The Team Division is for Pro and Amateur athletes that want to compete on a team. There are two team divisions: Pro Team and Amateur Team. You will register your team and your athletes specifically in the team division. Teams will need to sign up all four athletes with separate email addresses, 2 men and 2 women. If you are not sure about whether to compete with a team or as an individual, you may sign up for both divisions with a separate email address. In the case of your team making it and you as an individual making it, you may find a new person to compete at TFX in your place, if you choose to compete as an individual.
The teams ranked 1-20th will qualify as Pro Teams and the teams ranked 21-50th will qualify as Amateur Teams for TFX competition in January.
Community (formerly the Scaled Light Division)
The Community Division is not a qualifying division. This division is perfect for the athlete that would like to participate in the online competition but will not advance to the TFX competition in January. This is about challenging yourself, testing yourself, and ultimately discovering what you are capable of!
Competitors are allowed to complete the workouts as many times as desired, but only one submission is allowed. All submissions must be received by 8:00PM CT on the designated day. No late entries will be accepted.
For an entry to be valid, all workouts must be recorded. If you qualify we will request one of your videos to be submitted. Be sure to have a running clock in the frame at all times. We suggest using the WeTime App to record your workout. The clock will be in view and you don’t have to worry about storing videos on your phone!
In order to be considered for cash prizes you must submit a video.
