Looking to dip your toes in the water of competition in Miami?

No better way than through the Wodapalooza Gauntlet…


Want to get a taste of what it’s like to compete on the big stage under the Miami sun? Now is your chance.

We're bringing back The Gauntlet, WZA’s individual competition format! Beginning on Thursday of Wodapalooza, it features individual WOD’s, where only the fittest and mentally toughest will emerge victorious.

The biggest difference? This year is programmed by Mat Fraser himself, and his HWPO Training.


While there are many people on the fence about competing in a full-blown three days of competition, as well as people simply unable to secure a spot to compete over Friday through Sunday, Team WZA wanted to give as many people the opportunity to celebrate and test their fitness with us at WZA as possible.

We understand it’s tough to secure a spot, but with the Gauntlet, you’ll get a chance to throw your hat into the ring, and experience what it's like to compete under hte bright lights.


Whether your a local South Floridian, someone volunteering over WZA weekend, or athletes coming into town to spectate, why not earn your weekend's fitness in one hour? Calling on these folks to come enjoy an hour throw down. Whether it’s your first time competing, or you’re an experienced veteran looking to earn a spot on the podium, this is for YOU!

The WZA Gauntlet will feature a Scaled, Intermediate, & Rx Individual Division. No teams (yet)!


It starts with the qualification roundn, on Thursday, January 13th through Saturday, with one-hour heats scheduled throughout the day.

Sunday will find the top 10 men and women through the qualification round in all three divisions scaled, intermediate, and Rx, compete on Flagler in a new set of workouts, to be crowned the winners.
