Coach MeLo, Coach K Harpz, and Tina D. are headed to Miami this weekend to represent CFSBK at the 2016 Wodapalooza Fitness Festival. Team Steel Magnolias came together back in October, when they began the qualifying process of completing, recording, and submitting the results of 9 tough workouts. They ended up placing 112th out of 218 registered teams, earning themselves a spot in the Intermediate Division.
Five workouts have been announced so far, one of which includes a 50 meter swim. (MeLo says she plans to hold on to K Harpz's leg, but we know she'll do just fine, as long as she keeps a lookout for sharks.) This is Wodapalooza's 5th year, and the organizers expect 20,000 spectators and 1500 athletes representing 16 countries. Some of the elite athletes competing this year include Rich Froning, Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet, Matt Chan, Lucas Parker, Emily Bridgers, Graham Holmberg, Becca Voight, and Talayna Fortunato, among many others!
Want to follow the action? The event schedule is here, and be sure to keep an eye on the Wodapalooza Instagram account (@thewodapalooza). You can also watch it live on FloElite (subscription required). Let's wish them luck. Go get 'em, Steel Magnolias!
