International Functional Fitness Federation Established

USA Functional Fitness
This morning the International Functional Fitness Federation recognized USA Functional Fitness and also announced both the first ever USA Functional Fitness National Championships and the first ever International Functional Fitness World Championships. 

There's a lot to unpack there. First off, the International Functional Fitness Federation, aka the IF3, was formed to standardize competitive exercise with the ultimate goal of getting functional fitness into the Olympics. Ideally, it will function the way the International Weightlifting Federation functions for weightlifting. Next up we have USA Functional Fitness, the national governing body for the sport in the United States. 

In terms of events, there are two announced here: the USA Functional Fitness National Championships and the World Championships. The US Nationals are scheduled for September 8-10 to take place at the US Olympic Training Center, where the first US National Functional Fitness Team of 12 men and 12 women will be selected. The World Championships will take place in California in October. 

It's unclear who else will be represented at the World Championships if the only current national governing body is in the United States, but we'll get more details and update you as we find more. Below is the full press release.
