“You’re gonna take on new challenges. You’re gonna try new things and that doesn’t go away just because you’ve reached a certain age. … That’s not what we’re about as a community.”

Just like individual athletes, age-group competitors at the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games were put through the test, taking on new and unique challenges appropriate for their divisions and fitness levels.

In this episode of Run the Test, Competition Director Adrian Bozman shares insight on programming for age-group athletes at the CrossFit Games and beyond.

Discover the value of attempting new challenges — regardless of age level — and the benefits of CrossFit as a catalyst for learning and playing new sports, and trying other physical activities.

Also in this episode, find out why, “if you show up to the CrossFit Games, you should be getting an experience that you can’t get anywhere else,” is a statement Boz intends to ring true for all divisions.
