Short interview with qualifiers’ winner, Kristóf Horváth

Kristóf Horváth finished the qualifiers in top of the leaderboard of the RX Men division, in a very competitive roster consist of many regional athletes. He is 24 years old, he studied Sports Science and he works as a coach at CrossFit Bbros in Budapest, Hungary. At the moment, he devotes most of his time in training and he keeps his motivation flying everyday by trying to beat his little sister, Laura Horvath, the 2nd Fittest Woman on Earth!

With 5 regional athletes in the Leaderboard, did you expect to win the Qualifiers of the Cyprus Throwdown?
Well it’s not that of the level of competition that I was afraid of, but rather that I historically always finished in the back half of online qualifiers. I was just hoping to finish in the top 10 this time.


Which Qualifier workout did you enjoy the most and why?
I think the first one, rowing is my jam and the rest was fun too. It was a very well put together workout, at least for me.


The last 4 years, you have been crowned 3 times as the Fittest Man on Hungary, is that enough for you? What are your goals for the 2019 season?
The short answer is no. But of course there are many puzzles to this game and the most important for me is to stay injury free and consistent with my training. If those two align, I know when it is time I can bring the heat!


Do you do your own programming or do you get one from your coach?
I have been doing other coaches programming for many years, I have learnt a great deal from all, but right now I do what I feel is the right thing for me!


Do you train on your own or do you have a training partner?
I do have training partners on the daily. We throw down as often as we can. I truly can thank most of my success to them. I think it’s also important to crack a good joke every once in a while and to have fun! They are great!


How much time do you spend training?
I am having 2-3 sessions every day, with quite high volume at the moment.


How do you get motivated and what makes you more competitive?
Well I grew up playing sports with my sister… trying to beat her every day keeps the fire stoked!
