OVT Trios celebrating.jpg



The Throwdown Series is a premier Functional Fitness competition, renowned for its thrilling events held in Penticton and Abbotsford, British Columbia. Drawing in 300-500 competitors from Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, these competitions have become a staple in the fitness community. In 2022, amidst the challenges posed by Covid, the event was hosted free of charge for registered athletes from 2020, transforming Skaha Beach in Penticton into a vibrant arena for athletic excellence.

Now, the excitement continues as we gear up for the Okanagan Valley Throwdown (OVT) on April 20th & 21st at the Penticton Trade and Convention Center. Registration is open, offering athletes a chance to showcase their skills in an electrifying atmosphere. Notably, in 2024, both the OVT and the Fraser Valley Throwdown (FVT) on September 27th to 29th, held at the new event location, the Richmond Olympic Oval, are proudly recognized as the first CrossFit Licensed Events in Western Canada. This prestigious recognition elevates the series to new heights, cementing its status as a leader in the Functional Fitness community.

This shift promises a fresh experience, set against the backdrop of Richmond's iconic sporting facility. Looking ahead to 2025, we're thrilled to announce the inaugural year of the Bow Valley Throwdown in Calgary. More details will be unveiled in the summer, offering athletes and fitness enthusiasts another opportunity to engage in the exhilarating world of Functional Fitness competition. Each event within the Throwdown Series features a diverse range of individual and team divisions, with workouts designed to challenge athletes of all levels. From weightlifting to gymnastics, participants can expect a comprehensive test of their functional fitness abilities, culminating in the crowning of champions who embody the epitome of Overall Fitness.
