Well done to all that participated and good luck in the January challenge. Here is where you will find all results throughout 2018 and the previous year’s winners.
As We are already on the nostalgia train with the repeat of the 2017 March Challenge as last months challenge… albeit with a twist. Let’s keep going and get off at the next stop with a more intense version of the Leg Press challenge from January 2018.
This time lets see if we can test client’s symmetry with the single leg press. If anything, it should be easier as you’ll only have to worry about one leg at a time instead of two!
For the full list of rules and warm-up to prepare you for the challenge head there now to get a ‘leg up’ on everyone else… no? bad pun?... I’ll let myself out.
2018 Winners and Prizes
After Tom Clark and Keith Hill got joint first place in the 2018 challenges, we had to hold a special ‘Mega Challenge’ in January to decide who gets top, as we can only have one winner!
There were three challenges one they each did best in and one that was considered hard for both. These were the 3km uphill run from June 2018, chest press ladder from March 2018, and sled push September 2018.
In the end Keith took victory completing all three challenges in 30 minutes and 39 seconds with Tom finishing off in 32 minutes. This means top three places for all of 2018 go to –
First – Keith Hill with 162 Points
Second – Tom Clark with 155 Points
Third – Martyn Lee with 122 Points
Full prizes are yet to be announced but all three will receive there custom 2018 challenge T-shirts. If you want to see where you placed for all of 2018 go to the Elemental fitness Challenge page now to see every single year and challenge, we have done so far!
A massive well done to all that participated in all last year’s challenges, there was some impressive improvements from all, with personal bests being smashed almost daily. Good luck for 2019!
