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!

an interesting experiment for many guys would be to do the crossfit games workouts at the women's weight.

i suspect a lot of egos would be bruised - including mine!

Watching Libby rush to that deadlift bar after the burpees gave me the chills... so awesome. Speed and intensity! Incredibly inspirational, all of those athletes.
