The 2017 CrossFit Games are coming to Madison, WI!!!
CrossFit Madtown has a long history in CrossFit, Opening in 2009, CrossFit Madtown was the first CrossFit gym in Madison and was one of the first few hundred CrossFit gyms out of what is now 10s of thousands. Coach Skipp and Keysha Benzing have been involved with CrossFit since the very early days and were two of the first 50 individuals to be Crossfit certified by Greg and Lauren Glassman in June 2005.

CrossFit Games History
If you have never heard of the CrossFit games here is a brief history from games.crossfit.com:
”Who is the fittest? How do you know? Since 2007, the CrossFit Games have evolved to answer these questions. Each year the Games are a more comprehensive test of fitness, and the athletes raise the level of competition to unprecedented heights. The average regional athlete in 2017 will be dramatically more capable than the world’s best in 2007.
Several unique characteristics define the CrossFit Games. The Games change every year and oftentimes, the details are not announced until right before each event. Athletes train year-round for a competition that is almost completely a mystery. When they reach the Games, they put their training and mental fortitude to the test and take on a rigorous, broad-ranging test of overall physical capacity. At the close of competition, the Fittest on Earth™will have clearly distinguished themselves.”
