Similar to the other documentaries ranked before it, this movie does a great job following the top crossfit athletes all around the world. It is always special for a viewer to get backstage passes to any sporting event or competition. With this movie viewers get just that, and they get to learn more about the individual athletes. This movie in particular is very special to the crossfit community because it was filmed at the 2016 Crossfit Games, meaning that it documented the 10 year anniversary of the first ever CrossFit games. Throughout the film the different ways that each individual competitor deals with immense pressure both physically and mentally are shared, and viewers therefore can feel as if they are getting to know the athletes on a more personal level.

5. Mat Fraser: Making A Champion

The last and final movie, ranked fifth on the list, is unique because it follows only one athlete throughout it. In the movie Making A Champion: Mat Fraser, the audience gets to follow one of the best athletes in the world on more of a day to day basis. This is great because unlike most crossfit movies which focus on one competition at a time, this documentary expands further into the hard work and effort put into the actual training. This movie is at number five because it could have included even more details about Mat Fraser's nutrition based routine, but other than that it does a great job of highlighting the previously named fittest man on earth.
