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 Reebok.com/Pickem 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 Reebok.com gift card. Third place gets two tickets to the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games or a $500 Reebok.com 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!

His next writing job was covering the nightlife scene in Shanghai. He’s written on a lot of things.After Shanghai, he went on to produce a radio documentary about bodybuilding in Australia before finishing his Master’s degrees in Journalism and International Relations and heading to New York City. Here, he’s been writing on health full time for more than five years for outlets like BarBend, Men's Health, VICE, and Popular Science.No fan of writing in the third person, Nick’s passion for health stems from an interest in self improvement: How do we reach our potential?Questions like these took him through a lot of different areas of health and fitness like gymnastics, vegetarianism, kettlebell training, fasting, CrossFit, Paleo, and so on, until he realized (or decided) that strength training fit best with the ideas of continuous, measurable self improvement.At BarBend his writing focuses a little more on nutrition and long-form content with a heaping dose of strength training. His underlying belief is in the middle path: you don’t have to count every calorie and complete every workout in order to benefit from a healthy lifestyle and a stronger body. Plus, big traps are cool.
