Train with Champions: A Week with Chyna Cho

Chyna, an eight-time CrossFit Games veteran, former affiliate owner, and collegiate swimmer, boasts an impressive athletic history. She achieved 6th place individually in 2015, topped the podium at the 2015 Invitational, and was a key member of the 2019 Mayhem Freedom team that took 1st place. Chyna also contributed to the demo team in 2021 and secured 3rd place in the masters category in 2022. We're thrilled to have Chyna join our sessions and sharing her expertise at our retreat.

Chyna has competed alongside Lauren for many years. Initially competing in the same region and later competing against each other both individually and latest on team in 2019 where they both shared the podium. Their friendship and joint expertise make them an exciting addition to our retreat.

Currently residing in Hawaii with her husband, Freddy—who will also be joining us—Chyna and Freddy are not only incredible athletes but also knowledgeable, engaging, and fun to be around.

Join us for a week of fitness and fun in beautiful Denmark, and learn from these seasoned Games veterans.

What Defines Denmark?

Denmark, tucked away in the northern part of Europe, is a small yet influential country with fewer than 6 million people, that consistently makes a significant impact on the global stage.

Perhaps not the most important, but worth mentioning first, is their pastries – expect to find exceptional bakeries at every corner. And for the enthusiasts, yes, we have included a pastry cooking class in our itinerary!

Denmark is also at the forefront of sustainable living and renewable energy, known for its love of recycling and commitment to green initiatives. Despite its modest size, the country's dedication to social welfare and quality of life often ranks it among the happiest nations globally.

And Let's not forget, this is the land where the legendary Vikings originated. There's certainly a lot to explore and discover in Denmark!

City Exploration & Village Relaxation

Enjoy a comfortable and convenient stay during our retreat, starting with 4 nights at Hotel Bryggen Guldsmeden in Copenhagen. This charming hotel exemplifies Scandinavian living with its cozy rooms and welcoming atmosphere. Perfectly located in the heart of the city, you'll be within easy walking distance to a variety of restaurants, shops, parks, and bars.

Our journey then takes us across the impressive ‘Storebæltsbroen’, a bridge that connects two of Denmark’s major islands and was once the world's largest. In Odense, we’ll settle into Hotel Odeon, which is also centrally located, providing convenient access to the town's local dining, shopping, and nightlife options.

We typically do a mix of HIIT workouts and strength training.

We'll be exercising in several locations, including visits to three different CrossFit gyms and two outdoor sessions. At the CrossFit gyms, we'll have access to a range of equipment like barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, and pull-up racks. For our outdoor workouts, we'll embrace a more basic approach, focusing primarily on bodyweight movements.

What all the sessions have in common is their adaptability to suit your fitness level. So, there's no need to feel intimidated or discouraged by the workouts. It is all about having a great time, stay healthy, and most importantly, have fun.

YES! There will be modifications for all fitness levels, and participation in any activity is entirely up to you.

We've found that 20 participants is the ideal number for creating a personalized and fun experience. On certain retreats we might go slightly over and others we will try to stay under. Each retreat is supported by at least 2 coaches or staff members, and we often include additional team members as necessary to ensure everyone receives the attention and guidance they need.
