CrossFit 2017: 3 icons


What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is a high intensity exercise program and competitive fitness sport focusing on functional movements (movements of everyday life, like squatting). Think Olympic weightlifting meets gymnastics meets running and everything in between.

Who does CrossFit?

You can find people of all ages and fitness levels at a CrossFit box (gym). Community and camaraderie are at the core of the program and CrossFitters love to “Work Hard, Play Hard!”

What are the CrossFit Games like?

The Games distinguish themselves from other sports by testing overall fitness, rather than skills in a specific area. In a “ready for anything” style, the athletes are challenged to workouts kept secret until right before the event. In the past, they’ve been surprised with everything from a rough water swim to a pegboard climb. The pure strength of these athletes, plus the excitement of the unknown, make this a supercharged spectator sport.

On the grounds of the Alliant Energy Center, athletes and spectators can also enjoy a festival with more than 200,000 square feet of exhibitors, a 20,000 square-foot beer garden, spectator workout space, live demos, music and a lot more.
