All athletes participating on competitive teams that may advance to Regionals are required to document their workouts and verify their compliance with the minimum requirement. This is especially true if there is any reason to question whether a member of a team meets the requirements. For example, an athlete who lives a long distance from the team gym, an athlete who coaches at a gym other than the team gym, or an athlete who has recently changed gyms must keep detailed records tracking the dates, times, and locations for all of their workouts.
All team athletes should be able to provide the following documentation:
- Training Log - The CrossFit Games has provided a training log for athletes to follow. All athletes must keep a detailed record of their workouts in a training log. Gym class check-in logs may not be sufficient. Ideally the athlete can also provide photo evidence of their training sessions.
- Photos - The athlete’s training log must be accompanied by supporting photographic evidence. An athlete must take date stamped photos or “selfies" that include an identifying feature of the gym for every training session. These photos are to be stored in a dedicated email or document folder to be retrieved as necessary.
- Social Media - Date stamped photos may alternatively be posted on a dedicated social media page (e.g., Facebook, Instagram) as a chronological record of workouts.
CrossFit Games staff may, at ANY time during the CrossFit Games season, require an athlete to produce documentation proving they have indeed met the team requirements. If the athlete cannot prove they meet all requirements, the team and individual athlete may be subject to disqualification.
Please consult the 2018 Competition Rulebook for details on Team Eligibility.
Any athlete requiring assistance with documenting workouts should email email@example.com PRIOR to the start of the season.
