Want to watch the most elite athletes compete for the title “Fittest Person on Earth”? Of course you do. But where on Earth can you witness the CrossFit Games? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
First of all no, I do not have an extra ticket to give out if that’s what you were thinking. Second, if I had an extra ticket — I’d use it for myself!
If you’re unfamiliar with CrossFit, it’s considered “constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement.” The CrossFit Games is the Olympic Games of CrossFit. That means the best of the best are competing for the coolest title ever. I mean, the fittest on Earth? Come on.
So you’ve got the most basic understanding of what CrossFit and the CrossFit Games are. Now what are the best ways to watch the games?
1. Live, in person.
Sorry, you missed out on that opportunity a long time ago. Move on.
2. Xbox LIVE
If you have an Xbox 360 with a Gold Pass, you will be able to watch the games via the ESPN app. Thanks to ESPN and Microsoft, you can watch the CrossFit Games on demand. Yes. That means you’ll be able to watch the games whenever you want. It’s the second best way to watch the games.
The site will have the same live stream from ESPN3 that the Xbox app will get, but you’ll most likely be sitting at your computer desk. Great for those stuck at work.
Don’t have time to watch the entire game? Subscribe to crossfithq. You’ll get highlights, updates and behind the scenes vids.
5. Do All The Game WODS (Work Out of the Day)
Screw the games! Why watch, when you can do the WOD’s yourself? Obviously, you’d need the necessary equipment in order to compare yourself to the top. So go to your local box, gym, or garage for this option.
Honorable Mention – ESPN3
This channel has no reason to exist other than to show extreme bass fishing and the CrossFit Games. It’s great for that one event out of the entire year. I don’t recommend this.
The games technically started yesterday, but the televised portion will be aired this Friday, Saturday and Sunday early in the morning to late at night.
