The CrossFit Games are here!

This weekend the CrossFit Games will crown the fittest man and woman on the planet at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. How will they do that? Well, athletes who have qualified through a series of preliminary competitions all over the world have earned the trip to Carson where they will take on a series of tasks from weightlifting and running to gymnastics and swimming, and everything in between..

Known for it’s efficacy, CrossFit covers all of its bases in the fitness of it’s athletes. Workouts can be long, short, fast , slow, heavy, light, and any combination you could imagine. Such fitness prepares athletes for the unknown and unknowable, since that’s what life is anyhow. So much so, that athletes competing in this weekend’s event were surprised at the athlete’s dinner with news that the first two events of the competition started today (72 hours early)… On camp Pendleton (a hundred miles away).

These athletes already have a sprint triathlon through rugged mountain terrain under their belts and have completed a bracket style tournament of races through the Marine Corps obstacle course. Not to mention, on a day they assumed would be spent relaxing in the hotel.
