WCC FITNESS FESTIVAL
WCC FITNESS FESTIVAL
WOD CON CORAZÓN 2017 will be a celebration of community, life and future, using fitness as the common bond that binds. As part of our innovative strategy we will move to a world-class venue at the Terminal Port of San Souci. In addition we will have areas created for families that will include a Kids Fun Zone, Food Truck Village and seminars with local and international special guests of the global fitness community.
Since inception we will once again have the support of CrossFit professional athletes: Guido Trinidad and Noah Ohlsen, ambassadors of WOD CON CORAZÓN since 2013. In years past other athletes that we are grateful for their support have included: Spencer Hendel, Emmanuel Maldonado, Natalie Newhart and Shawn Ramirez who all share our same passion to help build a better community for the children of the Dominican Republic, by supporting the foundation with their high-profile athleticism and their hearts.
The event will have different categories seeking the participation of athletes from all levels of performance. We will also be capturing via Facebook Live and Instagram Live key portions of the two day event.
Before moving to the Dominican Republic, living in Miami, Fl Crossfit had already positively impacted my life. The thought was to create an event that would help accelerate the growth of this sport in the local Dominican community for the benefit of many, tying into a great cause. Along with the support of my great friend and founder of CrossFit Lounge, Antonio “Capa”, we both shared this same passion and decided to share it with the rest of the country. Personally, this great community, has helped me with some of the most difficult challenges of my life, among which I can mention the loss of both of my parents at a very young age.
A major motivating factor was having the privilege to intimately witnessed what my great friend Guido Trinidad achieved with this great sport, beginning his dream out of the trunk of his Jeep and seeing the evolution of his efforts and passion yield the building of a supportive local Miami community that is PEAK360 Crossfit to the International world stage that is WODAPALOOZA, with representatives from 33 countries. Seeing what can result when individuals come together for the greater good of the collective, sparked the intention to create this not for profit event and make all that support part of the cause that is helping hundreds less fortunate improve their quality of life thru the most impactful method, education. There is no limit to the impact we can generate as a society when we come together, JFK said it best, “A rising tide lift all boats”
