CrossFit Mayhem has been a major player in elite fitness for over a decade. What began as a couple of dudes making up their own workouts in a rural barn has grown to thousands of athletes following Mayhem programming across the globe.

Sixty-seven individuals following Mayhem Athlete’s Competitor programming track qualified to the 2023 CrossFit Games Semifinals. With backfills, that increases to an estimated 75 athletes out of the 600 total competing at Semifinals.

  • That means more than 1 in every 10 Semifinalists belong to Mayhem Nation.

For Mayhem athletes Tyler Christophel, Sam Cournoyer, and Paige Powers, success has come early in the 2023 season. Each of the three athletes earned a personal best worldwide Open finish with 4th, 6th, and 2nd, respectively, and as of leaderboard finalization on Monday, a ticket to the North America East Semifinals in Orlando, FL.
