This will be the 4th edition of the FITVILLE Championship. In 2018 we set a standard for Caribbean fitness competition this year is promising to be even betterd for what an athlete, spectator, sponsor and volunteer can come to expect from a fitness competition.
Year One saw the Elite teams composed of Men and Women combined into one division because the sport was new to the community and there weren’t enough athletes to fill out a proper bracket. Certainly unconventional, but FITVILLE made it work!
We focused more on individual fitness competitions and organizing other sporting events around the island such as weightlifting comp and our early in-house duo battles in December.
This year we plan to attract the first athletes not residing in the Sunshine Island but attracting more athlete from around the Caribbean, making it a truly International competition. The Aruba setting and community will make it a one-of-a-kind experience”. The sun will go down, the athletes will be hot and the party atmosphere of FITVILLE will start. The number of sponsor partners, food services and entertainers will give FITVILLE its backbone. The idea is not only to be a showcase of athletic feats alone, but to make it a true Fitness Festival! Although, many things are pointing in the right direction FITVILLE will still need to prove itself and for sure will have some growing up to do. We are already practicing with smaller events to dial in on the Scheduling and organization; the WODS need to be consistent and not start late, taking great care of the athlete’s and there warm up area’s; all issues we are experiencing with our smaller events will be made a top priority and will become examples for all other competitions to emulate.
In 2017 Aruba Crossfit Community saw for the first time a true Functional Fitness Competition on the Island where everybody could come together a test their fitness against each other. It mas a magical event weekend where we saw lots of happy faces and we just want to replicate that feeling in 2018 while making it a much better experience! 2017 was an awesome year but this year promises to be even better. We are full steam in preparation and organization for the 2018 competition. We are looking forward to the FITVILLE 2018 season and hope you are as well!
Fitness Event background
It could be said that the highlight of this prestigious team competition will be its collection of the best athletes the Caribbean has to offer, but it wouldn’t be FITVILLE without the Caribbean carnival atmosphere! While the fittest athlete’s the Caribbean has to offer will be giving everything they have for pride and prizes provided by top-notch sponsors; there will be an equal dose of Seminars, Clinics, Demonstrations, Products exposure, Food, Music and Dancing hereby creating a complete spectator experience for the whole family and visitors.
FITVILLE gives teams of athletes of all skill levels the opportunity to test themselves in the most unique setting imaginable for a Fitness Competition: From the RX division, intermediate division to the Scaled and HERO Division, FITVILLE strives to challenge every Team beyond what they previously thought possible. Even spectators will get a chance to try their skills at various sponsor booths!
FITVILLE is all about the fitness community. In an effort to educate and grow that community, there will be presentations on the finer points of the most functional fitness programming in the world. Whether it’s an Olympic lifting, gymnastics seminar to a Zumba or a yoga demonstration, there will be something for everyone.
While there is nothing better to do around in the Caribbean, We will be throwing the quintessential ARUBIAN party in September. Come join the celebration!
We hope you find it useful. Mr. William Erasmus, Event Director, FITVILLE
