YOUR FIRST WORKOUT:
As Much Raised As Possible
Your first workout isn't to do with any fitness. It doesn't even take place on competition day. It starts as soon as you sign up!
You and your team will fundraise your hardest to earn a place on the leaderboard ahead of the four workouts on event day.
Here's how it works:
Sign up your team and choose a cancer charity to support
Receive your fundraising pack with ideas of how to fundraise and donate directly to your charity
Screenshot your fundraising total and submit your figure at registration on event day
Get ranked on the Battle Cancer leaderboard! The more you raise, the higher you'll place

HOW HARD IS IT?
Workouts are designed so that professional athletes may compete next to experienced gym-goers, first timers and cancer survivors. It's as hard (or as easy!) as you want to make it. There are no heavy weights, barbell, or gymnastics, just intuitive movements and simple equipment.
Are you an adaptive athlete? Are you recovering from treatment that limits your ability to complete certain movements? On the day our judges will make adjustments so that you can put your all into the workout.
WHAT ARE THE WEIGHT STANDARDS?
Standards are as follows for men/women, all weights are in kilograms:
Kettlebell 20/12, Dumbbell 20/12.5, Plates 20/10, Sand Bags 30, Wall Balls 9/6
We also use machines including rowers, ski ergs, and bike ergs. Further equipment may be added but will not exceed the weights stated above.
