18 May CrossFit FAQ 1: Difference between CrossFit and the CrossFit Games?
I am intimidated by what I have seen on TV at the CrossFit Games. Can I really perform these workouts?
So am I and YES, you can perform those same workouts…just not at those weights and speeds – remember the beauty of CrossFit is that it's infinitely scalable. Those Games athletes are extremely talented and practice very hard to perform at that level just like any other professional athlete. The athletes you see competing at the CrossFit Games represent 0.001% of the CrossFit community – the community are just every day people who are willing to try their best and work with what they have been given. The CrossFit Games is a sport, CrossFit is a fitness methodology.
