Behind the Scenes of the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games – Part 2

April 17, 2016

The second hour-long installment of the “Behind the Scenes” video from the 2015 CrossFit Games is now online… If you’re a fan of the Games, this is a no brainer.

In case you missed it, here’s part 1…


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 2 of five, Matossian shadows competitors before and after Event 3—Murph—and asks prying questions about everything from nutrition and training to self-doubt and hair care.

Jonne Koski, who holds first place after two events, talks about his father’s pressuring him to be an athlete.

“For a teenager he was a pain in the ass sometimes, but I’m really thankful that he didn’t give up on me. I wouldn’t be here without him,” he says.

In the moments before the event, Matossian eavesdrops on Games Director Dave Castro’s pep talk with the athletes before Murph, a Hero workout named for Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Michael P. Murphy.

“This workout is something special. It’s bigger than this weekend.”

Matossian is also there as athletes cross the finish line in varying degrees of distress, seeking water and shade.

“I’ve never felt so bad in my life,” Sara Sigmundsdottir says once she’s able to speak.

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.
