In CrossFit Games

July 21, 2009

PDF Article

As a bonus to Journal subscribers, we’re offering the 2009 CrossFit Games Program as a downloadable PDF.

All 160 full color pages are included in spread format, so you see it the same way as if you were looking at the actual program.

With a beautiful layout, the program includes a letter from CrossFit Founder Greg Glassman, looks back at the 2007 and 2008 editions of the Games, reviews all 19 of this year’s regional qualifiers, and provides a profile of every 2009 individual competitor.

There was a limited edition print run, sold only at the Games. Now, the remaining stock from Aromas is available in the CrossFit Store.

The printed piece is gorgeous. The content is identical to the PDF, but the experience is better. It’s the first of what will be our annual program, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Here is your chance to be one of the lucky few to own the original CrossFit Games Program.

Thanks for posting the program in PDF form for download. I don't see this with any other national or international events.

Joe, They have already done one cert in the UK last year in Manchester. There is also one coming up in Northern Ireland soon. Where is your box in the UK?

Your synopsis of "What is Crossfit" and "Fitness and Health" and the beginning of the program is well spoken, clear and concise. I would like to at least paraphrase, if not directly quote, this information on our website because I think it does an excellent job of capturing the essence of Crossfit for visitors to our site. What would you recommend/approve for citing? Reference to you, Crossfit, this document? Thanks,

Wow, thanks for posting this up. I'm from the UK so missed out on the experience of the Games but saw this in the store and considered it but it's extremely expensive considering the postage to the UK.


I ordered the program for shipping to the UK too, especially because such a big deal was made about "limited availability". Oh well, at least I added a tee shirt in there to offset the cost - and I'll get a nice shiny souvenir! Downloaded the PDF but I'm going to wait until I have the physical product in my mitts to read it the way it was intended.

There is a Level 1 cert in Northern Ireland on September 26/27th ( (WFS)). There is also a UK based forum where we discuss CrossFit and all things functional fitness related at (WFS). Come check it out (same to all visitors from the UK/Ireland).

Thanks to CF for making the program avaiable to all of us journal subscribers. I live in the UK and I'm happy that I ordered my very own copy regardless of the price. It's worth it to read about how much these CFer's put into the CF Games, all the blood, sweat and tears.

Thanks a lot. This is great. BTW, why is Gym Jones such a bad name around here?

I just wanted to make note of one oversight in the games program that is close to my heart. On page 17 paragraph 7 under the "Men" heading on the right it says "The Utah boys, Spealler and Eric O’Connor, had the fastest times of the day at 3:22 and 3:20, respectively.". Well My brother, Andrew Gray also finished that WOD in 3:22, tied for second. RESPECT!!!

Ha ha, not trying to get all serious or anything, just repping my brother!
