Join PNWU SAMOPS (Student Association of Military Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons) for an online Fitness Competition! Taking into consideration the health and safety of our community, we are hosting this online event that still allows participants to compete against friends, family, and neighbors in the comfort and safety of their own home or backyard. This competition is OPEN TO EVERYONE, regardless of a participant's past experience with fitness. Workouts will be posted on our website weekly and will be able to be performed even with limited to no equipment! Workouts will highlight heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice: Service members who have lost their lives in line of duty.

These workouts are meant to be challenging, but keep in mind that no matter how physically grueling it might be, nothign compares to the ultimate sacrifice these service members endured.

There will be two categories, each with age subcategories: Master (over 50 years old), RX (as prescribed) Teens (under 18) and Novice/scaled. Top 3 in each category will receive a gift bag of prizes. RX division top 3 will include cash prizes. NOTE: Athletes of all ages may compete in RX division.

Please read over the workouts (at the end) to see what category to sign up for. If the weights/movements in masters/teens/RX are too difficult, you may sign up for novice/scaled.

Category 1. Workouts that can be done at regular gyms that include equiptment such as barbells/weights, rowers, etc.,

Category 2. Workouts that can be done without any equiptment.

Registration is free to everyone.
