The Fittest Games is an event Crossfit Central has hosted for the past 10 years. Year after year it continues to grow and get bigger and bigger. It is THE biggest functional fitness competition in our region. If you are wondering if you should dip your toes in a local competition, this should be it!
In order to compete in The Fittest Games, all athletes will need do an Online Qualifier which consists of 2 weeks where you will complete 2-3 workouts a week. We already plan to program these workouts in Crossfit Central’s classes so you will not have to worry about doing them on your own. The Qualifier workouts will take place Oct. 17th- 30th and it’s only $25 to register.
There are 4 individual divisions this year: Pro, Amateur, Intermediate, and Scaled. I believe many of my clients at Crossfit Central have an opportunity to compete in the Intermediate or Scaled divisions. The Intermediate/Scaled division was created to give athletes that are new to competing a chance to earn their spot. These athletes are not proficient, or may not have gymnastic skills such as muscle ups or toes to bar, or advanced barbell skills such as high repetition snatches and clean and jerks. These workouts will be modified appropriately for this division. So if you have a pull up and a handstand push up, I think you should try your hand at competing!
The breakdown of how many athletes move past the Online Qualifier:
- Intermediate Men – 75
- Intermediate Women – 45
- Scaled Men – 50
- Scaled Women – 30
The Fittest Games will take place January 28th & 29th at the Travis County Expo Center.
