Elite Fitness League (EFL) CQ Invitational & Same Sex Pairs Throwdown

Event description

The Elite Fitness League’s mission is to provide high quality CrossFit competitions for Athletes in the wider CQ area in a supportive and community focused environment.

Established in 2014, the Elite Fitness League was born from the desire to provide regional CrossFitters an opportunity to experience that ‘game day’ feeling year round. While each affiliate has roaring talent within their walls, we believe that testing yourself against the unfamiliar is the key to securing the competitive edge that will see more athletes at CrossFit sanctioned events both in Australia and internationally.

On 31 October & 1 November 2020, the Elite Fitness League is hosting an INDIVIDUAL throw-down as well as a showdown for the top SAME SEX PAIRS in Central QLD.

The individual division is RX only, and is based on expressions of interest which can be sent to competions@crossfitcq.com.au.

Same Sex Pairs divisions will be RX and scaled ONLY, however there will also be recognition and prizes for the top Masters and Teens competing within each division.

Check out our FAQs below, and follow the Facebook event for the latest and ongoing communication leading up to the event.
