Calisthenics competitions are a rising trend in the fitness industry, with contests complete with judges and weight classes. In 2018, a new league will emerge called the Urban Fitness League (UFL), which will comprise the world’s top calisthenics competitors. On July 4th, the UFL will host a special “UFL World Cup Event” at the Ford Amphitheatre in Coney Island, NY where US extreme calisthenics athletes will battle international athletes to see who is the best on the bar. This first of its kind event will be hosted by fitness personalities Mario Lopez and Tyson Beckford, and feature music from American rapper Jim Jones and hip-hop sensation DJ Envy.
If you’re scrambling for a spectator event on July 4th, this outdoor fitness event is sure to be an energy-packed, unpredictable night of sports, style, and music.
