The CrossFit Games are the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth.

In order to find the fittest, CrossFit has to cast a wide net. The three-stage CrossFit Games season acts as a funnel, starting with the all-inclusive online Open, advancing to the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.

The 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games Central Regional features the fittest men, women, and teams from the North Central and Central East of the United States. 43,000 athletes from these two regions entered the Open, but only the top-40 men, 40 women, and 30 6-person teams were invited to compete at the Central Regional (May 27-29).

Over the course of the three-day weekend, the athletes will face a barrage of tests designed to reveal any flaws in their fitness. Can they do well in long events? Short events? Heavy lifting? Gymnastics? To make it to the Games, these athletes must be true generalists capable of handling any task thrown at them.

The five men, five women, and five teams who do the best in relation to their peers across all of the events will be invited to compete at the CrossFit Games held at the StubHub Center in Carson, California July 19-24.

The Central Regional will be held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Regional tickets cost $75 for three days of access, or $30 per day.

Kids 12 and under are admitted free of charge with a ticketed adult.

Each affiliate owner (Licensee of Record) will receive a complimentary three-day ticket to their local regional. These complimentary tickets will be available at Will Call under the name of the LOR. The LOR can pick up their free ticket by stating their name and showing ID.
