CrossFit is a fitness regimen designed to accommodate the health goals of any athlete. Developed by Greg Glassman, the CrossFit program aims to improve a participant's cardiopulmonary health, muscle strength, flexibility, and endurance. As a natural extension of CrossFit's goals, the CrossFit Games are aimed at finding the "Fittest on Earth."
Greg Glassman and his team at CrossFit created the CrossFit Games after realizing that no other athletic competition, not even popular sports such as professional football, provided an accurate way to measure an athlete's strength and fitness. The twist to the CrossFit Games is that the participants, 50 men and 50 women, do not know what trials they must complete. On some occasions, they must spring up and down hills, swim a great distance, carry sandbags, or outlast one another in endurance challenges. The judges mask the events on the basis that the fittest athletes should be able to conquer any challenge put in front of them without advance knowledge of what the challenge entails.
Today, athletes all around the globe acknowledge the CrossFit Games as one of the most grueling but rewarding fitness competitions in which one can compete.
