Reebok has announced that for the first time ever, fans will be able to play fantasy sports with the athletes at this year’s Reebok CrossFit Games. They’re calling it “CrossFit Games Pick’Em.”

Veteran CrossFit Games athlete James Hobart, who is taking a break from this year’s Games to do more coaching and media work at CrossFit HQ, took to YouTube to break down how CrossFit Games Pick’Em works.

Just like you’d set up any fantasy sport, or enter into a bracket in any big sports tournament, you can do the same for the CrossFit Games by selecting the top ten men, top ten women, and top five teams.

All you have to do to enter is head over to to make your choices. And remember to read the rules and regulations. Entries will close the day before competition starts, so get your picks in soon, and good luck.

The day before competition is August 1st, and the site will lock at 11:59pm EST.

So if you’re interested, head to their site, plug in your email, and get started. If you get the perfect bracket (or closest to it), you can win a million bucks. Even if you don’t, the first prize is $20,000 worth of Rogue equipment; second place could be a Rogue Home Gym, one-year gym membership, one-year supply of Whole Foods groceries, one-year supply of FitAid, or a thousand-dollar gift card. Third place gets two tickets to the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games or a $500 gift card.

You don’t even have to guess the final amount of points the athletes will earn, but in case there’s a tie for first, you are asked to guess how many points the first place female will have at the end of the competition. (Somewhere between 0 and 1500. Katrin Davidsdottir finished with 984 last year.)

Good luck!

I’m a journalist and content producer with over seven years' reporting experience on four continents, with most of that spent covering health-related issues. My resume includes covering cholera outbreaks in Kenya and the clubbing scene in Shanghai, which is also where I wrote my first ever health article for an English language magazine. (It was on diarrhea.)After returning to Australia to finish up degrees in Journalism and International Relations I wound up in New York City where I’ve worked for Men’s Health, VICE, Popular Science and others. I try to keep health relatively simple — it’s mostly vegetables and sweat — but I live to explore the debates, the fringes, the niche, and the nitty gritty.
