By AFM – April 1, 2012

Day One: June 9, 2012: Pre-Qualifying The 2012 AFM FITTEST is capped at 500 lucky competitors. There are five age groups, each comprised of no more than 50 men and 50 women, ranging from 20-29 years to 60+. Each age group will be assigned a heat time for the pre-qualifying round on Saturday, June 9, beginning with the 60+ age division. Composite test scores will be given, and the top ten competitors in each age group will progress to the finals on Sunday, June 10.Day Two: June 10, 2012: Finals The finals will be an exciting competition among Saturday’s top 100 athletes. The top ten men and ten women from each age group will start fresh on Sunday (no scores carry from the previous day). At the end of the day, the male and female in each age group with the best composite score will make up an elite group, Austin’s 10 Fittest, and will be featured in the August issue of Austin Fit Magazine. Also on Day Two are the Team Competition and the Open Invitational. Team Competition: The Team Competition starts off the finals day. Participation is limited to ten teams made up of ten people. Each team can have no more than six men (no fewer than four women), and each member of the team will perform one of the FITTEST challenges. A composite team score will be tabulated. The winning team will be featured in the August issue of AFM. Invitational: Following the age group finals on Sunday, the Open Invitational segment will showcase a handpicked assortment of Austin health and fitness notables. This promises to be an exciting performance before the awards ceremony on Sunday. Awards: Those participating in the finals will receive a medal. The winners of each age group will also be awarded a 2012 AFM FITTEST trophy, as well as hundreds of dollars in prizes and awards. The two top performers (one male, one female) will win a Nexersys, provided by 2012 AFM FITTEST presenting sponsor, Nexersys.
