Josh's Favorite Gear
He’s played the role of the underdog and the comeback kid, but with three Top 10 CrossFit Games finishes to his credit, Josh Bridges is better described simply as one of the world’s top pound-for-pound athletes.
Bridges first took up CrossFit back in 2005, adapting some of his past skills as an amateur wrestler into a new, demanding athletic pursuit. Six years later, he would finally make his debut appearance at the 2011 CrossFit Games, and no one would soon forget it. At 5’5” and 160 pounds, the versatile, determined Bridges charged his way to a 2nd place overall finish, quickly making him among the most popular new faces in the sport.
Those fans would prove loyal, too, sticking with Josh as he rehabbed from a serious knee injury that cost him most of the 2012 competition season. Once recovered, the San Diego based Bridges picked up right where he left off, winning a SoCal Regional (2013) and excelling at the Games in 2013 (7th place) and 2014 (4th place). With back-to-back 1st place finishes in the California Regional in 2016 and 2017, he has proven at age 31 that he’s still a force to be reckoned with.
As part of the Rogue Signature Series, Josh has his own line of original products bearing his name, including the Bridges Series Rehband Knee Support and official Josh Bridges T-shirt.
