The CrossFit Tour, Kiwi Style


by Press Release

At the January CrossFit Tour stop in New Zealand, not only did attendees leap off a bridge while tethered to a glorified rubber band, but they also partook in white-water rafting, workouts and a bit of "post-workout refreshment."

On the first night, Dave Castro, CrossFit Director of Training and Director of the CrossFit Games, had a surprise for top athletes in attendance: "This morning they did a nice little 10-minute workout. Now they're gonna do a little strength component."

Among the athletes were Games competitors Ruth Anderson Horrell, a Kiwi; American Jason Khalipa; and Aussies Chad Mackay and Kara Webb.

The workout was a classic: CrossFit Total.

On Day 2, the CrossFit Tour moved to an outdoor venue that provided a festival-like atmosphere complete with live band, barbecue, beer garden and, of course, CrossFit workouts. That was followed by a pub crawl at various spots, including an ice bar.

The next day featured another workout, as well as a talk from CrossFit Founder and CEO Greg Glassman.
