REACH FOR THE RINGS tells the story of the sport of Functional Fitness aspiring to reach the Olympic Games

May 24th, 2021 – A new documentary film portrays the 2019 World Championships of the International Function Federation—a not for-profit, athlete-driven organization endeavoring to bring the sport of Functional Fitness to the Olympic Games—available now for pre-orders on iTunes & Apple TV.

After prevailing at their own National Championships, the top Functional Fitness athletes from around the world converge on Malmo, Sweden to compete in the 2019 iF3 World Championships.

Over three days, these athletes face 6 harrowing “tests” in order to crown the World Champions in the Women’s, Men’s, and Teams divisions. Each of the 6 tests challenges a different aspect of fitness: Endurance, Strength, Bodyweight, Skill, Mixed, and Power.

The USA Functional Fitness Team are here for redemption after dominating at home in 2017 and facing disappointment in London in 2018. Coach Justin Cotler plans to stage a comeback and sweep the podium in 2019.

Canada’s Alex Parker is here on a personal quest to defeat her “frenemy” and rival, American Jordan Adcock, who lives in the same town, trains at the same gym, and shares the same coach. They’re neck and neck in every test.

The sport of Functional Fitness wants to be an Olympic sport. These 46  National Federations around the globe have banded together in order to “Reach For The Rings” and achieve their Olympic dream.

This is the first film from the International Functional Fitness Federation, produced by Functional Fitness Films, and distributed by Gravitas Ventures.

Reach For The Rings is available now throughout the USA & Canada!  You can watch the trailer: and order using the following links:
