By now you’ve probably heard the rumors that one of the most popular workouts in the world of fitness is the CrossFit® method.
Now you can add another one to the list: a three-week workout with mixed martial arts (MMA) champion Micky Mouseover.
The plan was hatched by a small group of fitness enthusiasts who wanted to give their friends a chance to try the sport before heading off to the gym, and they found inspiration in the recent success of a similar program called the Crossfit Challenge.
“There was just a lot of enthusiasm around it,” said the co-founder of the Crossfitter Challenge, Josh Cope.
“Everyone wanted to do it.
There was just such a need for it.
We were like, ‘Okay, what if we did it for free?’
I think that was the idea.”
After a couple of weeks, the team began getting emails and calls from people all over the country who were interested in participating.
After the first couple of people signed up, the program expanded.
Soon, it had a Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube channel, and a website.
After the success of the first CrossFit Challenge, Cope said, it became clear that he and his team weren’t going to stop there.
So, in January 2017, they started to add new events and started the CrossFitter Challenge 2.0, which has since grown to include events in London, Tokyo, and Amsterdam.
“It’s really the perfect storm of passion and technology,” Cope told me.
“It’s kind of a mix of the old and the new.
You have the old-school elements of a regular workout, with some elements of technology, and the Cross Fit Challenge is the new-school element of CrossFit.”
The new event is called CrossFit 2.5, and it includes more than 40 events in 35 cities across the U.S. This year’s events will be held on March 9, 2020.
The CrossFit challenge was originally conceived to give athletes the chance to compete against their peers and to build a strong community.
“The goal was to build an awesome community of people who want to participate,” Coe said.
“I think that we really nailed that.”
But, as he explained, the challenge itself is no longer just about competing.
It’s also about building a strong fitness community.
This is a key aspect of Crossfit that most fitness enthusiasts are unfamiliar with.
“The challenge is just about making sure that people are motivated and willing to work hard, and have fun,” Cose said.
This isn’t just about the physical exercise itself.
The team wants to foster social and emotional wellness as well.
“Our goal is to build up a community of folks who are going to give back,” Cote said.
As an example, they’re hosting a three day fitness workshop on March 4 and March 7 at the CrossLIVE Fitness Center in San Francisco.
The event will be open to the public and feature a range of workouts, with an emphasis on cardiovascular fitness.
The team has also partnered with the San Francisco Recreation Department to bring CrossFit to the bay area for an event that will take place on March 19, 2019.
The goal of the event is to help CrossFit athletes prepare for the upcoming Winter Olympics in the Winter Games in South Korea.
Cope explained that the team wants participants to feel comfortable walking the streets and enjoying the outdoors.
“This is a community event,” he said.
The idea is to give the athletes a chance for self-exploration and to find something they can work on after they’re done.
“We’re also going to have a fitness center where you can get a yoga class and some other things to build your fitness,” he added.
The goal of CrossFIT is to make it easy for people to participate in the fitness world.
“So you go into the gym and it’s a bunch of people, and then you get into the training room and it is a bunch more people,” Cotes said.
This allows CrossFit enthusiasts to get together and try to work on a common goal, while still sharing in a social experience that is free of financial barriers.
“You don’t have to pay anything,” Cokes said, noting that participants can sign up for a free membership to CrossFit.
The events run through the end of March, so participants can get back into the CrossTrainer community as soon as possible.
This kind of social interaction is something that the Cross Fitness Challenge is known for.
“People are excited about the social aspect of the sport,” Coface said.
But he added that CrossFit has also been a boon for the sport of fitness in general.
“For CrossFit, it’s been the biggest thing that CrossFitness has ever done,” he explained.
“A lot of people are like, this is going to change the world.
We’re really excited about this.”
