Airofin Hyrox Workout

Airofin Hyrox Workout

We have recently become obsessed with HYROX, but what is it and why is it so addictive? 

Hyrox is essentially a fitness race for everybody and anybody, set up in 2017 by Christian Toetzke and Moritz Fürste.

In the 1990s Toetzke developed several World Triathlon Series and Cyclassics before they were sold to The Ironman Group. Then in 2017 – along with German two-time Olympic gold medal hockey player Moritz Fürste, they created HYROX, the global fitness race that combines functional exercise with endurance.

We have seen the evolution of races from tough Mudder, sprint triathlons, and more recently the CrossFit Games, however HYROX is creating a new category of mass participation in fitness racing. It’s a mix of running and workouts that people are already doing in the gym. 

The Workouts consists of:

  • Step 1 | One Kilometer Run
  • Step 2 | One Functional Workout
  • Step 3 | Repeat steps 1 and 2 – 8 times.

HYROX eschews the more technical, hard-to-learn lifts like the snatch and clean & jerk which CrossFit seem to put particular focus on. The other big difference with HYROX is that everyone knows exactly how the event is designed. It’s the marathon of fitness. People know what is coming so they can prepare appropriately. 

There are various divisions which means you can compete alone, with a partner or with a team. 

Here are the HYROX divisions:

  • Singles
  • Doubles
  • HYROX Men
  • HYROX Women
  • HYROX Pro Men
  • HYROX Pro Women
