Behind the Scenes of the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games – Part 1

April 16, 2016

A lot of people have been waiting for this one… Sevan Matossian has just put out the first part of his annual “Behind the Scenes” video from the 2015 CrossFit Games. Lots of raw footage of how the fudge is packed! Dig in!

Executive Producer Sevan Matossian once again gives us unprecedented access to the fittest athletes on the planet, catching CrossFit Games competitors in intimate moments and vulnerable positions.

In Part 1 of five, Matossian gets up close and sometimes uncomfortably personal as he interviews athletes before and after the Pier Paddle and Sandbag 2015 events.

Matossian—also Director of CrossFit Media—chats with 2014 second-place finisher Mat Fraser about the pressure that comes with being the favorite before catching him throwing up in the bushes because of nerves.

“It’s good luck,” Scott Panchik says with a smile.

When asked whether she thought about quitting after failing to qualify for the Games in 2014, Lindsey Valenzuela is blunt: “I went through that for about a week, and then I was like, ‘Fuck that. I want to be here.’”

Multi-year Games veteran Neal Maddox, who was stung by a stingray at Hermosa Beach, offers a pat summary of the pain brought on by the day’s events: “Shit sucked, man.”

Butterfly pull-ups can be fun to learn and serve a great purpose for athletes. When the time comes for newbies to practice the butterfly kip, I prefer to use a technique called “Blocking Movement” for Reverse Grip Kipping Pull-ups.
