After the 2022 CrossFit Games, Brent Fikowski knew he needed to make some changes if he wanted to compete with the best in the world again.

Fikowski, a two-time Games podium finisher and eight-time competitor, placed 16th in 2022, which led to the realization that he had “lost a step on my competitors,” Fikowski said. 

  • “That was my own doing, and there was something that needed to change in my training to get myself back into the running as one of the best in the world,” he added. 

So Fikowski and his team “took a really hard look” at his training leading up to 2022 and hatched a game plan that involved seeking out different coaches “for insights and feedback,” he explained, and then overhauling his training program heading into 2023.
