To get in the spirit of the 2013 Reebok CrossFit Games, ESPN’s Wellness Team recently hosted an ESPN Fitness Challenge for employees on the Bristol, Conn. campus green. Employees were put through a series of six high-intensity exercises, which included kettle bell swings, bear crawls and burpee broad jumps.

In the video above employees, including SportsCenter anchor Kevin Connors, shared their thoughts before and after the challenge.
