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?!

Yeah. The next big thing just happened to CrossFit.

ESPN3 is on board as the site that will officially stream the 2011 CrossFit Games in Carson, CA, this coming weekend. This should give so much more exposure to the “Sport” of CrossFit that has already been blowing up in popularity around the world.
