'Red hot competition' in Super Series opener

CROSSFIT: Dan Withers is excited for round two of the VidaFit Super Series after the weekend opener delivered some "red hot competition”.

Fifty men's and women's pairs from across Central Queensland hit the floor in six divisions, taking on a series of challenging workouts.

Athletes in the three-round series are competing for a share of more than $16,000 in cash and prizes.

Withers, the director of VidaFit Rockhampton, said it was a very tight contest.

"It was a brilliant day and a really broad test of all athletes' fitness,” he said.

"In a couple of the divisions it came down to the last workout to decide who stood on the podium.

"At day's end, the athletes who were most well rounded in all components of fitness were successful.”
