The CrossFit saga continues to unfold in 2016. The greatness in the athletes is drawn out of the rigorous (painful) process. We see them compete fiercely in the games, but did you know they also have families to support and businesses to run? It's not all high-octane competition. Life happens. It gets real. And that's why we love it. Check this doco made out of the 2014 games and get the behind-the-scenes 411 on our athletes!

"From the Open to the regionals to the Games, the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games season made history.

Check out this in-depth look at the top level of CrossFit competition, we catch up with 2014’s top-seeded competitors Camille Leblanc-Bazinet, Rich Froning, Jason Khalipa, Josh Bridges, Sam Briggs, Lindsey Valenzuela and more.

Watch as we get inside the minds of the athletes who achieve their dreams of making it to the Games and find out what makes them tick. What are they thinking before 3-2-1 … go? Who are they watching? What are their expectations?

At the end of the weekend, three women and three men occupy the coveted Games podium and while some are already thinking about 2015, others are taking in every second of what may be their last time on the floor of the CrossFit Games."
