Regionals are where the fittest athletes and teams in each region come together to compete and celebrate affiliate communities around the world. At the end of the weekend, the fittest will earn their place to the CrossFit Games. 

If you can't make it out to see the competition in person, get ready to kick back, kick up your Nanos, and watch all the action from the comfort of your living room. We recommend planning watch parties, because everything's more fun with friends, but you do you.

You will have several options for watching every exciting moment of all nine Regional competitions: Every heat will be broadcast live on Facebook Live, Games.CrossFit.comCBSSports.com and the CBS Sports App. Also, if you enjoyed the Games on CBS, we have good news for you: This is the first time that Regionals will be broadcast on TV. Scroll down to view complete details and times for all viewing options.
