Last night the 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games were featured during Prime time on ESPN2 (a Major Cable network!). For MANY of you, it may have been the first exposure you ever had to our sport of CrossFit. To avid CrossFitters, it was certainly the most “mainstream” exposure we’ve ever seen given to our sport.

Regardless of your stance and experience with it, what are your thoughts? Did you like learning about CrossFit and the CrossFit Games? If you knew about them already, do you think the shows last night did them justice?

I’m curious to how you all feel about it. All I know is that I was like a kid in a candy store watching some of my friends and other CrossFit starts tear it up! I’m a very active CrossFitter and a trainer at CrossFit Lakewood here in Denver, Colorado, so seeing my hobby and passion being presented to such a large audience actually filled me with a HUGE sense of pride!

If you missed the shows last night, fear not, there are two more weeks of coverage on Wednesday nights! Check the trailer for the show below, and the TV schedule below that.

So…. what’d you guys think?!

Well folks, the Sport of CrossFit is turning heads yet again. This time, on a slightly larger scale.

From 5 years ago where the “CrossFit Games” were held on a ranch in Southern California with a few people, to all but selling out the Home Depot Center in Carson, California, CrossFit is about to receive a pretty grand stage to showcase what we’re all about.

Starting TONIGHT Wednesday,  September 14th, a recap of The 2011 Reebok CrossFit Games will be televised on ESPN2!!

Check out the video below showing what it will be all about, and the TV schedule I pulled from the official video. This is going to be SO COOL! Now, part of “our story” will be put out there for thousands (millions?) of other people to see.

First, Reebok partners with CrossFit and starts to release a CrossFit-Specific clothing line. Now, ESPN2 Prime Time Coverage for 2 weeks in a row? Get ready for the next big wave, people. I told you we were going to take off.

PUMPED!
