2.0 Next Level Fitness is proud to announce that we will be conducting our first ever fitness competition also known as the "Winter Games". The 2016 Winter games will be a fun but challenging day/week where you can test your strength, endurance and overall fitness competency in a controlled environment. 

Why the Winter Games?

  • Gives you something to train for - It is no secret, the most successful people on the planet all have specific goals which they are trying to achieve. The fitness world is no different, specific goals are needed to achieve maximum results. Without knowing why or what you are training for you can easily fall into the "trap" of randomness and random training can lead to random results. Or as the famous motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else". So if you don't have a specific goal in mind the 2016 winter games is now your new focus.
  • It establishes a bench mark for you to measure your personal progress -  Are you getting stronger? Are you improving your endurance? It can be hard to tell unless you have a specific bench mark to test yourself. Bench marks are awesome because you know the answer immediately. Did you lift more weight (then last time)? Did you do more reps (then last time)? Did you finish faster (then last time)? If your answer is yes to any of those questions you know that your training is working. If the answer is no, it maybe time to make adjustments to your training, but regardless of the answer, the information you get is absolutely priceless. 
  • The playing field is even (or at least as even as possible) - Most (not all) of the movements of the Winter Games are based on a percentage of your own bodyweight. Stronger people have more muscle mass but that muscle mass comes as a price because muscle is heavy. So this means that the "stronger" people will have to lift much more weight then the "not as strong" people.
