IS THIS A SERIOUS COMPETITION?

You betcha!!  Okay kidding again… sort of.  We want you to work your hardest and really push yourself, but we also want you to have FUN and be safe!  You are ultimately competing with YOURSELF!  There will be rankings based on gender and fitness level, but the real test comes at the April event (should you choose to participate in… which you totally should)… and we’ll see how much you’ve improved since January!  ALL fitness levels are welcome!

Testing our physical abilities through fitness is a prize in and of itself, but YES… there will be other prizes as well!  In addition, all participants will receive a swag bag with goodies from Success Fitness and our event sponsors, an event t-shirt to record your challenge stats, and healthy refreshments on event day!

WHAT’S UP WITH THIS APRIL EVENT?

Oooh you’ve been reading all the details! 
So here’s the scoop; we were thinking… one decathlon is cool… but you know what would be WAY cooler??  Two Decathlons!  And doing them 3 months apart!  Compete against yourself and others, and take your chance at winning the trophy for the most improved contender! LET’S GO!!!!

OH HECK YES! LET’S GO!!
IS THE EVENT FAMILY-FRIENDLY?

ABSOLUTELY!  In fact, we encourage it!  Few things make us happier than seeing parents setting such stellar examples for their children!  Be sure to use the “youth” registration option!  And no being a sore loser if your kid beats you 😉 

OUTDOOR EVENTS?! IN JANUARY?!?!

Yep… kwitcherbitchin!
Okay, but seriously, we know January in Minnesota can be brutal.  In the event of severe weather beyond what even the toughest Minnesotans can withstand, we will move the planned outdoor activities to indoors. 
But come prepared for the outdoors with hat, gloves, scarf, parka, ski goggles… you get the point 🙂
