fl halloween blog header

Grab your mat, lace up your shoes and hit the training ground: the Gods of Darkness are coming for you this Halloween and it’s up to the Free Athletes of the world to defeat them #DarknessDefeated.

The Challenge

This Halloween the darkest of Gods, lurking deep in your Freeletics app, have challenged you to dare to bring light back to the world. From October 28th to November 3rd, it’s up to you to Defeat the Darkness.

To take part in the challenge, all you need is a public profile in the Freeletics app, the rest is simple:

  • Perform one of these four Freeletics workouts: Nyx, Hekate, Hades, or Erebos
  • Take a photo of yourself after your workout with a Halloween twist and the hashtag, #DarknessDefeated
  • Post the photo and your completed workout in the app

This isn’t a challenge you have to do alone. Across the globe, legions of Free Athlete warriors will be fighting by your side, so why not conquer the Gods of Darkness together by joining a Community group training in your city?

If you choose to take on the challenge, whether alone or with your fellow God-slayers, make sure to share a picture in the app with a Halloween twist. This could be a spooky costume, a haunted training spot or a scary filter. Let your imagination run wild.

Which workout to choose?

You can choose which of the following Gods you’d like to take on, or challenge them all if you’re feeling particularly brave.

First there is Nyx, the Goddess of the Night. Hiding in the depths of the underworld, she was born from chaos and instilled fear even in Zeus himself. Her ab-burning challenge is not for the faint-hearted.

For those Freeletics Coach users looking for an even greater challenge, look no further than Hekate. The goddess of all things mystical, only Clapping Pushups and Pistol Squats will break her spells.

Next, there’s Hades, the one true ruler of the underworld. Defeat his hell-hounds and make your escape through the underworld through Pullups, Burpees and Sprints.

Finally, the darkest of all the Gods. Erebos is the embodiment of darkness itself. If you choose to take on the God of the Dead, Pullups, Split Lunges, Burpees and Toes-to-Bar await you. Head into this battle if you dare.

When you’ve chosen your adversary, select it from the Workouts list, choose either 1x, 2x or 3x and get training. You can aim for the Star, but don’t worry if you can’t make it, you’ll still be in the competition. You can challenge multiple Gods, but each individual workout needs to meet all the criteria for entry into the competition.
