The first of its kind, the Fittest Dynamic Duo Challenge is designed for 2-person teams (2 males per team or 2 females per team) to compete in 2 divisions (RX Division and Scaled Division). Teams battle in a battery of division-prescribed fitness challenges (workouts) that include activities such as running, jumping, throwing, Olympic weightlifting, barbell lifts (deadlift, push press, squats), and gymnastics (pull-ups, pushups, ring dips).
“Competitive athletics is an amazing way to make fitness fun and exciting. And the charitable cause being supported by this event makes it all the more special to us,” says Quest Founder and President Tom Bilyeu. “Our recent sponsorship of athletes at the CrossFit Games only solidified our belief in, and deep admiration for, the community of athletes that compete in this style of event.”
A segment of the Dynamic Duo Challenge, the Charity Fireman Challenge is a contest open to all participants, consisting of activities like the rope carry, wall climb, dummy drag, sprints and more. WOD Talk will host a live podcast, and 100% of donations benefit www.Hotshots19.com, assisting fallen firefighters. Quest Nutrition will be on hand to supply competitors with healthy sustenance and motivational support. Quest will also present contest winners with portions of the total $10,000 in cash and prizes.
“Quest wants everyone to ‘Pursue Greatness,’ and we have a great passion for those involved in civil service,” says Bruce Cardenas, EVP and Athlete Relations Director. “We jump at opportunities to help a good cause, encourage hardworking athletes, and show how consuming our fitness-fueling foods meets the first two goals.”
“Legendary Competitor is pumped to partner with Quest— a dynamic duo combing forces to foster camaraderie in competitive fitness,” adds LC Owner Aimee Anderson.
