.

I was talking with our Customer Service rep tonight, and she told me that on Sunday night, July 6th, she received an email marked URGENT! The contents of that email? "How do I register for the 2009 Games?"

So...don't wait too long before starting to train for next year....
