About the Event
The Primal Games (Outdoor Fitness Champions) is open to everyone of all levels and abilities. A fitness competition for you to assess your own level of functional fitness at the same time as giving you the chance to compete against your peers and win prizes.
With 5 different stations, test your fitness over 5 different fitness genres; Cardio, Muscular endurance (bodyweight), isometrics, pure strength and strength endurance.
Sign up with friends or make friends on the day, whichever way you sign up, you're bound to have a good time in the great outdoors, pushing your limits and encouraging your fellow games competitors.
Everyone has their own strengths and areas they could improve on, which is why The Primal Games has 5 event stations that measure lots of different genres, meaning you can score well on 1 station and not so well on another, the aim is to see where you can improve and score as many points as you can over the 5 event stations.
Event station 1 is the Bleep test.
A great cardiovascular test which adds in an element of agility and can be measured against industry standards, from 1st responders to members of elite special forces groups, as well as yourself and your peers.
Event station 2 is muscular endurance. An all-bodyweight workout lasting around 10 minutes, starting with easy movements and reps, building up minute by minute, giving you chance to push yourself till your muscles give out while testing your mental strength to keep going, with each rep you do getting you more points.
Event station 3 is the isometric strength.
Contraction of the muscles without movement (in a static position) assesses your grit and determination as well as your muscles physical endurance. Our 3 stations (hang, wall squat and high plank) will test your whole body and is a great measurement of overall health.
Event station 4 is the Strong-Human station.
Test your pure strength over our short course of pulling, carrying and lifting. Carry Army jerry cans 50m, drag a casualty 25m and lift our 5 Atlas bags over a 4ft wall. A great station for those who may not be as cardio driven.
Event station 5 is Run the Gauntlet.
This station will be different every Primal Games and this station will give you the chance to really see what you have left in the tank and how competitive you are at the end of the Games (extra points available). Compete or just complete, this station will be a favourite amongst the Primal athletes.
To be a Primal Athlete, is to take on new challenges, learn new movements and be constantly striving for progress over a whole range of different functional fitness methods.
