Developed by the Kapa-Kīngi triplets, the first-ever Māori language crossfit-style functional fitness competition is taking place this month, The Spinoff reveals, with the aim of elevating Māori health and language simultaneously. The date has been set for June 18 at CrossFit Waitākere in Tāmaki Makaurau. Mātātoa is a crossfit-style functional fitness competition founded by brothers Heemi, Tipene and Eru Kapa-Kīngi. “We want to see more Māori for the health benefits so we can alleviate some of the negative stats around hauora within our iwi,” says Eru.
