Watching the competition will be exciting for both the most ardent CrossFit fans and first-time viewers, as functional fitness is dynamic and visually enjoyable – athletes compete in diverse and attractive disciplines that include both weightlifting and the elements of Olympic gymnastics, overcoming various obstacles and endurance tests in multiple combinations. In this kind of competition, athletes often find out about the tasks to complete only on the day of the competition, which makes them to adapt to yet unknown challenges in quite a short time.
