MIAMI, July 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Leading performance brand, TYR Sport, was announced today as the first-ever title sponsor of the internationally renowned Wodapalooza Fitness Festival (“WZA”). The four-day CrossFit-inspired festival and competition takes place every January Miami, Florida.

Founded by an Olympic team captain and technical apparel designer, TYR’s roots are planted in the proving grounds of athletic performance and technical know-how. Since their foundation three decades ago, they have become among the most recognizable global swimming and triathlon brands, and they strive to achieve their mission of doing everything possible through sport.

Bringing our technical products in apparel, footwear, eyewear and swimming to competitors and event spectators speaks directly to our goal of improving athlete performance with product technology.” he said Matt DiLorenzoexecutive director of TYR Sport.
This headline partnership will be the first of its kind for Wodapalooza, where the event will share another brand under its name. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with a company that not only shares our values, which strives to elevate the overall experience, but also strives to improve fitness. This partnership signifies a valuable commitment to our event and the entire community, and we can’t wait to show what this collaboration means to the TYR Wodapalooza Fitness Festival,” he said Aaron AndersonVP of Business Development at Loud And Live.
Founded in 2012, Wodapalooza has seen tremendous and progressive growth since its inception. What started as a small-scale event 11 years ago has since evolved into a destination and annual culmination for fitness fanatics of all types and abilities. In 2022, the event was a record with over 40,000 participants, including over 2,000 competitors from 50 countries. This historic partnership between TYR and the WZA symbolizes both brands’ intent to elevate the opportunity for athletes to compete and the community to connect.
The 2023 TYR Wodapalooza Fitness Festival will once again be held at Bayfront Park at Downtown Miami and will feature four days of competition as the focal point of the weekend-long festival.
