Turf Games Winter Festival 2019
FOR THE ATHLETE WITHIN
WHAT are the Turf Games?
We believe that team based competition brings out the best in everyone. The Turf Games is London’s first functional fitness and TEAM based immersive competition, where guys and girls across all levels of fitness can lift, run, flip, press and jump to try and outdo the competition.
What is it exactly? Think about the exercises you might do at the gym or a fitness studio - add some competition, some team mates, turn the intensity up a notch and get ready to have one of your best days working out you have ever had.
The Turf Games Winter Festival is building off the phenomenal success of the Summer event at Rosslyn Park, London in June 2018.
The format of this event will be different - think nightclub, mixed with disco mixed with fitness.
WHY be involved?
Test yourself against your peers and channel the athlete within. Remember that time your team came from behind in the finals, with just seconds to win? So do we. Moments like those, shared with your team, are ones you don’t forget easily.
WHERE - location and dates
Saturday 9th February
The 2019 London Winter festival Turf Games will take place at Brunel University Kingston Ln, London, Uxbridge UB8 3PH in West London on Saturday 9th February. It's a 25 minute work from Uxbridge Tube Station. The facility is an indoor track with a strength and conditioning setup as well - no need to worry about the cold or wet.
Assemble your team 5 athletes. Team options are All Male, All Female or Mixed Teams. We will have two categories per team -
Elite Athletes + Everyday Athletes. All athletes will be doing the same workouts, same as the Summer festival - however, post all the workouts in the 'rounds' there will be separate finals for each category. See below for how it will work.
MEN's teams have 5 athletes
WOMEN's teams have 5 athletes
MIXED GENDER - 5 athletes per team, made up of maximum 3 guys and minimum 2 girls
HOW 'CATEGORIES' WILL WORK
As mentioned above, all teams and athletes will compete in the same workouts across the 'rounds or heats' - same as the Summer Festival. After these workouts the top 8 or so teams (we will let you know closer to the time) will go through to the ELITE FINALS - where there will be a knockout semi final and then 4 teams go through to the FINAL. Once we reach the elite semi final stage, the weights and intensity will go up a few notches. This category across men's, women's and mixed will have prizes across the division of £6K +.
Everyday Athlete Plate Finals - Once the elite finals teams have been determined, the next 4 teams in each division, so using the above example, teams that placed 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th in the rounds/heats - will go through to the men's, women's and mixed Everyday Athlete Plate Final to win and receive sponsors prizes + trophy.
- There will be no Oly lifting or gymnastic movements in either elite or everyday category finals
- ALL athletes across both categories will do identical workouts with the same weights etc in the 'rounds/heat' stages of the competition. In the Elite category - once we reach the semi finals and final, the intensity/weight will increase. The Everyday finals level will stay the same.
- The Everyday category is designed to allow those teams who want to compete and be part of the Turf Games community, the opportunity to also win some prizes.
The workout format will all be revealed closer to the time - but in true Turf Games style - strategy, engine, power and mental strength will be the theme!
Types of exercises...
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 Olympic weightliting 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 bikes/Ski Ergs/Rowers/Treadmills
- Barbell work – deadlifts/shoulder press etc
- Dumbell snatches/Dumbell lunges
- Box jumps
- Burpees/air squats/sit ups/push ups
- Tyre Flips
- Prowler push/pull
- Farmers walks
- Sand bags carrys and so on...
