The 4 Week Workout Series involves 4 challenging workouts for you to complete during your personal training sessions - 1 workout each week for 4 weeks. You can use your results as your own fitness bench mark  or you can compare your results with other participants from all Drive Fitness locations to see how you stack up. You can even compare your results to your personal trainer. Your personal trainer will be completing the workout 1 week before you so you can use their score as a target if you'd like to try and beat them at their own game!

Everyone who trains at Drive Fitness is welcome to take part in the 4 Week Workout Series. It's not about winning but about taking on new challenges, having some fun and finding interesting ways to keep training exciting. If you're interested in participating let your trainer know so we can help you prepare.

HOW IS THE 4 WEEK WORKOUT SERIES SCORED?

At the end of each week your overall place will become your score - 1 point for 1st place, 2 points for 2nd place, 3 points for 3rd place and so on. Tied scores will receive the same place (and score), missed workouts will be scored as last place (highest score possible). At the end of the 4 weeks your 4 scores for each of the 4 workouts will be added together to get your overall score. Lower your score the better!

DOES THE 4 WEEK WORKOUT SERIES HAVE TO BE COMPETITIVE?

Absolutely not! You can use the 4 week workout series as a way to mix up your training, bench mark your fitness improvements by repeating the workouts in 6-8 weeks time, to compete with other people within the Drive Fitness community or to try to beat your trainer at their own game! We encourage everyone to get involved and use it in a way that benefits you and your training.
