The 2017 Reebok CrossFit games are moving east after spending seven years in Carson, California making them more accessible than ever for fans from around the world to catch the action in person. It may be hard to picture trading in the sunny southern California vibes, but there is something about the Midwest that is fitting for the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games. Alliant Energy Center will host the event August 1st – 6th, 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin.
