The Throwdown Series is a CrossFit style competition, historically held in Penticton and Abbotsford British Columbia. Each competition attracts between 300-500 competitors from teams all across Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. In 2022, due to the challenges of Covid, the event was held at no charge for registered athletes from 2020 - at the beautiful Skaha Beach in Penticton.
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 Rx 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.
