10 Awesome Workouts to Watch at CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town Sanctioned Event

The first African Sanctional Event kicks off!

The CrossFit® Fittest in Cape Town Sanctioned Event is now live! Check out a selection of the challenging workouts that the athletes will be tackling over the course of the event! 

“We have proudly hosted the best athletes and teams that South Africa has had to offer, stand podium since our competition began in 2011. We now look forward to having the best in this country measure their capacity against some of the best in the world.

We believe that a fitness test must have an unknown and unknowable factor. In the past, Fittest in Cape Town has tested different outdoor venues such as beach workouts and other creative ways of testing the athletes abilities to find the truly fittest in the field each year.

With only the first place winner in each division of CrossFit Fittest in Cape Town 2019, walking away with a ticket to the CrossFit Games 2019, we know that the stakes are high and we intend to test the athletes in every single aspect of their fitness, to make sure we find the very best to represent Fittest in Cape Town at the Games!

With an estimated 450 athletes competing in CrossFit Fittest in Cape Town 2019, we can only expect the energy to be electric and cannot wait to see them all take on the Green Point Athletics Stadium by storm!”¹

NEWS: In 2019 we are putting a rig on the beach for the first time in the history of Fittest in Cape Town! —- In collaboration with our good friends from @dhlcliftonsurflifesaving and our epic Official Equipment Partner @mifitness_za we are finalizing a vision that we’ve had for the last 3 years and we can’t wait to test out some proper CrossFit on the beach. —- CrossFit FiCT 2019’s “Mitch Buchannon 2019” mixes CrossFit’s original three modalities in a classic chipper style event. But here’s the twist: the Athletes won’t know exactly what their water element is until they get to the beach. Prior to the event start our instructors from the Clifton Lifesavers will offer some instructions before 3-2-1-go.. Who’s your favorites to take this one? #CrossFit #FiCT2019 #Sanctionals #Cliftonlifesavers #crossfitgames #fittestincapetown #fittestinafrica #beachworkout #mifitness

The next released Individual WOD for CrossFit FiCT 2019 will be a Heavy one. — The Spotlight has been a staple of FiCT since 2016 and this year it takes a slightly different format in "The Spotlight Ladders" when up to 6 athletes at a time will race towards the spectator stands and through 5 barbells with increasing loads. — The female version of "The Spotlight Ladders" is presented by our Official Recovery Drink @enduradesports, and the male version by our Official Equipment Partner @mifitness_za. —- This will be the flow: After all athletes have gone through Wave 1, the athletes with the 12 fastest times will move on to Wave 2. After Wave 2 the 6 fastest will go in to Wave 3, "The Finals of the Ladders" – where the athletes will also face the heaviest barbells. — Weights will be unannounced until the day of the event but if you were planning on 'only going to the stadium on the Saturday', you might wanna take another day off from work and join us as this fast & furious event which will take place from just after 17.00 on FRIDAY afternoon! PS. Swipe to the end for an example of the view that the athletes will face before each race, but in front of 100’s of fans! 😎 #CrossFit #FiCT2019 #sanctionals #crossfitgames #fittestincapetown #fittestinafrica

In 2018 we tested both the Individual and the Team field with 400m Run's for time – and guess what? At CrossFit FiCT 2019 we do it again! — Some FiCT history: Last year the Individuals 400m Run was a "half point"-scored event in combination with a Hand Stand Walk & a Heavy carry. In 2017 we had a little 50 & 30kg d-ball surprise waiting for the Teams on the starting line as they approached their then M&F-pair relay. Last year we had a straight forward 4x400m Relay which saw the fastest Teams separated by only seconds before we gave them a full minute of rest before going into that event's second part which was a Team 400m Weighted Run. —- It's always good to know your history, but will the 2019 versions be the same as any of the previous tests? Only time will tell… #CrossFit #FiCT2019 #Sanctionals #fittestincapetown #fittestinafrica #crossfitgames #runforrestrun #knowyourhistory

Here we go: first released Individual WOD of CrossFit FiCT 2019 is a faster twist of classic workout. Note that there’s also a mandatory 200m Run after the CTB Pull Ups and after the Push Ups. Hold on and go unbroken for 25 reps or go for a penalty run..? —- [SWIPE for Arena Layout and WOD Flow]. —- “Sprint Murph” is presented by our Official Equipment Partner @mifitness_za and will take part at the Green Point Athletics Stadium. —- NB: As usual we may choose to not reveal all details of each WOD and will avoid answering questions about anything purposely left out. We are also not necessarily releasing the workouts in the order they will be performed during the competition. #knowyourhistory —- #CrossFit #FiCT2019 #Sanctionals #fittestincapetown #fittestinafrica
