What is it?

The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth. They are world-renowned as a grueling test for the toughest athletes on Earth as well as a thrilling experience for spectators. Since its inception in 2007, the CrossFit Games have become “one of the fastest growing sports in America,” according to Forbes.

The CrossFit Games events are made up of a broad range of functional movements.

Functional movements move large loads, long distances, quickly. These movements also form the basis of our exercise program. 

At each CrossFit Games, the athletes engage in a series of challenges unknown to them until right before the competition. The combination of highly trained athletes and unknown events makes for an explosive mix. 

Who is Competing?

The field has been whittled down from hundreds of thousands of athletes in the Open to the world's fittest 40 men, 40 women, 40 teams, 80 teenagers, and 240 masters. The CrossFit Games rank the world's fittest, and determine who is the Fittest on Earth. 

Where & When:

The 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games will be held at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin.
