TURF GAMES SYDNEY 17th Nov 2018

After the success of our first International City Series event in New York earlier this year, we thought it would be great to expand on this idea and take the concept to another fitness mecca.  Sydney, Australia was an easy choice.  

Fitness is a way of life in Australia and the functional fitness scene is huge.  On 17th November, 13 athletes representing TEAM LDN, will take on the might of the best Sydney can throw at us.  There will be 8 guys teams and 8 girls teams in total battling it out.  The location, at what can only be called a fitness lovers heaven - Chocolate Box Training.  

 

 CHOCOLATE BOX TRAINING - THE TG VENUE

Chocolate Box Training (CBT) on Sydney's Northern Beach, Dee Why to be exact, has everything plus some - anyone into fitness needs and wants.  Indoor track, loads of ergs, lifting platforms, rigs, all the fun strong man toys - you name it, they have it.  We are super excited to partner with CBT for the first ever Australian Turf Games.  Wade Farmer, certified Gym Jones instructor will be leading the charge for CBT

 

The event and athletes will also be supported by some phenomenal brands while in Oz including Under Armour, Esquared, Bodyscience and what trip wouldn't be complete to Australia without Budgy Smugglers

We are super excited to have Sydney's leading studios competing in the event -

  • 98 Riley Street - Russell Crows gym that was started by ex English Rugby League Player Chris Feather.  Also home to the current 1k and 2k Ski Erg world record holder Kate Hilliard
  • Befit Training - There head coach Ben Seymour, ex pro Rugby Player and now absolute machine will be heading up Befits teams and are are going to be very hard to beat
  • F45 Wooloomooloo - One of the original F45's and owned by current F45 playoff Australian champ Jess Sullivan
  • Esquared - former wallabies winger Drew Mitchell will be heading up these guys and putting together a strong team of ex pro athletes

 We are excited to have all the UK athletes kitted out by the #1 training brand in the world - Under Armour.  Bodyscience, Australia's leading supplement brand will be on site with an athlete recovery zone. It's going to be a good day.

The day will kick off at midday with athlete registration and then first workout from 1pm with podiums at 5pm then celebratory beers!
