First CrossFit Games

CrossFit introduced the sport of fitness to the world in 2007, when a small group of around 70 athletes gathered at a ranch in northern California for the inaugural CrossFit Games.

CrossFit founder, Greg Glassman has always believed the fittest athletes would be able to handle any and every task, so the first event of the 2007 CrossFit Games was chosen randomly. With Coach Glassman presiding, colored balls labeled with movements were pulled from a hopper.

Launched crossfit.com

The website www.crossfit.com was officially launched. Since its launch it has been a gathering place for new athletes, trainers, and fitness enthusiasts to learn about, talk about, and discuss CrossFit and its method of training. In fact, many new fitness enthusiasts first learned how to implement Greg’s fitness training into their own fitness routine on the website.

Glassman's First Gym

Greg’s first gym was established in 1995 in Santa Cruz, California. Shortly after that, in the same year, Greg was officially hired by the Santa Cruz Police Department to help train their law enforcement officers. During this time training at his new gym he began to be booked with single clients and decided to double train individuals. This method of personal training for groups began to take off. This solution to his problem of being too busy was a big factor to Crossfit being founded and spreading throughout the United States and World.
