The sport of fitness is the brilliant slogan of CF Vancouver and it got me to thinking. I know that various affiliates have CF challenges every once and a while, but what if a CF games were started (much like the X-games) where contestants compete for trophies and prizes.

It would definitely increase the ground swell of CF even more and would peak the curiosity of the main stream public. Sponsorships could get involved (clothing, supplements, equipment etc.) and maybe some day down the road television coverage like the World strongman competitions.

What do ya think Coach?

"The sport of fitness is the brilliant slogan of CF Vancouver..."

FYI, CFCA got the slogan from Coach Glassman.

This is what I'm talkin' about. With a little organization and media attention the World Crossfit Games would rule! The workouts for the Ultrafit contest look difficult, but nothing a top CF'er couldn't handle.

Any of you guys in the UK know this dude that won? He is supposedly the world's fittest man (I'd like to see his numbers on a WOD).

A bit of wisdom I found on the Ultrafit website/Magazine

Crunch – main abdominal region
“No all-over general fitness weights workout should go without an abdominal move,” explains the Rat, adding, By far the best all round ab move is the crunch. The exercise targets all areas of the abdominals.

Hahaha Dave, that's pretty funny. Wait... Internet humor isn't quite clicking. Is he serious?

That, and is UltraFit just a Triathlon or varied fitness thing? I Googled "Ultrafit" and got all sorts of websites on it.

UltraFit is something run in the gyms over here. Gimme a bit and i can drag out the exact challenge...

It's basically a big timed chipper with set weights and reps that you've gotta rock through as quick as you can.

Exercises to include lat pulldowns, seated shoulder presses, weighted step ups, bike, press ups, ab crunch thingy's.....and a few others.

I don't know the dude who won, but i've done the challenge before i saw the light of CrossFit and it hurt.....might give it a re-visit and see how i do......:wink:

there is one of those comps here in Australia with similar exercises.
you have to be a member of a gym to take part, so i won't be having a go, but feel like i could give it a pretty good run if i did

I'm guessing that the reason I haven't heard of that, Stephen, is the fact that I've not been in a commercial gym for over 10 years...?
