Finally, competitions are back
We feel the exact same way that you do.
We’re impatiently waiting to feel those unforgettable emotions and sensations that you get when you walk onto a CrossFit competition field: it’s a mix of high expectations, adrenaline and the fresh smell of a new rubber floor.
We want to see the post-workout effort, satisfaction and happiness knowing that we somehow made them happen.
This is why we’re honored and proud to have been chosen by the Silex CrossFit team as a technical partner for what will surely be a knock-out event: the Silex Classics.
The first edition is right around the corner, organized by the association Primal Functional Fitness and by Arthur and Line of Silex CrossFit & Cafè, a point of reference in Rennes.
We immediately connected with their staff that’s extremely enthusiastic, organized and proactive: this is just the beginning of a project that in the next few years will continue to grow until it becomes one of the most important French and European events.
The location and participants
The Silex Classics will take place in Rennes, France from the 20th to the 22nd of May at the Robert Poirier Stadium.
The Robert Poirier Stadium is a spacious and multipurpose structure that was recently built with a big outdoor area since it’s also a Track & Field Stadium and also has a large indoor space.
Both areas will be used in order to vary the exercises the athletes will do during the three days of competition.
Dopo aver aperto a novembre 2021 la registrazione per le fasi qualificatorie della competizione, sono After opening in November 2021, more than 900 athletes registered for the qualifications of the competitions, testing themselves through two weeks of qualifications in the first half of December, challenging their capabilities and athletic preparation with four different workouts with well-assorted exercises aimed at accurately assessing the fitness level of the participants.
Usually less than half of those will continue to the finals.
