I am excited, pumped and honored to be nominated for Fit Company Austin's Fittest Professional Competition. The Fittest Entrepreneur category!!! Although I was very excited I had no idea what exactly it was about so I thought I would share that with all of you:).
What is The Fittest Professional Competitions? Well it offers professionals an opportunity to show their colleagues, clients, and the greater Austin community that they live fit and healthy while being challenged to see how fit they are.Through a fitness challenge that is both a mental and physical test of toughness along with a short interview competitors will be able to see how they rank as a fit Professional.
Finalists in each category will be featured in Austin Fit Magazine, and all contenders will be promoted through our promotional sponsors and will be recognized for promoting fitness and health in the professional community. Every finalist will be featured in Austin Fit Magazine (AFM) and the top overall Male and Female contenders in each competition track will receive special recognition.
What is tested in the competition?
The overall competition is measured by 3 tests –
- Fitness Challenge (50%)
- Survey / Interview (40%)
- Online voting from the public (10%)
The fitness challenge includes a number of fitness stations which include cardio vascular, endurance, and strength (primarily body weight) components that must all be completed for fastest time. While the exact fitness challenge will not be announced until mid-March, 2012, we expect each contender to be able to complete the challenge, but also to be tested to their fullest potential (and have fun!). Click here for a list of exercises we recommend contenders are able to complete to be ready for the fitness challenge.
Once all the testing is complete, we will open up each contenders page for voting. This is the contender’s chance to share their page with their colleagues and promote living fit and healthy! The voting segment of the overall competition makes up 10% of the contender’s score.
PRETTY COOL RIGHT? I guess we will see how it goes. Pretty sure the competition can't be as hard as 7 minutes of Burpees BUT......in my eyes nothing is!!! HA! I'd like to think I am well qualified for this sort of competition? We shall see! I sure hope so :)
