Storyline

The 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games were a grueling five-day, 15-event test to find the fittest man and woman on Earth. "Fittest on Earth: A Decade of Fitness" follows the dramatic story of the top athletes who qualified and competed and offers an inside look at what it takes to be among the world's elite athletes, both in training and on the competition floor. The CrossFit Games challenge competitors to perform intense physical tasks, but the hardest part is sometimes mental. Athletes often learn the details of the events only minutes before they begin, and everyone handles the pressure differently. Which of these fierce competitors will rise to the top and earn the title of Fittest on Earth?

great if you need a bit of motivation
14 June 2017 | by facebook-653-970870See all my reviews

felt i had to add a review to balance out the 'cynical' one already posted

I really enjoyed this documentary & I certainly didn't feel it was just a 'self glorified ad' - nor do I agree with the other criticisms in that review

Frankly I believe what you take from this documentary depends on your mindset

Persoanally I found it mildly inspirational & motivating & also enjoyed watching how the competition panned out & the discussions with the main competitors as it progressed

The other reviewer is just a glass half empty type & overly cynical & I suspect has no real interest in fitness
