The team embodies the core principles of integrity, toughness, ferocity and strength. Featuring both male and female functional fitness athletes, the DC Brawlers seeks to inspire the fight within.
The Brawlers’ roster boasts some of the top names in the sport as well as emerging athletes ready to make their mark. Three athletes, Christy Adkins, Jerry Hill and Alec Smith, hail from the Mid-Atlantic States and will surely be hometown favorites as the team and league start its inaugural season this month.
