Fitness challenge: Mount Si Sports + Fitness tests mettle in demo
Mount Si Sports + Fitness is bringing the fitness challenge back to the North Bend Block Party.
The gym hosts an Extreme Fitness Competition, 6:15 p.m. next to the beer garden on Main Avenue, during Saturday’s party.
The challenge is a circuit of various exercises, from partner pushups and box jumps to the sumo deadlift and dumbell thrusters, challenging a group of handpicked entrants to work out in new ways.
“They’ll be pretty intense,” said Mount Si owner Ben Cockman.
When judges blow the whistle, entrants will begin at each station. Judges will count reps, and the fittest competitor wins. Entrants, one man and one woman, will rotate through each stations.
This challenge is all about showing locals new ways to work out,” said Cockman. “It’s how exercise physiology has evolved.”
A lot of the latest methods involves agility, things like kettle bells, and body weight.
These exercises will push the limits of experienced fitness practitioners, some of whom locals may recognize.
Cheer on these contestants Saturday afternoon, just before the live music starts.
