Proudly hosted by CrossFit Dungeon, since 2013, in the beautiful city of Cairns, Far North Queensland; we present TORTURE IN THE TROPICS, the most sought after Functional Fitness competition in the region.

CrossFit is the ‘sport of fitness’. Unlike other sporting disciplines, it requires the combination of many varying areas of physical and mental performance in optimizing physical competence across all fitness domains. This style of competition includes a wide variety of physical challenges for athletes such as gymnastics, weightlifting, cardiovascular endurance and powerlifting to name a few. It is an exciting sport and competition in which to participate, spectate and sponsor!

2013 was the inaugural year of Torture in the Tropics. The event was an overwhelming success! 120 athletes from around the state came together to form 30 teams for a fun filled, precisely run event over one day, as an in-house competition.

Since then the annual competition has grown and become TitT Teams and TitT Twins.

TitT Teams (June) is a two day event, previously held at the Fred Moule Pavillion, to cater for the increase in demand. Today it is recognised as the biggest CrossFit competition north of Brisbane, capped at 80 teams (320 athletes) battling it out to be named the fittest in the Tropics.

TitT Twins (November)  is a single day event, for the athletes, held at CrossFit Dungeon. Since 2018, due to the increase in demand, this event was extended to run over two days. RX & MX athletes competing on one day and SX athletes competing on the next.

Athletes combined with their entourage of family, friends and coaches, plus the general public passing through as spectators and supporters of Torture in the Tropics, bring a wide variety of people into this event over the course of the weekend.

Torture in the Tropics is an exceptional opportunity for sponsors to expose their business to the CrossFit community in Cairns and far beyond. It has been well established over the previous five years and is an impressive, professionally run event, that is fully insured and spectacular to watch.

We provide an event that accommodates to a wide variety of athletic abilities.

TitT Teams: Consist of 4 individuals: 2 Males and 2 Females*
                    *we will accept same sex teams, however their score will be invalid.
