Last weekend our Fitness Director Andy and friend Stu took part in the Hyrox event in Manchester. They absolutely loved the event and so did LOTS of other people too!
Its great to spread awareness about these amazing events to get more and more people involved in the health and fitness culture that we are striving to develop.
So what is Hyrox?
Hyrox is a fitness event that challenges participants in various physical activities and tests their endurance and strength.
It typically involves a combination of running, weightlifting, and bodyweight exercises, with participants competing against each other in timed or scored events.
The events are designed to push participants to their limits and are often held in outdoor or obstacle course-style locations. The focus is on overall fitness, with participants competing in various categories based on age, gender, and skill level.
Hyrox events aim to create a supportive and challenging environment for fitness enthusiasts to test their abilities and improve their fitness. There are friends and families supporting each other at the events, the music is loud and everyone is loving life!
Is it for you?
Hyrox events are open to anyone who is interested in participating and challenging themselves physically. There are usually categories based on age and gender, allowing participants of different fitness levels to compete against others of similar abilities. However, it's important to note that Hyrox events can be physically demanding and require a certain level of fitness, so participants should be in good health and capable of participating in high-intensity physical activities.
You don't have to be affiliated to a gym either which is really cool.
Ok I am interested! Where do I get started??
There are a number of affiliated Hyrox gyms in the UK. There are also a number of Hyrox qualified coaches! However, you don't need to be affiliated to get started. Head over to the Hyrox website where you can find all the information you need right here!
