The History of the CrossFit Games

We are in the full swing of the CrossFit Games season!  Week 1 is in the books.  Week 2 is on and the workout is today with Friday Night Face Off.  The workout is:

15 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of:

9 deadlifts (155#/100# for women)

12 push-ups (must release the hands off the floor at the bottom)

15 box jumps (24″/20″ for women)

Like CrossFit itself, the CrossFit Games have come a long way from its first year in 2007.  From 2007 to 2009, the Games took place at dusty ranch in Aromas, California.  Aromas?  Exactly.  Where the flock is Aromas?  In 2010, the Games stepped it up to the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.  They’re back this year at the Home Depot Center.

For a history on the games, check out Freddy Camacho and CrossFit Games Director, Dave Castro, remembrance of the Games.
