Need a little inspiration? Make plans to watch supremely fit athletes hoist weights, sling giant ropes, jump, hurl kettlebells, climb and do pullups at the 2015 Fittest Games.
The event, hosted by CrossFit Central, will feature nearly 500 athletes in four divisions – pro, amateur, team and masters – vying for cash prizes.
Competition starts at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, at the Travis County Expo Center, 7311 Decker Lane. Single-day spectator tickets are $25 at the door Saturday and $20 Sunday.
A charity Workout of the Day, or WOD, is part of the lineup on Saturday. The first 100 athletes who raised $150 or more will compete to see how many reps of the “Flatwater, Find Yours” workout they can do in three one-minute rounds. Proceeds will benefit The Flatwater Foundation, which provides mental health services to families and individuals affected by cancer. Prizes including watches and speakers from Nixon, Dynamax balls and more.
And lest you think CrossFitters don’t have any fun, note that Michelob Ultra is on board as a presenting sponsor. Cheers.
