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!

I'm Going to the Games! How the Heck Do I Get There?

The address for the CrossFit Games site is 275 Dunbarton Rd, Aromas CA 95004

Google Maps and Mapquest have incorrect data and take you to the wrong side of the highway.

Here is a link to directions from San Jose airport to the final intersection. When you get to the intersection of Highway 101 and Dunbarton Rd, turn East and the ranch is 0.33 miles on the left (East side of the road).


Layman's directions to the Ranch:

From the South
Take 101 North.
Pass a town called Prunedale and you are roughly 10 minutes out.
Once you pass Crazy Horse Canyon Rd you are 2 minutes out.
You will be looking for a sign that says Dunbarton Rd on your right. If you pass the first sign there is a second larger exit on your right. Which ever you get off of continue up the road. You will see the Ranch on the east side of the road.

From the North
45 minutes South of San Jose International Airport.
Take 101 South.
Once you pass The Red Barn Flea Market make sure you are in your left hand lane.
Your exit will be on the left and you will have to cross Northbound highway 101 traffic to get to the Ranch.
