The Reebok CrossFit Games 2014 are upon us. Around 100 competitors gathered in the California sun to give it all in the heat of battle. Each with their own demons. Each fighting their own battles. Each with their own story to tell. This video is a glimpse into the emotional side of CrossFit through all seventeen regional competitions across the globe.


This competitors in this video run the gamut of emotions, from the mix of nervousness and excitement before the workout, through the pain and frustration of fails and misses, to the elation and relief of victory. It's refreshing to see a video that doesn't just show the glamor, but also the grit and the grief that inevitably come along the way.


When you are sitting watching the CrossFit Games this year, watch not just for the obvious wins, but for the smaller, individual, emotional victories that are truly at the heart of the Reebok CrossFit Games.
