Trap Door Athletics, [G] Wis Concepts, and CrossFit 215 will present the Second Annual Philadelphia Winter Warmer on Saturday, February 1st, 2014 from 10am - 6pm.

200 athletes will test the limits of their physical fitness in five performance events, while vying for the top male and female $1,000 cash prize.

The competition begins at 10am. Workouts include an Olympic lifting barbell complex, gymnastics movements such as handstand push-ups, skills like double unders (passing a jump rope under the feet twice with each jump) and pushing hundreds of pounds for maximum distance. The workouts test different areas of fitness, as well as provide exciting entertainment as spectators watch and cheer for their favorite athletes.  

The sold-out competition will be hosted in a 42,000 square foot facility at the Water Tower Square Shopping Center in Montgomeryville. Spectators coming to watch the excitement will dine on food provided by local food trucks, Bryn & Dane’s and Sum Pig. “Overall we just want our athletes to work hard and have fun in a safe, competitive arena,” says Cassie Haynes, competition director, owner of Trap Door Athletics and Sports Doc panelist.
