WHAT IS THE TURF GAMES SUMMER FITNESS FESTIVAL
Turf Games is the ultimate team based fitness competition. While fitness and competition is at the heart of what we are about, our festivals are a celebration of the community and fun that we love.

'Everyday Athlete' teams will ONLY compete on the Saturday 15th.
The Saturday event will require athletes to arrive by 8am, all everyday athlete teams will work through 3 arenas and then finals if qualify
What is the difference between the divisions?
ELITE - you back yourself as a good athlete and want to compete against the best. There will be some serious prizes on offer for this division. We will have international athletes flying in to compete to try and take the title. Categories will be Men's, Women's and Mixed - 5 athletes per team. Elite teams will compete in one workout on the Friday Night, and then the rest of the workouts on the Saturday. Athletes will need to be available for Friday & Saturday. Mixed teams MUST be 3 male and 2 female athletes. While the Elite category will be more intense, it will also be loads of fun.
ELITE STANDARDS - In terms of standards elite male and female athletes should be able to (as a guide, it doesn't mean these will be the movements) -
- Deadlift reps a 110kg/70kg bar
- Overhead for reps 60kg/35kg barbell
- Pick up and carry a 70kg/50kg dead ball
- Dumbell snatch reps at 25kg/17.5kg
- Kettle bell rep with 32kg/24kg
- There will of course be aerobic work which will make up a big portion of workouts as well.
EVERYDAY ATHLETE DIVISION - The Everyday Athlete division will be like a throwback to your high school Sports day - loads of fun, lots of banter, plenty of sweating, a few challenges to test you and your team - and of course some rewards for doing well. The weight & intensity will be less than ELITE.
This division is for those athletes (we think everyone is an athlete :) who train pretty regularly, love a challenge, love fitness, want to have a great day out with friends, push themselves to a certain limit (but not too far) and be part of something special - and more than likely surprise yourself with what you can achieve as part of a team. The Everyday division will consist of team relays, medley's, tyre flips, pushes and pulls - lots of fun stuff that doesn't require a huge amount of individual skill - just great team work! Compete to win some great sponsors prizes and medals.
STANDARDS for Everyday and Corporate Event -
As a guide, in terms of weight, please see below. The below does not mean that these will be in the workouts but are below as a guide as to -
- Kettlebells will be no heavier than 16kg for females and 24kg for males

Types of exercises...
The arenas which will be hosted by London's best and biggest gyms and studios will be programming some unreal Turf Games style workout.
All exercises throughout the day will be movements that anybody who has been to a gym or played sport will be able to do - just the fun stuff – there will be NO gymnastic or heavy Olympic weightlifting style movements. If the movement involves weight, it will be scaled so that all attending will be able to lift/move it – the stronger you are will just mean you will do more reps or complete the movement faster. Movements can include, as an example:
- Barbell/dumbbell holds
- Assault Airbikes
- Team relays
- Torque Tanks
- Concept 2 Ski/Bike Ergs and Rowing machines
- Barbell work – deadlifts/shoulder press etc
- Dumbell snatches/Dumbell lunges
- Box jumps
- Burpees/air squats/sit ups/push ups
- Prowler push/pull
- Farmers walks
- Wall balls
- Tyre flips
- Sand bag carry's and so on...
