TRIBAL CLASH PUTS THE FUN IN FUNCTIONAL FITNESS
The competition is designed to discover the most capable teams on planet earth. Or in other words, the group of people who have the greatest ability to get stuff done regardless of the type of task, its duration or complexity. The events could involve ANYTHING but typically include: lifting, shifting (carrying, dragging, pulling), locomoting (running, swimming,) or climbing. The team that can do most work in the shortest time will score the highest. But more importantly, due to the way we program all teams will have a great time regardless of how they score.
TRIBAL CLASH IS THE ULTIMATE TEST OF TEAM WORK
Tribal clash events are specifically designed to reward teamwork above all else. Teams are always comprised of six athletes (three men and three women). Individual strengths will not necessarily bring a team up but individual weaknesses will certainly bring a team down. A collection of strong individuals does not necessarily make for a strong team either. If communication, camaraderie or leadership is lacking then the team will not do well regardless of individual capabilities. The best teams are the ones who work together as one well oiled machine and remember to have a good time while they do it.
TRIBAL CLASH IS FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE
Tribal Clash is for anyone who is passionate about fitness and is proud of the fitness family to which they belong. The competition is highly inclusive and suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It attracts both top level athletes such as CrossFit Games world Champion Samantha Briggs as well as those just starting out on their fitness journey’s. All athletes will find that they can contribute to the team’s performance in a way that is appropriate to their level. Stronger more experienced teams will be severely tested, weaker less experienced teams will find the events challenging but achievable. Experience counts for a lot at Tribal Clash and older members can contribute greatly to a team, often making exceptional leaders.
TRIBAL CLASH REQUIRES BRAIN AS WELL AS BRAUN
Teams compete in a six grueling events across the course of an action packed weekend before the top teams progress to a nail-biting race-to-the-finish final. The events are highly tactical. Strategy and communication are key to good performance. Teams that are fit and strong will survive. Teams that are fit, strong AND smart will thrive.
TRIBAL CLASH IS CONSTANTLY INNOVATING AND EVOLVING
Innovation is an important part of the Tribal Clash magic. New ideas and apparatus are constantly being developed in-house to keep the athletes on their toes. Details of the events are kept secret until the last minute, and are as varied as possible, meaning teams have to prepare for the unknown, expect the unexpected, think on their feet, and adapt on the fly.
