WHAT IS FITVILLE CHAMPIONSHIP

Three days, multiple workouts, against a slew of athletes and teams from around the Caribbean will unfold on Friday through Sunday Starting SEPT 27TH.

FITVILLE is a Team Competition for the Caribbean inviting athletes from around the globe, comprised of two athletes of the same gender. 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.

Venue and location

History

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.

 

2014

1st edition

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!

 

2015-2016

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.

 

2017

2nd edition

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.

 

 

 

3rd edition

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

What could you possibly contribute?? Where do we begin?

Judge – Love counting reps and wearing your best judgey face when folks work out? Perfect! Check “Judge” as your first preference in your application.

Medical – Are you a nurse, doctor, first responder, sport practitioner, etc.? We think you’d look great in that red Medical shirt.

Power Crew – If you operate heavy machinery, work with power tools and rock a hard hat on the reg, we salute your skills and most definitely want to talk to you! This crew handles set-up and take-down of the competition equipment and arena floor. Heavy lifting and moving large equipment comes with the gig.

Crew – What doesn’t the Crew do? This team is versatility bottled, handling a wide array of tasks to support our Athletes, spectators and fellow crew members. Behind the scenes, right next to the action… Everywhere you look, there’s a Crew shirt.

Weekday Warrior – Looking to help but unable to commit to the weekend shift? We need you during the week to prep for the big event! As a Weekday Warrior, you’re responsible for set-up and take-down of competition equipment and the arena floor. Shifts are available pre- mid- and post-event. Remember to lift with your knees and rock your hard hat, there’s some heavy lifting involved.

Find additional details on each department below. This list only scratches the surface of the value our volunteers add, from running Athlete Check-In to ensuring their fellow volunteers get fed to running down stories for our Media Team, Bar Manager, Area managers and everything in between! Each volunteer selected will receive official Fitville volunteer shorts, snacks, free food and drinks during their shifts (lunch provided for full shifts), and an amazing firsthand experience behind the scenes at one of the largest fitness competitions in the Caribbean.
