Throughout these last few months, the world has experienced an incredible shift in how people interact with each other. Within our community and the industry as a whole, we have witnessed an amazing amount of solidarity of people virtually coming together, working toward their goals.
We are so impressed with the results from the first round of our Virtual Home Series, and we are thrilled to announce the HYROX Virtual Championships of Fitness! The competition will be open to everyone, but only one man and one woman can become the first Virtual Champions of Fitness.
Our partner for our HYROX Virtual Championships of Fitness is Laureus, a nonprofit organization that focuses on bettering the lives of children in underserved communities through the love of sports. Nelson Mandela inspired the concept behind Laureus, stating that sports can change the world and unite us all. His words have become more relevant than ever before during these uncertain times, and at HYROX we have seen an extreme amount of unity within our HYSOCIETY. Now more than ever, we want to help support Laureus in continuing to make a change in this world. Therefore, 50% of the entry fee will be going to Laureus Sport for Good to help them continue their mission.
At HYROX, we couldn’t agree more with the fact that sports unite us all. We have been so lucky with the family we’ve created, and we can’t wait to continue to expand this group of people!
This virtual championship can be done anywhere- at home, outdoors, or at the gym, but all workouts need to be filmed and will be judged after submission. There will be global rankings per category (body weight and equipment), which are then divided by gender and age group. The top three competitors of each group will receive prizes.
The virtual competition workout begins on July 3, 2020 and each of the 5 workouts will be active for 5 days before you need to submit your videos to be judged. After all the workouts, top athletes will compete in the Virtual Championships of Fitness Grand Final.
During the Virtual Championships, the top 3 athletes will be invited to compete head to head to compete to be crowned the Virtual Champions of Fitness
This competition is a great opportunity for athletes who plan to compete in Season 20/21 to get some extra training and competition practice before live events begin. Let’s unite in our one common goal: never stop competing.
