CrossFit Games Analysts Sean Woodland and Tommy Marquez bring you all the latest information, updates, and analysis on the sport of fitness, and the CrossFit community.
Building the CrossFit Hall of Fame
If CrossFit were to have a Hall of Fame, what would it look like and how would it be created? Chase Ingraham and Bill Grundler join Sean Woodland to answer those questions. The three of them discuss the selection process, who would be on the selection committee, where the Hall of Fame would be located and how the community could be involved.
Top Off-Season Questions
With the bulk of the off-season still in front of us, Sean and Tommy go through the things they will be watching the most closely and the questions they hope to have answered in the coming months.
Fitness with Friends - Valerie Cohen
Valerie Cohen is the 2-time women's lower extremity CrossFit Games Champion. She won 6 of the 8 events this year at the Games and finished 2nd in the other two.

Fitness with Friends #101 - Emily Rolfe
Emily Rolfe had quite the scare this past August at the CrossFit Games. She had to be rushed to emergency surgery after the opening event and could have lost her arm if not for the quick actions of the Games medical staff. Rolfe talks about what happened to her in Bike to Work that ultimately led to her being taken to the hospital, why she initially wanted to keep competing, how she manages training for the Games while having a full-time job and what it’s like going up against athletes who are half her age.

Another offseason competition is in the books. Sean and Tommy recap the Madrid CrossFit Championship and share their top takeaways from last weekend. Vice President of Sports for Loud and Live Dylan Maltisky joins the show to talk about the changes that are being made for Wodapalooza in 2023 and what fans can expect to see in Miami. Plus, PRs and No Reps and why Tommy is feeling a little bit older today.
Great show- just wanted to propose a show segment
At what point should CrossFit introduce a CrossFit hall of fame?
Perfect for all things CrossFit!
A favorite podcast of mine for the last few years. Sean and Tommy provide excellent and in depth coverage of the sport of CrossFit and they make it fun! Great interviews, thorough reporting, and consistent posts. Plus an awesome Patreon experience!
Painful to listen to
I love all things CrossFit but had to delete this show after subscribing for a few months. They never say anything honest, surprising, or critical about CrossFit. It’s all a bore. Sometimes they have interesting guests - but never toss an interesting question their way. And the ads are interminable.
