The Ninja Games 2022 and Schedule Update

The Ninja Games 2022 and Schedule Update

Pair up and throwdown at the Ninja Games on the 2nd of July.

The Ninja Games 2022

It’s time to put your fitness to the test during a 1 day in-house competition with all your Ninja buddies. 
We’ll be testing which buddy pair has the best overall fitness with 3 workouts for all teams and 1 grand finale for the best teams. 

Each workout will have elements of weights, cardio and gymnastics to make sure the tests don’t favor specific body types and you can join the RX division or go scaled. 
Sign up with the poster on the whiteboard next to the office. 

This competition really is for everybody, whether you’re as fit as you’d like to be or not. Want to go RX? Make sure you can both do:
-Double unders
-Toes to bar
-Pull ups
-Deadlift 100/65 kg
-Clean 60/40 kg
-Snatch 50/35 kg 
If you’re still learning these movements, join the scaled division. 
Disclaimer: It’s competition day, substituting exercises (like biking instead of running) won’t be allowed. 

To make this day a great succes we need some volunteers. 
If you want to be a part of this without going HAM on 3 workouts, please sign up as a volunteer. We need a judge team, a gear team, and a barbecue/drinks team.

Expect great fun, lot’s of PR’s, good weather and an awesome BBQ!
