To be called the Fittest on Earth, one would have to be capable of conquering a number of both physical and mental challenges. In the year of 2020, those challenges were plentiful. "Resurgence" captures all the drama as the organization of CrossFit pivots to pull off an in-person event amidst a world pandemic. Developing a new competition format to narrow a large field of athletes to only 5 men and 5 women. These athletes descend on a small ranch in California to take on whatever challenges are necessary to be crowned the Fittest on Earth.



  • One of the weaker CFG documentaries

    By lkvahgoihang
    Maybe blame it (like everything else) on the pandemic but the pacing in this documentary felt off. Just when it felt like the directors were building up to a crescendo, the moment would inevitably end with a thud. They must’ve had a pretty limited budget and staff because despite only needing to cover ten athletes in every event, there were at least a couple events where they didn’t even mention at least an athlete or two, let alone show you any footage of them competing. This one was just really missing that intensity I’m used to getting from these and obviously it wasn’t from lack of talent on the field so I don’t know where else to lay the blame than at the feet of the directors.
  • Beautiful, Raw, Emotional, and Real

    As a CrossFit fan, you already know the ending of this story. However, to see the emotion, drama, and action this documentary catches adds so much more to it. If you are a fan of greatness, this is for you!

    What more is there to say?!
  • Great film! When it has sound.

    By Sarah Savannah
    Film is great! But multiple play attempts have no sound. Have seen online I’m not the only one dealing with it but can’t find a solution. Takes a few starts to get audio, sometimes the audio plays fast, sometimes slow. Not a great viewing experience thus far, but hopeful for the future.
  • Best Buttery Bros film yet

    By Joachim7589
    The Buttery Bros films keep getting better and better, whether in terms of shooting, editing, pacing and overall, entertaining. It also offers a surprisingly bittersweet ending. Time for their first narrative feature and the 2018 Games doc!
