What Do I Need for My First HYROX?

So first, what is a HYROX? HYROX is often compared to CrossFit, it is a competitive indoor functional fitness event. Many CrossFitters do take part in HYROX events, but the two sports are different. CrossFit competitions typically consist of several different workouts on the same day with competing athletes often not knowing what the workouts will be until shortly beforehand. HYROX is a standardised event whereby the workout does not change, i.e. it’s the same amount of running, the same exercises in the same order every time. This generally makes a HYROX event easier to train for, as well as making it easier to understand the progress you have made (improvements in your finishing time are a good indicator). Running generally does not feature too heavily in CrossFit but in a HYROX event you cover over 8km of running, and a HYROX race is longer than most CrossFit workouts (average finisher time being 1.5hr).

HYROX competition is made up of a 1km run followed by 1 functional fitness workout, repeated 8 times. The 8 functional workout stations are: SkiErg, Sled Push, Sled Pull, Burpee Broad Jumps, Rowing, Famers Carry, Sandbag Lunges and Wall Balls.

Exercises in HYROX are generally less technical and complex than are sometimes featured in CrossFit, making them safer and simpler to perform and HYROX as a sport more accessible to a wider range of fitness abilities. There are no time limits and no qualification required. If you are 16 years of age or older you can compete in HYROX. There is open, pro, doubles, and relay divisions.
