Loughborough to host the first edition of the National Fitness Games

The first ever edition of the National Fitness Games will take place at Loughborough University on Saturday 15 September – and it’s not too late to register your team.

Hosted by sports presenter Gabby Logan, the National Fitness Games has been formed to redefine the way fitness is classified. Covering the four pillars of fitness – strength, speed, power and endurance – the Games have been designed to present a true test of an individual’s athletic ability, as well as your ability to work as a team.

The inaugural event is the UK’s ultimate team fitness competition and poses an impressive £10,000 prize fund, as well as a chance to compete in Loughborough’s world class sporting facilities. An inclusive competition, the National Fitness Games boasts four categories: Elite, Open, Masters or Corporate; teams can be male/female only or mixed.

If you sign up for this sporting test you can expect four challenging workouts throughout the day, each approximately 25 minutes long and curated by professional strength and conditioning coaches and fitness industry experts.

The competition is suitable for mixed abilities and the event will not include any technical lifts or movements such as muscle ups, rope climbs, or snatches. Workouts will, however, feature popular movements such as deadlifts, burpees, sled pushes, box jumps and some running.

The format of each challenge will be the same for all teams except for female-only duos, who will be requested to achieve 50% of the challenge workload.

After the event, all competitors are welcomed to an ‘after-party’, with music, drinks and BBQ food available.
