Each year since 2007, CrossFit has determined the Fittest Man and Woman on Earth through a series of events called the CrossFit Games. The CrossFit Games are a multi-day event where the top athletes in the world are tested with a variety of challenges including Olympic lifting, gymnastics, swimming, running, and more. At the end of a grueling competition, one man and one woman will have clearly distinguished themselves as the Fittest on Earth. Join Host Chase Ingraham and various guests as they break down the ins and outs of the CrossFit Games season each week on the CrossFit Games Podcast.

“What makes (the Open) worth it is all the things we’ve been talking about so far — the camaraderie, the fact that anybody can do it. What a confidence boost to take anybody who’s not athletic, isn’t particularly health-conscious, and over the course of time they can enter into something like this and see success, whatever that looks like to them.
