Overview

After a week of grueling competition, Tia Toomey and Katrin Davidsdottir waited the longest five minutes of their lives for the announcement of the 2016 CrossFit Games winner. The finalists had been training, eating, and living for this competition for the past year. While the points were being tallied, they were already preparing for the year ahead.

This documentary from filmmakers Heber Cannon, Mariah Moore, Marston Sawyers, and Ian Wittenber chronicles the journey to the pinnacle of the human physique. Fittest on Earth goes behind the scenes of the 2016 CrossFit Games to peek into the lifestyle and competitive mentality of top CrossFit athletes.

"CrossFit is really a lifestyle. It's a philosophy. It's a belief. It's a way of taking care of your body... of preparing yourself for anything that the world throws at you."
