CrossFit Games 2018 Regionals: How to Watch, Dates, Times, Schedule for TV, Streaming

The 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games Regionals are happening now in the three-stage quest to find the "Fittest on Earth," so it's time to get caught up on all things CrossFit and gear up for the last level of competition before the summer championships. The Regional fields are the best of the best from the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games Open competition that wrapped up after five weeks of workouts around the world. 

What are the CrossFit Games again?

Glad you asked. The CrossFit Games are three stages of fitness competitions that run from February into August. Called "one of the fastest growing sports in America" by Forbes, the games utilize everything from high-intensity exercises to big-scale challenges, like an ocean swim, to "test, not train, fitness" and identify the world's fittest workout warriors.

The first stage, the Open competition, took place in CrossFit affiliate gyms from late February until March 26.

Who makes it to Regionals?

Anyone who registered for the Open workouts was eligible to advance. Those with the best scores from each of 18 global regions moved on to Regionals, which will include three days of live workouts and identify a group of final contestants -- a group that's whittled down to 40 men, 40 women, 40 teams, 80 teenagers and 240 "masters," who compete for various championships at the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games.
