We are excited to announce that we will be bringing the Turf Games experience to the SFA Expo '23 on Friday 19th May at Riyadh Front.

10am - 12.30pm: In the morning of the show during the shows opening hours we will be hosting our endurance concept - Turf Games ENGINE.  This event will be testing your endurance or what we like to call - your ENGINE.  There will be options to enter as an -

  • Individual 
  • Pair - 2 x males or 2 x females


    ENGINE:  An endurance workout which will take between 35 to 45 minutes to complete.  This is a low skill, all cardio based workout where you either compete by yourself and work through the difference distances (see example workout below), or partner up with a friend to share the workload and have plenty of fun together. If you compete as a pair, there will be one machine and you share it to complete the distances on each machine.  On the 150m run, both athletes will run.

    If you love cardio and ergs - and want to test your fitness - this is for you.  An example of how the workout will look is below (this will be very similar to the workout that will be at the Expo) -

    Teams will compete in 4 x 12 minute time capped workouts with a 6 minute break in between - taking a total of 1 hour and 6 minutes. Your heat start time will be provided to you minimum one week before the event. You will not be required for the full duration of the day you compete. For example, if your start time is 2pm - workout 1 will be 2pm, workout 2 - 2.18pm, workout 3 - 2.36pm and workout 4 - 2.54pm. You should arrive minimum 40 minutes before your heat start time to warm up and get ready to hit the TURF. 

    We will have 2 divisions to choose from - 

    • Everyday
    • Open

    Any weight or movements that we stipulate (like DBs, KBs etc) will be appropriate to that level - see below table for guides.  Each workout will be judged and will have scores on our LIVE! Leaderboard.  By the end of each division, podium places will be crowned across each of the divisions / categories above.

    This is NOT a 'CrossFit' comp - rather a functional fitness comp - there will be -

    - NO overhead squats
    - NO gymnastic movements (no handstands, no muscle ups or double unders).

    The workouts will be accessible to anyone who attends a gym. 



    This is our 'accessible' category that anyone who wants to get on the TURF  - the weekend warrior, the 2-4 x a week gym goer, the person who wants to test their training in a team with their friends but not in a 'serious' way - can get involved. 

    Their will be partner prizes for the winning team from each category.  This is the perfect division for those who may want to 'compete' in fitness for the first time or just want to be on the TURF and unleash their competitive spirit.

    Please see the above table for weight guidance of certain movements.


    Those athletes and teams who have competed in fitness comps before or come from a sport / fitness background or take their training a little more seriously.  

     Workouts will be very similar to the Everyday category, the big difference will be the weight set on some movements and also a few more 'fun' movements thrown in.

    Please see the above table for weight guidance of certain movements.

    Please respect the categories and ensure that your team enters the right category to make it a fair and fun competition for all.  Any eligibility questions, please email caroline@turfgames.com.  


    Entry for the team will be $60usd ($20 / athlete)

    *Entry to the Turf Games Fittest in the City - Riyadh, will also include a 3 day pass to the SFA Expo.
