In 2012, over 68,000 CrossFitters competed in the Open, trying to win a spot to compete in one of 17 regional competitions at sites like the Richmond (British Columbia) Olympic Oval, the Los Angeles County Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., and the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castlerock, Colo.
CrossFit brings in 50 top-level national judges for the Games, plus another 80 judges with regional experience.
CrossFit also has its own in-house media team, with web videos, articles and photo galleries regularly updated with new content.
And nearly everyone expects the sport to continue to grow, including CrossFit Long Beach’s Cross who noted that the number of local competitions, affiliates and members show no sign of stopping. In response to increasing demand from fans, the CrossFit Games released a second allotment with limited access to some of the vendor villages around the event. Over 4,000 gyms worldwide now operate under the CrossFit flag, following the principles of founder Glassman, who created the first CrossFit in Santa Cruz in 2000. Each day, Glassman would post new workouts online, designed to be followed with near exact precision by an increasing number of former college athletes, active duty and discharged military, and law enforcement professionals looking for ways to maintain an elite level of fitness. Exercises are usually combined and athletes compete to finish their workouts against the clock. That includes the Paleo Shack, which sells wild Pacific-caught Mahi Mahi, and Burger Lounge which uses beef from grass-fed cows. CrossFit is in the second year of a media partnership with ESPN — competitions are broadcast live on ESPN 3, and CrossFit produced 12 episodes for ESPN 2.

CrossFit Games General Manager Justin Bergh said they sold 1,100 of those tickets (also $50) during the first 90 minutes they went on sale Monday, with another 3,000 to go. Everything from specialty workout shoes to nutritional supplements to designer clothes is available and for many spectators, the games are a once-a-year shopping opportunity to pick up new workout equipmemt.
