The 1st workout of the Drive Fitness 4 Week Workout Series is underway, I hope you've all been enjoying it so far! It's now time to announce workout 2. We will be announcing each workout 1 week in advance to give you a chance to prepare. Checkout workout 2 and full details about the 4 WWS here...

WORKOUT 2017-2

Complete the row distance as fast as possible followed by 1 set of max reps on the bench press. Allow 1 min rest between the finish of the row and the start of the bench press. Each rep on the bench press will reduce your row time by 3 seconds.

  • Row (1500m for men, 1300m for women)
  • Bench Press (75% body weight for men, 50% body weight for women)

Your score is your row time minus 3 seconds for every rep you complete on the bench press.

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.


  • Workouts will require a combination of strength, fitness & technique and are deliberately designed to be challenging.
  • Workouts will include a combination of exercises that you typically encounter in your personal training sessions, your trainer will help you prepare in advance so you can complete the workouts safely.
  • Workouts are to be completed during your personal training session within the scheduled week - 1 workout each week for the 4 week period.
  • Workouts will be announced 1 week in advance of the scheduled launch date and your trainer will help you prepare. 
  • Workouts are scalable so they can be made suitable for everyone to participate - It's not just about winning - take the challenge!
  • Each workout will be scored and the scores from all 4 workouts will be combined to find 1st, 2nd & 3rd for for men and women. Medals will be awarded to the top 3.


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!


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.
