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, continuing with the selective live regionals, and concluding with an elite few on a world stage at the CrossFit Games.
The 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games West Regional features the fittest men, women and teams from the northwestern United States, western Canada, and Northern and Southern California. Only the top 40 men, 40 women and 30 four-person teams are invited to compete at the West Regional.
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 Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin, Aug. 1-5.
