“Don’t overlook the opportunity to achieve something, don’t be nervous, don’t hold back, give it all that you’ve got, because the moment may never come again.”

-Venus Williams

Above: CrossFit is proclaiming that the male and female winners of the CrossFit Games 2009 are the fittest on the planet!

The registration fee is $75 through the end of February. Beginning March 1, the fee will increase to $100. So get in while the getting’s good! If you have any questions about registration, contact NorCalCFRegionals@gmail.com or check out the NorCal Qualifier Blog.

Unlike the previous CrossFit Games (’07 and ’08), participants must qualify for the games at the Regional Qualifications. The NorCal Qualifier will take place May 2-3 in Aromas, CA, at the same location where the 2009 CF Games will be taking place just a couple months later. Only the top 5 males and top 5 females of the NorCal Region will qualify for the CrossFit Games. The number of spots per region was determined by the amount of affiliates located in the region. Hawaii is included in the NorCal region. The top 5 finishers from the CrossFit Games 2008 are automatically advanced to the CrossFit Games 2009. Let the games begin!
