With WOW2, there will be more opportunities to work out on the ship, which is hard to imagine, but yes there will be! We will have 8+ dedicated workout areas that will be running a “workout of the day” at their location all day. There will be open gym times and a few special workout events as well as some “flash” workouts that will go down. We will have sandbag workouts, dumbbells, kettlebells, bodyweight, technique classes, pull up rig classes, yoga, bootcamp and introducing spin classes this year!
After the feedback from 2019 cruise, 2020 WOD on the Waves is bringing even more coaches and more seminars! Chris Hinshaw will be back by popular demand and will be joined by two of the top coaches in the world. Power Monkey Fitness owners Chad Vaughn (US Olympic weightlifter) and Dave Durante (US Olympic gymnast) will be collaborating with Hinshaw to bring you the most robust information and seminars available on and off land. We are excited to have them, among many others to be announced coming on board with us this year. Stay tuned for more announcements.
Pre-Party: MIAMI, FLORIDA
Our VIP pre-party on Miami Beach is April 15, 2020, and we will be departing from Miami on the Celebrity Infinity on April 16, 2020. Be sure to come a day early to check out all of the amazing things Miami has to offer!
Day 1: MIAMI, FLORIDA
Does boarding the ship and finding your stateroom count as a workout? Maybe! The ship sets sail at 6:00 pm on Thursday, April 16th. More details regarding exact boarding times will be sent to guests with confirmed reservations closer to sailing. Onward!
Day 2: NASSAU, BAHAMAS
Our first stop will be Nassau, and like last year, we will be working out with our friends at Happy Hour Crossfit to get our barbell sessions in for the trip! In addition to the HHCF workouts, we will be offering a number of vacation excursions on the island ranging from fishing and snorkeling trips to relaxing on the spectacular grounds of Atlantis.
Looking for something more competitive? Join our WOW Amazing Race Scavenger Hunt on the Island, where those who complete the gauntlet of tourist sites, mini-workouts, and bar crawl will compete for fun and amazing prizes, including a free room on the 2021 WOD on the Waves!!!!
But beware – play stupid games….win stupid prizes!!!
Day 3: COCOCAY
Be prepared!!! For those who joined us last year, the weather and waves prevented us from visiting CocoCay, but this year, a deepwater dock recently completed on the island will guarantee our stop there! Oh, and they spent over $250 million dollars to create the most amazing vacation oasis / private island in the Caribbean!!! It is truly going to be the highlight for everyone of every age.
Day 4: DAY AT SEA
You’ll need to save your energy for this day! We will start early with an array of workouts and continue throughout the day with various classes, experiences and poolside fun!
Day 5: RETURN TO MIAMI, FL
Sadly, the cruise has to end when the ship pulls into port at 7:00 am. But follow WOD on the WAVES on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to see photos and video from the cruise!
