The 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games were a grueling five-day, 15-event test to find the fittest man and woman on Earth. “Fittest on Earth: A Decade of Fitness” follows the dramatic story of the top athletes who qualified and competed and offers an inside look at what it takes to be among the world’s elite athletes, both in training and on the competition floor.
For the record, there was a random weekend afternoon a few months ago where there wasn’t any real sports on tv and I didnt have any real things to do that weekend so I decided to be lazy af and watch the 2016 Crossfit Games live, and I have to admit, I was dumb enthralled by it. Like to the point where I probably watched it for 7 to 8 straight hours through the weekend.
The CrossFit Games challenge competitors to perform intense physical tasks, but the hardest part is sometimes mental. Athletes often learn the details of the events only minutes before they begin, and everyone handles the pressure differently. Which of these fierce competitors will rise to the top and earn the title of Fittest on Earth?

I was always skeptical of CF.
Not that it wouldn’t get you in shape, or that it wouldn’t get you jacked, but just how much of a cult like lituation it was…but upon retrospect, I’m come around on it. I’m fine with it being that.
But after that weekend a few months ago, I realized a few things.
First and foremost, CF is no fucking joke.
Second, I now know how to pronounce Icelandic names and understand what they are all about. I.E., Davíðsdóttir as a last name means that Katrin, was birthed by a David. Same is when the name ends with ‘son.
I also learned, and this is probably most important, there is something special about crossfit chicks.
I’ve always loved an athletic lady, soccer players, basketball players, tennis players, etc. but there is something kind of right about these crossfitter. Might be motivation enough for me to join a local box.
