Back to basics:
ELFIT Beach Warriors Back to Basics concept is super exciting for us as it’s kind of what ELFIT started as back in 2013, and we’re happy to be re-launching it but this time with a twist!
ELFIT Beach Warriors competition is pure fitness; There are no complex movements, using non-fancy mostly primitive equipment. Workouts don’t include any barbells, air bikes, kettlebells, rowers, or med balls…etc. It’s more of ropes, logs, sandbags & other things you’re most likely to find in nature. The beauty of the back to basics concept is that it suits all fitness levels & anyone can take part in. Teams should be ready for any physical as well as mental challenges.
Who can join?
Whether you are a Crossfitter (from rookies to elite athletes), you’re a runner, a triathlete, like to lift weights at the gym or even enjoy an occasional Vinyasa on the mat, this event is for you. Anyone and everyone who is into sports can join this fun & thrilling event.
You don’t have to be a weightlifter but you are required to carry, pull and throw some objects. No need to be a swimmer, but you just need enough skills to survive in the water. It’s still tough but fun. Beginners might not make it to the top of the leaderboard but they will definitely get out of their comfort zone, see how they stack up against others and enjoy the challenge & the overall experience.
