The aim of the event is to bring the fitness community together. To connect athletes of different fitness levels, training facilities and regions.

To host a high quality functional fitness sporting event with the goal of growing in scale and improving in quality annually.
With a competitive category for the more serious athletes looking to pit their abilities against other athletes and for a tough fitness challenge; as well as social category for those looking for a fun and easier workout, which is more inclusive to all fitness levels.
For the first year (last year) we had 100+ athletes competing and hope to entertain a larger field this year due to the massive success and great feedback from the event.
The event will test the Athletes in the following modalities:
- Metabolic Conditioning
- Coordination and Accuracy
- Gymnastic Ability
The details of the event workouts will remain a secret. Two-three weeks prior to the event, one of the workouts will be released. One week prior, a second workout will be released. The third and fourth components will remain a secret until the morning before the event.
The choices in exercises will be varying in complexity from simple to moderate complexity. You needn't be an advanced gymnast or competitive Olympic lifter to participate but a good handle on basic CrossFit movements and form is essential, especially for the competitive category.
Judges will be picked by the event organisers and thoroughly briefed for movement standards.
