On the 18th of November 2017 Curox celebrated its world premiere in Hamburg. For the first time ever they implemented such a sweating program in Hamburg. This successful sport competition took place in the convention halls of Hamburg with roundabout 750 participants.
The whole event was initiated by Moritz Fürste, an Olympia champion in field-hockey as well as the founder of the Cyclassics Christian Toetzke. Radio moderator Lasse Stübinger from Energy Hamburg moderated the sport event together with Moritz Fürste.
Curox consists of a running battle, in which you have to complete 8 times 1000m of running and between the running slots you have to complete a fitness station. The single workout / fitness stations are located in the middle of the room; the running track edges the workout stages.
Each heat consists of 30 athletes, who are starting at the same time. To bypass the profusion they put a 10 min break between each heat. The main point is the time; therefore they measure the time you need to complete the full parkour.
All participants, Roxstars, can report about an unforgettable sport day and collective aching.
Our Carl Technik Team was also on the ground and supported this tough event with our optimal technique solutions. Among other things, we put up many big screens in the convention hall. Moreover we fixed some Go Pros on the training equipment to record the workout of the athletes and to watch them up close. In addition to that our camera team accompanied the sport competition and filmed the interviews.
The event was a huge success and brought the athletes to their limits. Many fitness studios (gyms) will offer free Curox – classes as a preparation for the next event.
We are grateful for the successful collaboration and are waiting for the next Curox event with full excitement. Hamburg is the fitness capital for a reason.
