Nearly two dozen people battled it out for the top prize of the fitness competition which began at 9:30 a.m. The event combined five workouts that tested the athletes’ strength, mobility, balance and endurance. The workouts included carrying a 60- and 40-pound sandbag up a steep hill for 100 yards, carrying a 35- and 25-pound “slam ball” for 50 meters, over-the-wall burpees and overhead medicine ball throws.
