And you thought New York’s business world was competitive. This year, CrossFit Dumbo is hosting the 2013 NYC Fittest competition, in hopes of crowning the fittest man and woman in all five boroughs.

Here’s how it works: Ripped city residents will participate in four weeks of qualifying workouts, until the contest is narrowed down to 250 men and 250 women. The workouts can be completed at participating CrossFit gyms or by submitting YouTube videos. Tho top 500 will head to the finals on November 9 and 10, where one winner of each gender will emerge.

So what do you have to do to prove your superhuman strength and endurance? The workouts, unsurprisingly, will be “CrossFit-style,” so don’t expect to win with your Flywheel Torqboard score. —Lisa Elaine Held
