RN Functional Fitness League

Event description

Aim

The aim of this event is to provide a 12 week structured workout plan for RNRM Personnel with an added competitive element which can be performed at shore or sea. It is designed to cultivate good exercise and movement habits, to workout at your own fitness standards and to cultivate an inclusive workout environment for all.

Individual entrants may use this as a kick start back into fitness and to compete in an online competition challenging their mess deck peers or departments.

The fitness league is intended to be an ongoing workout series so regardless of how you think you may or may not  perform, it will be good to look back and witness your progressioin from scaled to rx competition or from finishing in 28th place to 21st the following year for example.
