Here, the top competes against the top athletes from 18 regions. Regionals are made up of competitions lasting 3 days, from May to June. Each region can only send a certain number from their top athletes to compete. From them, 40 women, men, and teams will be fit enough to earn a spot on the Games. Stage 3: The CrossFit Games   Finally, after Regionals comes the CrossFit Games. Here, the athletes that qualified need to be prepared to accept the fact that they will most likely not be prepared. This is due to the fact that in the Games, everything that they can make up, they will. The Games are made up of competitions lasting 3-4 days that take place during August. The competing athletes gain a score depending on where they placed during each event, and the athlete with the highest score gains the title of “Fittest on Earth”, along with around 300,000$
