Can I ask a quick favor?

We are ALMOST ready to open registration for the FVT Ultimate Challenge Workout.

As we get things wrapped up and ready to rock, wanted to get YOUR feedback on a few things.

Here’s what we got so far:

— The FVT Ultimate Challenge Workout is going to be an EPIC three to four hour workout event … think “extreme” mud run meets fitness competition meets FVT challenge workout

— Tentative date is Saturday, January 10th

— The event will be an “ultimate” test of your overall fitness – strength, endurance, and much more … everything from feats of strength like pull ups and pressing heavy KBs, to running a 5k, to everything in between

Here’s some things we’re thining of including / encorporating – but would LOVE to get your feedback on, to make this event as awesome as possible:

— We are thinking of having a main event – where the focus is teamwork and FINISHING, not competing for a specific time … and a BONUS (shorter and optional participation) event the end, which will have a competition aspect for those that want to take it to the next level.

What are your thoughts on including a competition aspect?

— The MAIN focus of this is a fun event to train for and keep FVT members motivated over the holiday season. That being said – we initially thought of making it FREE. BUT … we also know from events and challenges etc we’ve held in the past … folks don’t take it as seriously if they don’t have a little “skin in the game”, so to speak.

Also keeping in mind the time and energy etc to organize something like this – what do you feel is a fair registration price?

— We will train for it over the next two months – Nov and Dec – as part of the boot camp classes at FVT. We’ll work things in to the mix like pull ups and short runs and heavy lifting and MUCH more.

Would you like to have some training in ADDITION to the workouts we are doing in the regular boot camps at FVT, specially geared towards this event? Maybe a private Facebook group for all that are registered? Keeping in mind possible additional time/cost factors with both of these things of course as well.

Please leave your feedback in the comments section below.  Please leave feedback in the actual blog comments section, NOT in the Facebook comments area.  Thanks!!

Thanks in advance!  Can’t wait to get this thing going!!

    I think the concept of a team type event with a overall competition factor is great (Hope I would get picked to be on a team) and maybe adding a small competition at the end for those who want to compete on a singular level would be acceptable. Cost, how about a $40.00 (is that a fair price? ) kind of entry fee, which might include access to a private Facebook coaching page or something a little extra. I think we may need a age matrix though (okay that’s a personal request) for us that are a little longer in the tooth so to speak. Over all I think it’s a great way to keep motivated and have a goal through the holidays.

    I don’t see this as a viable option for me. Personally, I would like to see an option for those of us who are a bit less competitive. I don’t know what it would look like. Maybe I just don’t see how I could fit in with the challenge.

      Thanks Debbie!

      Yes we also are planning a “holiday accountability” program where if you come to 8 or more workouts per month in Nov and Dec, you get entered into a raffle to win some cool prizes!

    Love the team building aspect, it creates unity among the gym members. Extra training would be great but I lack extra time and funds to do more than I do now. Love the idea of training for an event during the holidays, helps keeping focused on personal goals.

    I think the concept is great. Perhaps have daily suggested workouts to prep for the big event? FB group for the event and teams is a great idea!

    I like the idea of working in teams as I’m more interested in the challenge to finish, not competing. I’d like to do the prep at boot camp, I won’t have extra time during the holidays. I think a low entrance fee to cover your costs would be reasonable.
