Here's a highlight video showcasing a few of the Apocalypse Survivors as well as the eventual winner of the contest and now, officially, the Fittest Man in Pasadena.
So what happened to Crossfit? Well, while Crossfit training methods are good for general fitness, random workouts, will produce random results. When training for a fitness challenge, a specific sport or event, random workouts and exercises aren't enough. Top Fitness/Strength and Conditioning coaches know this, and that's why "workout programs" are favored over single exercises, or daily random workouts.
I'm very proud of the Fittest Man in Pasadena, Ricardo Robles, not only did he survive the Apocalypse, and put up the best time, he's also a Fat X Program graduate! I personally put him through it. He's also my older brother, an MMA fighter and elementary school teacher.
