Swiss Throwdown “Team Edition”

SWISS THROWDOWN 2022 – The largest live competition for Functional Fitness in Switzerland

360 athletes, 100 coaches and over 1’000 spectators during the whole weekend. On April 23 and 24, 2022, the final of the SWISS THROWDOWN “Team Edition” will take place in Lucerne – the largest live competition for functional fitness in Switzerland.

This year’s edition will be an unprecedented experience in the history of the Swiss CrossFit scene for athletes and spectators alike. The goal of the event is to provide the greatest possible benefit to all. That’s why cross equip will provide a fully equipped, 70 square meter open training area at the venue. It will be the very first time nationwide that “Goliath”, the most massive Swiss made Competition Rig will be used and there is a nice prize to be won in the “Goliath Hang Challenge”.


28 meters long, 5 meters high, 4.2 meters depth –
Goliath was designed and produced in Switzerland and requires 4.8 tons of steel, 500 linear meters of tubing and 650 bolts must be tightened for the complete structure.

“We wanted to create something that would make the heart beat faster and make
make the impossible possible. So the question was: how can we give the athletes more…? more opportunities, more adrenaline, more performance, and most importantly, how can we give back to our community what you give to us every day through your support? So we built it.” (Felix, CEO of cross equip)

It will be set up for the first time at the Swiss Throwdown on April 23-24, 2022, and be seen at other events in Switzerland this year. The premiere is going to be celebrated with a BOOM, so come too!


The training area can accommodate 6 people/slot. A slot lasts 30 minutes and spectators and athletes can register for a maximum of two consecutive slots. For a slot, the cross equip team will be available at the cross equip booth for registration. Slots are limited, so early morning registration is beneficial.

Refreshments will be provided by beverage partner Nutriathletic.

Jonas Müller will be providing exciting workouts. He will be offering workouts on the surface over the course of the two days, for which you can also sign up for slots. The JMT workouts will take place at the following times:


The fully equipped, 70 square meter, open OPEN GYM offers a training area for spectators and athletes, with the possibility to have one or more training sessions between competitions.
