Who organizes WODCELONA?

Two years ago, Marc Gil, founder of Limited Edition Athletes and Wodapalooza champion in 2017, proposed a project to a group of friends: he wanted to organize an international Crossfit competition in the city of Barcelona.

But he wasn’t talking about just any competition. He was talking about a professional, fun and inclusive event because it would have able-bodied categories and adaptive categories. Something never seen in Europe!

And since we are athletes and challenges motivate us a lot, we decided to join him in this exciting adventure. This is how WODCELONA Fitness & Community Festival started.

LEA & WODCELONA

WODCELONA is one of the projects created by Limited Edition Athletes

Limited Edition Athletes (LEA) is a non-profit organization that works to promote functional fitness adapted to people with disabilities and vulnerable groups.

Sport is considered non-inclusive if it is not adapted to the needs of all type of people. But, fro instance, CrossFit is a discipline that allows the adaptation of exercises whatever the condition of the person who practices it. That’s why LEA uses Crossfit as a mecanism to avoid exclusion.

Since 2016, its objectives are:

1

Raise awareness in society and in the sport field so that all together create a more inclusive world without any type of barriers.

2

Help people in their development so that they reach their maximum degree of physical, emotional and social well-being

3

Spread their way of working so that it can be replicated in Crossfit and in other disciplines.
