Let the Games begin!

You've been waiting for this moment all year... CrossFit's biggest event of the year is finally here! Starting today, athletes from all around the world converge on Madison, Wisconsin to compete to see who is the Fittest on Earth in The CrossFit Games. 

Is Mat Fraser going to threepeat and take the top spot yet again? Will defending champion Tia Claire-Toomey be able to stave off a packed and hungry field to take home the win two years in a row? Which team will come out on top?

All will be revealed by August 5th! And you can watch the Games live with your fellow CFT athletes on Friday night! More details are below in the Events section, so let's GO!

   Athlete of the Month   

August's athlete is Leo!
One of the long-time mainstays of the CFT community, Leo is the WOD-killa. The prime case of leading by example. Not only that, but he's one of the more supportive athletes in the gym, giving out words of encouragement if he notices you struggling. You're about to find out more from the man himself! 

Athlete Interview
CFT: Where are you from? 
Leo: Winthrop
CFT: How long have you been doing CrossFit? 
Leo: Don't remember exactly.  I think over 4 years?

CFT: Did you have a fitness background prior to starting CrossFit? 
Leo: I played sports.
