CrossFit, the Sport of Fitness created in 2007, is a fitness program that combines a wide variety of functional movements into a timed or scored workout. Running, biking, rowing, push-ups, pull-ups, squats, handstands, odd-object lifts and countless other movements are combined in an infinite number of ways. The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. A CrossFit athlete’s goal is to become the ultimate generalist, capable of any task life throws at them. Introduced to the web in 2002, CrossFit quickly flourished in law enforcement and military communities, where a person’s fitness directly affects their ability to make it home alive. From there it spread, reaching everyone from the weekend warrior training in their garage to the senior citizen hoping to regain the functionality necessary to live independently. Hundreds of thousands of athletes enter into the first stage of the season, the worldwide Open. Held in eight different cities over three weeks, the top athletes from the regionals then advance to the CrossFit Games. The CrossFit Games week features the world’s fittest 40 men, 40 women, 40 teams, 40 teenage competitors, and 200 masters (athletes who are 40+). The Games week is a festival of fitness, with fans from around the globe coming to watch the competition while also connecting with fellow CrossFitters, trainers and affiliate owners. CrossFit produces original programming for ESPN from the Games, with more than nine hours of live broadcast on ESPN and ESPN2.
