Have you ever tried explaining the CrossFit Games to someone who does not know about CrossFit?
Actor Max Greenfield from popular American TV Series ‘New Girl’ had a chat with talk show host, Seth Meyers about attending the Reebok CrossFit Games and his little-known obsession with the obscure sport.
“Everyone goes to these (CrossFit Games) events dressed in their CrossFit gear, as if, just in case a CrossFit workout breaks out, I’m ready. It would be like going to a (American) Football game dressed in shoulder pads,” joked Greenfield about the audience, including himself.
Greenfield began CrossFit in 2010 and has attempted every CrossFit Open. He says that it’s more than just hours in the gym that lead to these feats of strength in the Open each year; it’s the energy that comes from an entire community working out together and encouraging one another that sets the Open apart.
