WHAT IS TURF GAMES
Turf Games is a team based functional fitness competition. Having started in London in 2018, we now host competitions all over the world including London, Dubai, Sydney, Gold Coast, Dublin, Cape Town and more. With more than 10,000 athletes having taken part in a Turf Games comp in 2023, we are excited to get to Miami in 2024!
How is it different to a CF comp? The workout tests that we programme are all built around teamwork - how to use your team's strengths and weaknesses - to maximise your score - all whilst having fun! The core of the workouts are based around - strength, conditioning and power. We don't programme any high skilled gymnastics or complex olympic lifting movements. You won't be seeing any hand stands, muscle ups, overhead squats, max barbell 1RM snatches - just good old fashioned hard work and determination. The workouts will be fun, challenging and rewarding all at the same time. You've been training at the gym, now it's time to put all that into practice on the Turf surrounded by the fitness community.
Who enters a Turf Games? The Turf Miami City Series will 2 divisions to choose from, based on your level and why you want to take part. All over the world we get people entering from their local hiit studios, F45's, functional fitness gyms, 'globo' gyms, all the way to CF Boxes and 'Elite Athletes'.
Below is a guide on movement standards and also what division you should enter. Any questions please drop firstname.lastname@example.org an email.
We guarantee it will be a super fun day out!
