Intense sets, body changing workouts and everyone's an athlete - no matter what their fitness level.
That's the idea behind Crossfit.
Even though it has been around for nearly a decade, over the last several years the fitness craze has exploded in the Roanoke Valley.
Saturday, Brickhouse Crossfit in Roanoke hosted its "garage games."
People of all levels competed against each other and themselves in a variety of activities.
Organizers say the games are more of a "contest of will" than physical power - that's why crossfit has become so popular.
"It's really more of a sport of fitness than a fitness system. So we consider our training as practice time as you would have with any other sport. And, we have varied functional movements done at high intensity. That's the beauty of the program, all the workouts are different, all the movements are different," explains Brickhouse's Amanda Forrester.
These local "garage games" are held about a week before the national games are scheduled to take place.
