    The FDIC 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

    A way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others.

    Fire Fighter Throwdown

    Confirmed for FDIC Int'l 2017

    Being an invitational event, ONLY 100 ATHLETES WILL BE CHOSEN to compete. Four diverse, torturous WODs, have been created to be in keeping with Functional Fitness, but also, mirror the physical activity a firefighter experiences on a daily basis. The Firefighter Throwdown is NOT for the uninitiated, the weak or soft. This is guts and glory and you need to be in top physical shape to be considered as a competitor.
