What is a “Fitness Challenge”?

Modeled after The CrossFit Games™ and other, similar CrossFit™ competitions around the world, our Fitness Challenges are, simply put, tests.  Each of our 3 competitions will be composed of 3 workouts targeting: strength, speed, muscular endurance, and cardiovascular conditioning.  These workouts are made up of a broad range of different functional movements.  You will lift heavy weights.  You will move your body through space.  And, you will work in aerobic and anaerobic work ranges.  And…you’ll do this for time and for total reps.


How does a “Fitness Challenge” work?

1. You register here for your spot.  Space IS limited.
2. There will be (3) workouts for you to complete.  One per week.
