Road to ELFIT Crossfit® Championship starts here!

Welcome to the 8th and most exciting season of ELFIT.


Evolving from a local fitness competition, among thousands of competitions that happen all over the world, ELFIT has become a CrossFit Sanctional event where the top male, female, and team will receive invitations to compete directly at the 2020 CrossFit® Games in Madison, Wisconsin.
Year after year ELFIT strives to bring the Fitness/CrossFit community together to celebrate health, good habits and sport; all while enjoying being in one of the most historically rich and cultural countries: Egypt.
Out of almost 900 athletes 600 got to the ELFIT Finals in 2018. It was held in Hurghada, Egypt where there were some wonderful scenery and views which made it quite worth the trip.

We hope you’ve started preparing for our next season! Since we have been announced as a CrossFit® Games Sanctioned event we have been working tirelessly to bring you an event to exceed all your expectations!

ELFIT Crossfit Championship finals is scheduled to take place on the weekend of 8-11 April 2020 in Egypt, the exact location will be released soon.
Registration for all divisions will open December 15th and the Online Qualifiers will start mid January.

ELFIT as a CrossFit® sanctioned event.

What does that mean?

With the changes of the CrossFit® Games (the world’s premier test to find the Fittest on Earth™), Sanctioned events will be replacing CrossFit regional events.

As of May 2019, ELFIT was officially announced as one of CrossFit® sanctioned events, where the 1st place Female, Male & Mixed Team (MM+FF) will compete alongside the fittest in the world at the 2020 CrossFit® Games in Madison, Wisconsin.

So if you are looking to get a qualifying spot to the Games here is your chance to do that right here in Egypt.
