"The TEST of FITNESS"
This movie, by Greg Glassman and Dave Castro, gives you a very good look at the world of CrossFit as it relates to the CrossFit games and the level of fitness it takes to be awesome. Our company sponsored the games in 2010 and we've seen the development of the athletes and the numbers of participants over the last few years.
