WHAT IS FITNESS RACING?
Fitness racing is a sport which tests an athlete’s all-round athletic ability in a competitive situation.
All-round athletic ability is demonstrated by competence in a variety of movements and skills that engage different energy systems.
At fitness racing competitions athletes undergo tests of strength, power, agility, balance, flexibility, strength endurance, speed, coordination and cardiovascular endurance.
