Change

[mov] [wmv] [iphone] By Greg Glassman, speaking about changes in CrossFit Games qualifying.

“The goal of this thing is two-fold: it’s to maximize participation and to find the fittest man and woman on Earth,” CrossFit founder and CEO Greg Glassman says as he discusses the significant changes to the format of the 2011 CrossFit Games.

“There is no aspect of this change that wasn’t an unavoidable consequence of explosive growth,” he says.

While the feedback hasn’t all been positive, Glassman says that those speaking out against the new format haven’t thought it through. He says the CrossFit Games Open will help realize the true purpose of the Games.

“It changes the landscape significantly, and it doubly reinforces the potential that we are truly going to find the fittest man and the fittest woman on Earth,” he says.

And rest assured, cheating won’t win you the title “Fittest on Earth.” According to Glassman, there are unavoidable issues in logistics and judging, but that won’t change with any format.

“The sanctity of the top placers, I think, is fairly guaranteed in what we’re doing,” he says.
