One of the most unique and popular functional fitness competitions will take place at the Sant Jordi Club in Barcelona, Spain on Saturday, February 1. The Freakest Challenge Final returns for their fifth edition and features the top athletes in the sport of fitness in attendance. Our very own Justin LoFranco, Tommy Marquez and Michael McCoy will be on the ground to cover the fast-growing fitness competition, providing behind-the-scenes coverage, interviews with some of the top athletes in the sport of CrossFit and videos of all the action.
The one-day events starts at 5:00 AM PT and ends at approximately 11:00 AM PT.
How the Freakest Challenge Final Works
Eight teams will compete in a single-elimination, head-to-head tournament format until there are only two teams left in the final event. Workouts are announced on the day of the final, except for the final event itself, which is announced only minutes before the last two remaining teams duel head-to-head. The winner of that event will be crowned the Freakest Challenge Champion.
Each team will be paired with a Nike athlete-mentor. Those athletes are Mathew Fraser, Sara Sigmundsdottir, Lauren Fisher, Laura Horvath, Thuri Helgadottir, Noah Ohlsen, Lukas Hogberg and Willy Georges.
