The 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games are approaching quickly, and fans from around the world are flocking to Madison, Wisconsin, to witness the competition for the title of Fittest on Earth. 

The CrossFit Games are not an everyday sporting event — rather, the Games are a festival of fitness uniting thousands of people through a shared love of a healthy lifestyle and an affinity for fierce competition. Each year, fans are offered a variety of on-site activities to keep them entertained and even allow them to squeeze in a workout during downtime in the competition. 

The 2021 Games boast a huge array of fan entertainment meant to maximize your Games experience. Keep reading to find out how you can join the fun — and the fitness — at this year’s CrossFit Games.

Weeklong Activities at the CrossFit Games

Work Out

The Assault Fitness Spectator Workout Area allows fans to work out on site at the CrossFit Games! Assault Fitness has teamed up with SugarWOD, Zen Planner, and CrossFit Affiliate Programming (CAP) to give everyone in attendance an experience to remember. 

The 2021 Virtual Games give fans an opportunity to test themselves across a series of workouts that run parallel to the events in the 2021 NOBULL CrossFit Games. This new, multiple-workout challenge is for any and all who want to test their fitness and see where they measure up against peers across the globe. Need to scale? You are welcome to complete each workout as prescribed or modify as needed. Register for the Virtual Games here, and head over to the Assault Fitness Spectator Workout Area to complete your Virtual Games workouts.

Get your faith and fitness workouts in with Faith RXD Wednesday through Sunday in the Assault Fitness Spectator Workout Area.

Shop

WIT Fitness was born out of a desire to create a home for the global community of the training obsessed.

Visit WIT’s store on site for a variety of top-notch CrossFit apparel.

The RAM TRX Thrill Ride is an off-road driving course in the area behind the campgrounds, hosted by RAM Trucks. Spectators who would like to take one of the 700-horsepower RAM TRX for a spin may sign up here.

Give the kiddos a break from the Madison sun and let them burn off some energy in the Kids Zone, located in the Assault Fitness Spectator Workout Area.

Affiliates and fans of the CrossFit Games are welcome to day-camp at the CrossFit Games. Bring your pop-up tents, chairs, and coolers (no grills, please). This area is located just outside the main entrance to the CrossFit Games and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Note: Items may not be left overnight, and security will not be present during the day.

The Demo Stage

Head over to the WIT Vendor Pavilion to learn from top trainers on CrossFit’s Seminar Staff about squats, presses, deadlifts, and coaching development. We will also feature some of our approved providers who will work on aerobic capacity, kettlebell and jump-rope technique, and more!
