AoC Sport Fittest Student

We have created a brand new activation and engagement for our colleges and their students to take part in. The 1st March 2021 will see the launch of the AoC Sport Fittest Student competition.

During the competition, we will aim to analyse each element of your fitness via a series of focused workouts, challenges and engagements based around various different aspects of your fitness using primarily bodyweight (a weighted version will come when the gyms are back open). Using unique algorithms we will take into account every persons height, weight, age and gender so that everyone has a chance to compete on a truly level playing field of fitness.

4 WEEKS + 8 WORKOUTS = FITTER YOU

Take me to the competition now, I don’t need to know anymore

THE AIM

The fitness and wellbeing (both physical and mental) of every student in every college in the UK is essential. Taking part in sport or training in the gym often provides the main element that makes up the physical element to fitness but in these trying times where access to sport and fitness facilities is limited, we need to find alternative methods.

THE WORKOUTS

There are 8 workouts that will be delivered to your mailbox via Team Aretas every Monday and Wednesday starting on the 1st March 2021. Each workout will have a designated modality behind it, some might be to stress your cardio, some your upper body and others your lower body.

Every workout has a Time Cap of 20 minutes.

THE COMPETITION IS FREE

To be part of the AoC Sport Fittest Student you will need to register on Archon. You will then be redirected to register on Team Aretas where you will find the overall leaderboard and you will input all of your scores.

JOINING THE COMP

Each workout will have a unique pin number for you to enter your scores into like the one below. When you receive each workout you will be directed on how to enter each combine in order to submit your score.

EXAMPLE PIN 204369

 

WHY JOIN

It’s been a pretty rubbish 12 months or so, but we all need to remain active and support our communities and colleges. We also know that there will be a return to activity sometime soon and so we want you to use the competition to stay (or get) in condition so that when they give the green light, and we can get back to the sports and activities we all love.

WHO DOESN’T LOVE A BIT OF FRIENDLY COMPETITION?

Whilst we want you to have fun, we also want you to create some friendly competition. With this in mind, we will be sharing everything on social media and building a community through the AoC and Archon community.

WHAT’S FAIR GAME?

Fair Game is the fact that when you do a workout we are putting our trust in you to have watched and adhered to the criteria of each movement in the videos on Archon. Then when it comes to inputting your scores you put them in as you did them, no exaggeration. Don’t let us, yourself or your community down.
