After about two weeks without a motorcycle, CrossFit Media’s Pat Sherwood finally comes face to face with the broken machine in the mechanic’s workshop. He likens it to a dead animal: “You can see a skeleton of what it used to be and there’s just carcass everywhere—that’s my bike.”
The decision is made to donate the bike to CrossFit San Miguel de Tucumán, and it throws a monkey wrench into the Latin American motorcycle adventure Sherwood and videographer Ian… Continue Reading
With three older brothers, Lauren Fisher quickly learned how to play with the boys.
“She would just never back down,” says Fisher’s mom, Linda.
At 12 years old, Fisher started training at CrossFit 209 Sport in Stockton, Calif. As with other athletes who start CrossFit early in life, Fisher improved quickly and reached a high level of fitness at a young age.

Tony Blauer had him picked out: he was the guy with the tank top and lots of tattoos.
At the seminar in Australia, Blauer, who owns Blauer Tactical Systems and leads the CrossFit Defense courses, chose him as a volunteer to demonstrate how speech choices can defuse a potentially violent situation.
He told the guy, “I’m gonna stare at you, and when it gets uncomfortable, just say, ‘Hey, what are you lookin’ at?’” Blauer… Continue Reading
It takes dozens upon dozens of staff and volunteers to pull off a CrossFit Games Regional competition. At this year’s Europe Regional, the demands were even greater as the final event was broadcast live to a host of countries on Eurosport.

With the help of Max Benejam of CrossFit San Miguel de Tucumán, he’s able to get the bike to a mechanic. The diagnosis isn’t good.
“They kept saying this word fundido. And they’re like, ‘I think the motor is fundido,’” explains Sherwood. “And I’m like, ‘Fundido, like, I don’t know that one,’ and so as… Continue Reading
