The Reebok Bonus Program (RBP) is back. At the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games on Aug. 3-7, 2022, in Madison, WI, athletes who win an event while wearing Reebok footwear will receive an additional financial reward.
The return of the RBP was announced on June 29, 2022. It was featured at the 2021 CrossFit Games, offering athletes the chance to increase the prize pool even further. The prize pool for the 2022 Games is the largest in the contest’s history — $2,845,000. Per Reebok’s press release, the 2021 CrossFit season saw the RBP payout “a combined total of more than $400,000 in prize money,” with more than half of the competitive field participating in it the RBP.
At the 2022 NOBULL CrossFit Games, if any athlete wears the Reebok Nano X2, Nano X1 Froning, or Nanoflex Parafit TR for the full duration of an event they win, they will earn additional prize money with no limit on how much they can win. The prize money for the Elite divisions is pretty substantial:
- Individual Divisions — $12,000 for first-place finishers
- Team* Divisions — $12,000 for first-place finishers
- Masters/Teens/Adaptive Divisions — $1,200 for first-place finishers
*All winning Team members must be wearing approved Reebok footwear to be eligible for the RBP.

The inclusion of the Nanoflex Parafit TRs is a nod to Reebok’s debut adaptive collection, Fit to Fit, which launched in May 2022 in collaboration with American online shoe and clothing retailer Zappos. Reebok is “pledging to donate $50,000 to organizations committed to supporting the adaptive.”
Competing athletes at the 2022 CrossFit Games who wish to participate in the RBP must register via Reebok.com to sign a participation agreement. Reebok will email athletes a confirmation of their official agreements.
The announcement of the RBP for the 2022 Games occurred on the same day as the kickoff of the 2022 Last Chance Qualifier, where athletes who narrowly missed earning a spot in the Games via their respective Semifinals have one last opportunity to reach the sport’s biggest stage. The 2022 CrossFit Games will occur on Aug. 3-7, 2022, where reigning five-time Fittest Women on Earth® Tia-Clair Toomey will attempt to become the all-time winningest individual athlete in the history of the sport and reigning Fittest Man on Earth® Justin Medeiros will attempt to defend his crown for the second straight year.
