Search for a superhero 2017

Evolution Gym members are the best in the country and to test their mettle, fitness and tenacity we designed a 12 month challenge to find the best all round male and female athletes in the gym. Not only that it sets a personal challenge to everyone one of us to challenge ourselves to undertake events inside and outside our comfort zones. Not everyone can be a superhero but we can all learn new skills and be the best we can be in each event.

Each month we had a different challenge:

Jan Row

Feb Plank

Mar Bench your bodyweight

Apr Pull ups

May Mile Run

Jun Dips

Jul Handstand press-up

Aug Crucifix hold

Sep Viking Press bodyweight

Oct Press ups in one minute

Nov Leg press 1 minute

Dec Medley

Scores were calculated with 10 for a first place through to 1 point for 10th.

Each month we had a winner, but the collection of points was the goal so you didn’t necessarily need to win to become the superhero but be consistent.

Our first winners were Adam Walker and Nichola Fuller in the row back in January 2017.

So after 12 months of gruelling events who were our SUPERHEROES?

Well the two athletes with the best all round ability and skills were:

LIZZIE HUTSON AND ADAM WALKER

Well done to our 2017 Superheroes!!!

The full table of everyone’s results will be up soon.

Roll on the 2018 search.

Search for a Superhero

It’s true that our members are amazing and achieve such great things daily. However, over a little drink at Christmas we were wondering who is the best all round performer? We have experts in their own field but who is the general fitness champ.

We decided to start a search for our female and male superheros. 12 events over 12 months over a wide variety of disciplines.

January started with a 1000m row on the concept 2 towers. Lots of us have neglected this piece of equipment for quite a while and the machine bed have sat quietly in the coroner of the cardio room waiting for us to return.

Well return we did and wow what an exercise – I put everything into my row and it took everything with a giggle leaving me drained, oxygenless, burning quads and triceps and biceps on the edge of exploding. I loved it and I will be back.

Lots of members took part with the top 10 of each gender getting points. 

Our January rowing Champs were Nichola Fuller and Adam Walker who blew us all away with amazing times!! 

They are our first 10 point winners towards our annual Superhero titles but will they be able to maintain the lead only time will tell.

Watch this space.
