In a nutshell
ELFIT Beach Warriors is a team’s competition by the beach. It’s the ultimate test of team-work where a team of 4 (3 main + 1 sub) will play over 2 days in a fun back to basics theme competition on August 23rd- 24th, 2019 in one of the most beautiful places in the world: The North Coast, Egypt.
ELFIT Beach warriors is an event under the umbrella of ELFIT, the mother brand. The concept is not new. We got inspired by an European event that has had countless events throughout the years. The Back to Basics concept is super exciting for us as it’s kind of what ELFIT started as back in 2013, and we’re happy to be re-launching it but this time with a twist!
Back to basics
100kg snatch? Nah we are not interested in that here. ELFIT Beach Warriors competition. is pure fitness; There are no complex movements, using non-fancy mostly primitive equipment. Workouts don’t include any barbells, air bikes, kettlebells, rowers, or med balls…etc. It’s more of ropes, logs, sandbags & other things you’re most likely to find in nature. The beauty of the back to basics concept is that it suits all fitness levels & anyone can take part in. Teams should be ready for any physical as well as mental challenges.
The North Coast
Egypt is known for its good weather and its amazing beaches. North Coast “Sahel” is one of the top summer destinations for all Egyptians that a lot of non- Egyptians probably are not aware of. The North Coast aka “Sahel” is one of the top favored summer destinations for local citizens and expats due to its strategic location on the Mediterranean Sea.
It’s known for its cool summer climate, strikingly turquoise water and its soft sands.

You don’t have to be a weightlifter but you are required to carry, pull and throw some objects. No need to be a swimmer, but you just need enough skills to survive in the water.
