HYROX was created to be the Fitness Race for everybody. That being said, it is still a fitness race which requires endurance training and strength preparation.
Remember – HYROX consists of 8 x 1 km runs and 8 functional workout stations!
Put simply, our sport is the ultimate challenge for your body, where natural skill movements are maximally tested. Together with Mintra Tilly – the very woman who designed the race format of HYROX – we are here to provide you tips & tricks to help you prepare.
50% IS RUNNING
Some love it, whilst others would rather not think about it! A HYROX race consists of 8 kilometres of running, with each kilometre split up by a functional workout station.
Therefore, it is paramount to incorporate running into your training and build up your aerobic capacity, as the average time our athletes spend on the race course is 90 minutes. It is also important to experience running after working the legs and arms, so simulate that Race Experience at home or in the gym. Ever wondered how you run after pushing a 125 kg sled for 50 meters? Or after your heart rate spikes during 80 m of Burpee Broad Jumps. So mix up your training and you will start to enjoy your running more and more.
