THE excitement is building as Reebok CrossFit 673 prepares to host one of the region’s most prominent CrossFit competitions.
As the Beast of The South East v2 (BOSE) is set to happen in the next couple of days, volunteers have been working around the clock to ensure a smooth and succesful event.
Michael Mogard, owner and head coach of Reebok CrossFit 673, first organised the competition in 2012 as an avenue to bring together the fitness community from around the region.
Since then, it has grown strength to strength to become one of the most anticipated CrossFit events in Southeast Asia.
BOSE will officially kick off tomorrow at Pusat Belia with a Strength and Conditioning seminar sponsored by KFC.
The workshop will be hosted by three of Asia’s top CrossFit lifters – Michael Mogard of Reebok CrossFit 673, Taylor Rank of CrossFit Utmost (UAE) and John Briton from CrossFit Metalize (UAE).
They will give an in-depth breakdown on the technique for the Clean and Jerk and Snatch.
Athletes will then compete in four individually scored events on Saturday to test their overall fitness.
The final event is sponsored by Hua Ho Department Store.
Athletes from around the region are set to arrive in the next few days, representing over 10 CrossFit affiliates and gyms from Brunei Darussalam, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore and Dubai.
