THE MANOR X-FIT GAMES 2012
It will be a high intensity based competition using a fitness concept called CrossFit as our main inspiration for the challenges. If you’ve never heard of CrossFit then please click on the attached link:
Obviously, our competition won’t be on that scale and we don’t have the equipment, facilities or resources to carry out anything of that enormity. However, what we are looking for from competitors is that level of effort, intensity and mental focus that you get from CrossFit.
This IS NOT a competition based on one specific area of fitness. We don’t want to find the person who can lift the most or run the furthest, we want to find the best all-rounder, what you may lack in strength (for example) you can make up for in endurance.
There will be a small entry fee applicable to all who enter:
MANOR MEMBERS – £5
NON-MEMBERS – £15 (This price includes access in to the gym for the five times you will need to be adjudicated for the one Introductory Class and the four Qualifying Challenges <SEE BELOW>)
ALL PROFITS MADE WILL BE SPLIT 50:50 INTO PRIZES AND IMPROVING GYM FACILITIES. THIS WAY BOTH MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS WILL BENEFIT.
The Manor X-Fit Games will comprised of the following:
ONE Introductory Class for ALL those who wish to enter so that you can judge whether or not you are able to do the exercises we set throughout the competition. If you cannot do them, do not enter. There will be NO simplified variations. However, if there are enough people to warrant a simplified category (due to genuine injury, not laziness!) then we will do so.
FOUR Qualifying Rounds. A different challenge will be set every week for four weeks leading up to the final. Every candidate MUST complete ALL challenges to qualify to the final. It won’t matter what your qualifying challenge time is, just so long as ALL challenges are completed. You will be able to complete the challenge at a time that suits you.
The FINAL will be a one-day event with an awards night in the evening to congratulate everyone who has entered. Prizes will be awarded to the top contenders.
