TYDAX Fitness Okanagan Valley Throwdown – Day 2
January 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 am
The TYDAX Fitness Okanagan Valley Throwdown is the original Throwdown Series event. It is presented by Hoodoo Adventure Company and Evolution Athletics. 2018 will be its fifth year and it will once again take place at Penticton’s 5,000 seat indoor arena, the South Okanagan Events Centre.
The CrossFit-style event involves athletes competing across several different team and individual divisions in a two day competition. Also included at the event are various food vendors and a broad range of fitness-minded companies from across Canada and the Okanagan.
During each Throwdown Series event, male and female athletes compete within various individual and team divisions over two days of competition. They face a series of workouts that are designed to accommodate novice to elite functional fitness athletes. Each event is programmed uniquely using movements that include weightlifting, powerlifting, medicine ball and kettlebell training, rowing, running, skipping, plyometrics, and gymnastics. The programming tests and rewards well-rounded functional fitness. At the end of the weekend, the individual or team with the best overall fitness level in each division comes out on top.
