This is an annual competition in which competitors from across the globe come to showcase their abilities.
The CrossFit games began in 2007 and have taken every summer since.
Games are televised on ESPN and are sponsored by Reebok.
The competition is for both men and women. It also has different age divisions.
Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit is a Christian, he also considers himself to be a "Rabid 'Libertarian.'" However, this does not speak for everyone who participates in the program, and is therefore a member of the culture. It does show what the foundation of the culture is/started out as.
This culture is not a city-state, nation, or nation-state because it is a workout program that people participate in; therefore they have created a culture spanning across the United States, as well as worldwide.
Yes, the culture cooperates with other cultures because people who are a part of the CrossFit culture come from all different racial background and cultures.
CrossFit does not own land, but they do train their instructors who either go on to own their own gym or work at certified CrossFit facilities.
The CrossFit culture has a partnership with Reebok, which generates an income from the royalties that they pay to CrossFit.
Other than these factors, it is impossible to determine the economic climate of a culture that is a workout program.
CrossFit is most common in urban areas.

For example most are found in New York, Seattle and Los Angeles.
